Pretty Good Tool
By Andrew W.
This is a reasonably high quality tool. It's probably not as nice as the Starrett gauges, but it's nicely made and will do the same thing at 1/5 the price. Unfortunately, it's made in India and not the U.S., but at least it wasn't made in China. As the description notes, it has 52 leaves in the following inch sizes: 4, 4.5, 5, 5.5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 11.5, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60, 62, 64, 66, 68, 70, 72, 74, 76, 78, 80, 82, and 84 tpi. With all these leaves it's 11/16 in. thick. Kudos to Woodstock for including all the standard NC, NF, and NS sizes. Not all screw pitch gauges do, even the higher priced ones. I find it odd, however, that more than half of the leaves are for measuring threads which are not produced commercially and may never have been produced commercially. Perhaps there's a whole custom thread subculture of which I'm unaware. Perhaps I just don't know enough about threads. At any rate, the threads you're most likely to need are represented, and you can ignore the rest. The smaller threads require a magnifying glass to see, unless your eyes are a whole lot better than mine. My only real complaint, and my reason for awarding 4 stars rather than 5, is that the locking or tension knobs (actually they're screw heads) are made of plastic, and what appears to be a brittle plastic at that. They can be replaced, however. All in all, this item is well worth its small price.

does the job
The build quality is reasonable for the price. You need a magnifying lens to use the smaller gauges which is to be expected. The unit arrived quite oily which could be good or bad depending on storage needs or if you want to keep your hands and fine parts clean. The range of tread counts is impressive most of which I will never need but for the price why not have them just in case.
