- How much does it cost?
Minor repair and calibrations are only $69.95 per instrument for either hand dynamometers or pinch gauges. A major repair of a B&L Engineering Pinch Gauge requiring replacement of internal parts in the dial mechanism is $99.95. We do not repair hydraulic fluid leaks or broken dial mechanisms in hydraulic instruments or other brands of mechanical pinch gauges, but we do offer a $50 trade-in credit towards the purchase of a new B&L Engineering Pinch Gauge, Hand Dynamometer, or 3-piece Hand Evaluation Kit which includes a two-year warranty.
