What is a telescoping gauge used for?

Measuring the interior diameter of larger cylinders

Explanation

A telescoping gauge is used for measuring the interior diameter of larger cylinders that are too large for or too difficult to reach using a micrometer. This gauge uses a telescoping piston that expands to the diameter of the space to be measured. It is then removed and its extension measured by an outside micrometer.
