Accurately machined from solid brass. The Axminster Woodworker's Gauge Block Set consists of six 25mm diameter blocks with heights of 16, 8, 4, 2, 1.5 and 1mm. Used singly or in various combinations, these give an accurate guide from 1 to 32.5mm (except 32mm). Used for setting other gauges, testing widths of grooves, mortices and so on or fences to fine tolerances. This is another of those 'how did I ever manage without it' tools. Supplied in a velvet lined presentation box to keep it well out of harm's way when not in use.

shimsHi, thank you for your excellent service, I too have difficulty getting the thick shims out, having Parkinson's does not help, so out of my spring box £3.99 I found the right one for the top three, glued them to. the Box then when you put them away the lid just presses them down, then when you open the lid they just pop up. By the way after all that tattle they are an excellent product cheers Graham

Quick and precise setting of combination squares and marking gaugesThis little set of gauge blocks are very good for setting up gauges and combination squares. Put combinations of them, like coins, on a flat Surface. Adjust a combination square or gauge to the height of the 'coins', and the measure is set.
