Fun Fact November 2, 2021.

Tool time Tuesday and I added something new to my collection.  I guess I should say I added another one to my collection.  I picked up a feeler gauge over the weekend.  I have one, but as usual when I needed it, I couldn’t lay my hands on it.  A feeler gauge is used to measure the gap or distance between two parallel surfaces, like the gap on a spark plug.  The one I have, somewhere, is round with various size wires sticking out all the way around it.  My son Mason has one that is a circle but the thickness changes around the edge of the circle.  The new one I bought is like the one my dad had and I remember using growing up.  A set of stainless steel blades of various thicknesses.  They are flexible enough that you can use more than one blade to get the thickness you need.  Like I needed to gap a spark plug at .050 but I didn’t  have a blade of that thickness, so I used the .025, the .015 and the .010 to give me the thickness I needed.  Listen to the podcast here; https://theriver953.com/lonnies-fun-fact
