The Magna-Mike® 8600 is a portable thickness gage that uses a simple
magnetic method to make reliable and repeatable measurements on nonferrous
materials. Operation of the Magna-Mike is very simple. Measurements are made
when its magnetic probe is held or scanned on one side of the test material and
a small target ball (or disk or wire) is placed on the opposite side or dropped
inside a container. The probe's Hall Effect sensor measures the distance between
the probe tip and tar
