Feeler Gauges

About This Item

A set of 6" x 1/2" steel gauges that allow precision filing of nut slot depths.

Simply stack the appropriate gauges on the fingerboard, against the front edge of the string nut, and file the nut slot down to the top of the stack.

These gauges are also useful for checking string-to-fret clearances and fret slot width, for hardware installation work, and for setting up shop tools.

Gauges include .016", .018", .020", .022", .024", .026", .028", .030", .032", .034" and .040" thicknesses.

The Feeler Gauges are included in the Essential Nut Making Tool Kit, which has all the basic tools you'll need for shaping, string-spacing, slotting and fitting string nuts like a pro.

If only the sizes got small enough to check action and relief this would be perfect.

Great quality, wish there were more sizes available

This set of feeler gauges is very well made and should last forever. The sizes are clearly marked.


I do wish there were smaller sizes available. I had to order an automotive set from another dealer because I like my relief to be around .010 and these just don't do down that far.

Mandatory Item for Many Applications

This is a required adjunct to a 6" steel rule with 1/64th spacing increments. It's a "must-have" for so many contexts.
