I have decided to order the Gap Gauge set.

I had to think about it because I just bought a Starrett 1202 fractional caliper. But I think they'll actually compliment each other.

Besides, you can never have too many different ways to measure.

C'mon Fred, time to tell everybody about your new "sniping" software that automatically finds new tool announcements anywhere in the world and gets your order in first.

Neil,

I feel much better as your answer above was scaring me. I thought that maybe a Zombie got to you.

Keeping the line between these two sharp edges trully perpendicular against parallel faces is very difficult, even for experienced machinists. There are better tools for that.

Yessss, as I duly noted in my first post...

Callan, you DO realize that Rich Hummel is Mr. Woodpecker himself? As in, he invented the tool of which we speak? It's not nice to taunt The Boss...

Yes, I GOT that. TWAS not a taunt, I noted that I had voiced the same opinion about the small contact area of a dial caliper's jaw when measuring, and noted how the much larger area of the gauge would not be hindered like that. And THEN I ordered the whole set.......
I figure he got all that, and my order. But no disrespct was intended.

Yes, but he left out that you have to remember what you bought, and where you put it in your shop...
