Rick, ol' buddy. How'd you know? I'm sorting a PILE of unmarked hardware; all-thread, nuts, wheel / bearing puller studs, related bolts. Of course not just coarse and fine, but mix of US and metric. Not to mention some are cut threads, others are rolled....Like I said, a pile, probably 6-800+: tedious with a capital WTH. This split nut gauge will be a serious improvement compared to monkeying with pitch gauges/ caliper or endless sampling with hex nuts. Few are 1/2" or 13mm, most are larger, making differentiation iffy. Understand splitting them equally, to gain twofers. Immediate thought is cut via narrow slotting cutter/ saw to have largest size just under half diameter, not wanting to engage too firmly on higher grade material, as all-thread can be Grade 2ish, where pullers get B grade tolerances. Or, send airfare and offer a drafting stool...?
