Electronic Stamp Perforation Gauge – Perfotronic 2 from SAFE (My review)

The world’s best electronic stamp perforation gauge!

Measuring the size of the perforation is faster tan you ever imagined! The use of advanced opto-electronic components give absolutely reliable results for all stamps. Calibration configured to give the perforation measurement in quarters. For example 12.25, but now perforation can be measured with an accuracy of a hundredth of a unit of the tooth (eg: 11.31)!


Why does the Perfotronic 2 is the Electronic Stamp Perforation Gauge we recommend?

Your valuables brought to light – Find if you own undiscovered values.
Two seemingly identical stamps – except for a difference in perforation value: perf. 13.25 or 13.5?, $10 or $2,500? Do you own an undiscovered rarity? The PERFOtronic will bring it to light.

Displays perforation in 1/4, 1/10 or 1/100 increments in a fraction of a second.

Discover hidden values the easy way.  An indispensible tool for determining the difference between two seemingly identical stamps.  Even measures missing perfs. Never miscount or loose perf count again!


How Can This Electronic Stamp Perforation Gauge help you with your stamps?

Do you have doubts when measuring the perforations?Electronic Stamp Perforation Gauge
You usually torture yourself with inaccurate and therefore unsuitable measuring devices. The measuring points begin to “dance” before your eyes. Even the experienced hand and trained eye fail to overcome the last doubt about the true value of a particular perf. The term “stamp perfs” sends up a red flag even to professionals. But not anymore . . . now that the PERFOtronic has appeared.

Todays computer age puts higher and higher demands on man and technology. Even professional sports forego centimeters and seconds, preferring electronic measuring in hundredths or thousandths of seconds. It is no surprise then that even in the collecting and hobby fields the same requirement for better and more precise equipment is expected.

SAFE’s PERFOtronic will fulfill them!

Beginning in the 1980’s SAFE developed the first worldwide testing instrument for watermarks, the Signoscope.
Now SAFE brings you another world’s first: The PERFOtronic, the precision measuring device for checking perforations.


What people are saying about the Perfotronic 2:

I have one myself, and I must confess I’m lazy with the perfs, so I actually enjoy using it.

  • Joe Kiel


“Having always disliked the druggery of measuring perforations, my Perfotronic is always within easy reach in my stamp study. I’d rather be sipping a nice glass of red instead of trying to manipulate an Instanta

  • Allan Kraft
