You can use any automotive feeler gauge. The metric specs have a standard equivalent.

To convert metric to standard just take the metric mesurment and times it by .03937 to get standard.
To convert standard to metric just take the standard mesurment if it is in thousands, which it should be and times it by 25.4

<font color="navy">Not to be picky but, you must multipy the standard measurement by 25.4001 to get the most accurate measurement. Posted Image Yes, a standard feeler gauge works just fine.

1 inch = 25.4 mm EXACTLY (only exact conversion factor).

Now get back to your homework. Posted Image

<font color="navy">Alright then YZMann, my Drafting book must be wrong.
After doing a quick search on the net, it seems the only value that I can find 25.4, not 25.4001. My book must be incorect with that figure.

I'm in 1st hour right now YZmann, working hard on the school web and reviewing some "school related" web sites. School has been rough so far, lots of homework and little time to play. Hopefully we'll be able to get up there soon(this weekend?) to try out that nice track that I know you have been working on. Right? Posted Image

5 more minutes to the bell, got to go. C ya soon.

Sorry for being picky, looks like MY figures may be incorrect. I doubt 1/10,000th will make a big difference, but accuracy is always good. Good Luck

Just as a second reference, my calculator (TI-85) converts one inch to 25.4 mm.
