Feeler Gauges

About This Item

A set of 11 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.

Feeler Gauges: 6" x 1/2"
Mini Feeler Gauges: 3" x 1/2"

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.

Response from StewMac


Hi Seton,

Thank you for sharing your honest feedback with us, we genuinely appreciate that. We are sorry to hear that the Feeler Gauges did not work for you as expected. These are intended to be used for nut slot depth, which is why there are thicker sizes. If any of our products fail to meet your expectations, you are welcome to send it back for a refund, exchange, or store credit. If you can, give us a call at 1-800-848-2273 so that we can further assist you. We look forward to hearing from you.

I would suggest that one be produced from as small as 0.010 which would help with string relief as well as nut depth

These make it easy to cut nut slots to the correct depth. No guess work that is what is needed. Thanks

These gauges are superior to automotive gauges and provide accurate means to cut precision nut slots along with Stewmac's gauged nut files!

I got these to help me in making and setting up nuts that I am learning to make.
They work great, though I find it beneficial to separate them when working with them
and that is easily enough done as is putting them back together.

I like the length of these gauges for working on guitars -- better than one's that I have for auto use.
