Feeler gauges are used:
– To check the gap between the mating parts
– To check and set the spark plug gaps
– To set the clearance between the fixture (setting block) and the cutter/tool for machining the jobs
– To check and measure the bearing clearance, and for many other purposes where a specified clearance must be maintained.
Slip gauges are graded according to their accuracy as Grade 0, Grade I and Grade II.
Grade 0 is used in laboratories and standard room which serves as standard for periodically checking the accuracy of Grade I and Grade II gauges.
Grade I is of higher accuracy and used in inspection departments.
Grade II is intended for use in workshops during the actual production of components, tools and gauges.
