    Metric Feeler Gauges

    I have been looking far and wide for METRIC feeler gauges with small increments between the blades. I hate the SAE ones with metric equivalents printed on them. You always end up with weird thicknesses like .127mm.

    Hornig makes a set that goes in .02mm steps. I ordered up 2 sets.

    Individual sizes: 0,10 - 0,12 - 0,14 - 0,16 - 0,18 - 0,20 - 0,22 - 0,24 - 0,26 - 0,28 - 0,30 - 0,32 - 0,34 - 0,36 - 0,38 - 0,40 - 0,42 - 0,44 - 0,46 - 0,48 - 0,50

    I bought them from Creative Cycle Concepts, who I have dealt with before and found to be a good place. I think they are a small outfit, so they probably appreciate the business more than the big players. No affiliation; I am just a happy customer.

    Those look nice, as well. I like that the Hornig ones stay at .02mm steps instead of jumping to .05mm steps.

    I ordered last week and was notified they are back ordered on the gauges for at least several weeks.

    Just a heads up for anyone ordering, it might pay to call and verify stock.

    The Hornig ones look like the ones BMW sells (or sold). The price is sure right; mine are getting a bit tired so I'll grab a few new sets from them. Thanks for the link!

    You think feeler gauges are hard to find, I have to order my metric tape measures from the UK!
