Is this product for you?
A feeler gauge is used to accurately measure the thickness of a gap between two points where the measurements are only fractions of a millimetre. It can also be used to provide the correct thickness if this gap needs to be adjusted, for instance with spark plugs, distributor caps or even with valve clearances.
When building or servicing engines and other machinery - gaps and tolerances must be accurately measured. Your measurements can be spot on thanks to the range of feeler gauges from ToolPRO.
Where can it be used?
The metric feeler gauge set is ideal for easily measuring larger gaps, such as spark plugs. It contains 25x blades measuring from 0.04mm to 1mm in thickness. For even larger gaps, blades can be stacked as necessary.
Sizes include: 0.04, 0.05, 0.06, 0.07, 0.08, 0.09, 0.10, 0.15, 0.20, 0.25, 0.30, 0.35, 0.40, 0.45, 0.50, 0.55, 0.60, 0.65, 0.70, 0.75, 0.80, 0.85, 0.90, 0.95, 1.00mm
How easy is it to use?
Taking a measurement using a feeler gauge is easy. First, ensure that the gap to be measured is free of dirt or greasy build up. Make sure that the feeler gauges are clean and well-oiled also. Start by finding the closest possible blade that will fit in the gap. If the blade moves too freely within the gap, stack multiple blades until a snug fit is obtained. Feeling for resistance is key here. The proper resistance can be likened to pulling a sheet of paper from under a magazine, or peeling Sellotape off a roll. Now, add up the total thickness of all blades used and check this against a workshop manual to determine if your part is within specification.
When being used it should always be ensured that the feeler gauge is free of dirt, however it should always be lightly oiled to ensure that when the gap is snug and indicating the correct size that it has fluid movement.
