Purpose:

Dixie’s can seam test kit includes the tools needed in the process of can double seam inspection. The disc-cutter type can opener has an adjustable, heavy duty blade which allows you to cut a disc from the can cover without damaging the double seam. The end cutting nipper has perfectly matched hardened jaws to allow cutting through the seam to expose the cover hook, over-lap, and body hook. The can seam micrometers are graduated in thousandths of an inch (or hundredths of a mm) for measuring seam thickness and height. 173-C and 173-C-Metric micrometers feature a depth gauge for measuring countersink.
