Gauges and Feeler Gauges

Here at Bridge Tools you will find a host of gauges available that are specifically suited to carry out certain tasks.

A feeler gauge is an incredibly important and useful tool and it's for this reason that it's so commonly seen in toolboxes. The feeler gauge is used to 'feel' the distance between two pieces of metal, for example if a certain amount of clearance is required. As a result the feeler gauge is often exclusively used for work on engines and engine components by mechanics or amateurs.

Some of the engine tasks that a feeler gauge will definitely come in useful for include measuring spark plug gaps and the ring end gap on a piston ring. Having the right distance between the two ends of a piston ring is essential, too close and the ring and cylinder wall can be damaged and if the distance is too far then the sealing will not be optimal. Using a feeler gauge set to assess the distance between the two piston ring ends, then comparing the gauge which you found best fit to the engine manufacturers guidelines will ensure your piston rings are fitted correctly. This is just one engine task that the feeler gauge is perfectly suited too.

Feeler gauges are constructed of thin metal in varying thicknesses. The thinness of a feeler gauge is crucial to its use in that the user must be able to feel any friction that the gauge experiences when measuring a gap. The right sized gap is attained only when the gauge will move freely between the sides of the gap whilst continuing to rub against the two surfaces.
