Below is the main screen of the Web Machinist “Sine Bar Set-Up Calculator”. Easily
Calculate the Gage Blocks Needed to Obtain a Desired Gage Blocks Height when Setting
Up an Inspection Sine Bar or Sine Plate. Also you can calculate the angle of a sine
bar based on the height of the gage blocks used to level the part on the sine bar.
Above is an example of the angle calculation with the Web Machinist Sine Bar Calculator.
In this case you just need to input the gage blocks height and the sine bar length
and the calculator will calculate the angle. Very nice! Below is the resulting
calculation from above.
The Web Machinist Sine Bar Set-up calculator is included in the Web Machinist Software
program seen below.
