    pj,

    I appreciate your thoughts. Good luck. You may also like the Starret cross test machinist level. Model number is 98. Mine is a 6" model #97. They are the same except mine is much older and discontinued.

    That looks interesting and I'll probably order at the beginning of the month. Your help as always is more valuable than I could pay for and I appreciate you keeping me in mind.

    Thanks,

    hankj,

    Starrett makes a nice set of dial calipers for right at $100.00. Model number is 120A-6.

    PJ, you might fine the Starrett Cross Test Level and Plumb quite useful: Aluminum Trolleys for instance??? Check their website for model NO. 134 ort EDP number 50569.

    pjs,

    Just ordered a new one from mscdirect.com today. Stainless, with a dial and a lock. It HAS to be an improvement over these beat up General fiberglass ones I've got now.

    Be well.

    Some tools are needed I bought a steel caliper for less than $10 at Harbor freight, works great for the weld shop. If I need finer my machinist has much better micrometers.
    Be cool,

    Q,

    Yeah, you're right. It's material dependent, but with a spread of .005, it's moot point for fixing this horse trailer I have sitting in my yard!

    My delimma was the cheap plastic vernier calipers that I have don't necessarily speak the truth, and I needed to know what I oughtta be seein'.

    Be well.

    OK...Which of those three are correct?? Look at 24 gage for example they are all different. I wonder if each chart is for material. I know the chart I use has 3 different thicknesses based on materials. For example, 24 gage on my chart has .024(steel), .025(Stainless), and .020(aluminum).

    For "guestimating" purposes I always remember that 11 gauge is 1/8", 16 gauge is 1/16" and 22 gauge is 1/32"

    Sheet goods conversion chart - guage to thousandths

    Can anyone feed me a link, post, or e-mail me a conversion chart that will tell me the conversion for sheet steel from guage to .oo1"?? I'd sure appreciate it.

    Be well.
