I got this to measure tolerances for woodworking and have to say I'm delighted with it. I checked the accuracy with my .001 dial calipers and all blades were spot on. Each blade has the SAE and Metric sizes etched in and are easy to read. I like the fact that the thicker blades were placed at the top and bottom to protect the thinner blades in the middle. The thumbnut is just wider than the blades so it's easy to get a grip on it. The screw retaining the blades is fastened to the outer case so there's no chance of it all falling apart if the nut comes off. All in all a classy product for a very reasonable price.

I like to keep a feeler gauge in my tool box. It is important to verify spark plug gapping when doing small engine tune-ups or installing new plugs in any vehicle. This feeler gauge from GearWrench is very inexpensive but seems well made. The blades are labeled very clearly showing the clearances in both inches and metric, and they are large enough to read easily which is this old guy appreciates!

Everyone who works on cars needs one of these feeler gauges and this one is compact and accurate and one of the blades is a little ruler. It has all of the usual thicknesses that you will need. I actually use a feeler gauge for getting glue down into cracks when repairing broken wood items in my business, just spread wood glue along the crack then force it down into the crack with one of the blades on the gauge, be sure to wipe the glue off of the blade.

Every well equipped toolbox should have a set of feeler gauges. In fact with more sizes than this one has. This has the basic 15 types. Set covers SAE: 0.002, 0.003, 0.004, 0.005, 0.006, 0.008, 0.011, 0.012, 0.013, 0.014, 0.016, 0.018, 0.02, 0.022, 0.025 in. Set covers metric: 0.051, 0.076, 0.102, 0.127, 0.152, 0.203, 0.279, 0.305, 0.33, 0.356, 0.406, 0.457, 0.508, 0.599, 0.635 mm Which will cover most engine and spark plug jobs you can do at home. We still work on older engines and 2 cycle gas engines. And at some point you will need a tool like this. It comes with a life time warranty from a name you can trust.

It’s not every day that the average do-it-yourselfer needs a feeler gauge, but when one is needed, they are invaluable. Upon receiving the GearWrench model 162d, I liked how it appeared to be so well made. This set included SAE gauges ranging from 0.002 to 0.025 with the corresponding metric sizes from 0.051 to 0.635. More than enough for the weekend DIY working on a lawn mower or to a mechanic setting the tappet gap on a running engine (not a wood worker so I’m not sure how it could be used in that application). For me, the etched marking was easy to see, even with oil on the feeler gauge (important for us with declining vision due to age). I also liked how the thumb nut was large enough for arthritic fingers to grip (also easy to place the gauges in a specific order for your project). All in All, I thought it was well made and with minimal cleaning, should last decades.

The Feeler Gauge is light and compact ... good addition to my vehicle tool box. Numbering on the individual blades is clear, and offers a wide gauge range in both English and Metric. The holding screw is easily adjustable, so once a blade is selected, the screw can be tightened down to ensure the blade is available for use. I would recommend the Feeler Gauge for DYI shop use ... good value for the unit.

got this for my husband who does all the repair work on our cars in a family of 5, his old feeler gauge was more than 40 years old, so figured it was worn out, got this for him as a surprise. He really likes it, says it is easy t use and well made and that when trying to gap sparks plugs on cars, mowers, and other equipment it will work fine, was very happy with it sine it is lawn mowing season and he can use it on all our gas powered equipment

Some years back, we had a guy at FLIPz that could tell the thickness of a piece of metal just by looking at it. We called it "micrometer eyeballs" ... and he was right more often than not! Since he's no longer here, we need something perhaps more reliable, a bit less costly and whole lot more portable. These gauges are exactly as you would expect them to be and exactly the tool you need from time to time to compare and measure things. It's the kind of tool that gets thrown into your tool bag and forgotten ... until you need it ... and there it is. If you don't have one of these, get one. If you have one that's missing a part, toss it and get a new one.If you have one that's rusty ... get a new one. Whatever your reason, this is one of those little tools that you should have and this is a very good one to chose.

This Gearwrench feeler gauge is replacing a 35 year old one that has definitely seen better days! This one has 15 leaves, and a small ruler, which I thought was a nice touch. The numbers are very easy to read as well. I also like the thumb-nut for tightening it. It's definitely much nicer than my old one. This will come in real handy for setting the gaps on my car spark plugs! Thanks Gearwrench, and Home Depot!
