Webster Instrument, Inc. is a fourth-generation, family-owned business that was founded by our grandfather, R.A. Webster, in 1932. The WEBSTER® Hardness Tester was developed during his years as the Chief of Inspection at the Douglas Aircraft Company. Webster Instrument, Inc. today remains owner-operated as we look into the future to continue building on our reputation of quality customer service.
The WEBSTER® Hardness Tester is a portable, fast, accurate hardness gauge that is made in three distinct models for testing aluminum, brass, copper, and mild steel. The WEBSTER® Hardness Tester will quickly identify tempers and test a variety of shapes that other testers cannot check, such as extrusions, tubing, and flat stock.
