I know that measuring jets for their actual (rather than stated/stamed) size has come up in a couple places on here, so I was curious if anyone had ever tried out this jet gauge that Scooter Center sells?

It's cheap enough that I'll be the crash test dummy and throw one in my cart for my next order, but I also wanted to see if anyone else had seen/used it.

CM - I have one of the gauges.
Trouble is - it doesn't always have the size I want.
I like to sort my jets from large to small using measures rather than the printed numbers.
It not only identifies the big misses which can throw you way off (122 marked that measures 114...) but you can also will sort subtitles - which is probably why certain 120 jets are my favorite vs other 120 jets (for example).

To aid in the sorting, I bought these: see below.
They come in 10 packs of ea. size - so I can't use all I have.
Hit me with a PM with your address and I will send you a set.

I mic the rods - then use them to test the jets.
I use this in combo with the jet tool - but the longer rods just work better in my view.
Even when two jets fit - one slips more cleanly than the other some times.
Can really measure subtitles like this and have confidence with jet size/ choose faves within a size.
