A radius gauge or fillet gauge is a tool used to measure the radius of a curve. These tools are used for welding and light engineering work. They are typically designed to measure a radius of less than 150 degrees. There are several different styles of gauges, depending on the application and the manufacturer. A quality tool will measure both concave and convex sections.
