    Remember that the effective range of bore measurement can be increased significantly by using pin gauges three at a time...

    Soddy circles and plug gages

    It's all done with Soddy circles. Brits will note that that is "Soddy" and not "sodding" ;-)

    I have 81 block set and small pin gauges, I wish i could afford to get a ring gauge set....it can be hard to get the size you need at a good price.
