Hey folks,

Just wondering where you get your screw size/thread pitch tools? I have a plastic one that only goes down the M6 metric size screws. I would like one that goes down to at least M3.

I found one at Lee Valley and some on Amazon, but I was surprised I couldn't find them on Princess Auto website. I also didn't find them on Canadian tire nor any of the home improvement store's websites... Rona, Lowes, Home Depot.

Here is the one I am looking at from Lee Valley:

I guess the wholesalers have too, but they seem more expensive there. Such as Fastenal, Acklands-Grainger etc.....

Thanks,

Dave

I am going to answer my own question.... :D

Not sure why Amazon wasn't showing me very many options but all of a sudden it started showing me more products so I just ordered this thing, should be fine for the few times that I need it. I know it's plastic, but I don't plan on forcing a bolt through it.

Normally, measure the diameter of the screw or hole and then measure the thread pitch. Caliper or mic for diameter, and an ism like this for the thread. https://www.amazon.ca/Stainless-Degree- ... 9795495454

The pitch gauges I have, are steel and have swinging gauge strips for matching threads. The look similar to the blade-type thickness (thousandths) gauges
but of course are shorter in length.
