Feeler Gauges Good for GS

I have been looking far and wide for METRIC feeler gauges with small increments between the blades. I hate the SAE ones with metric equivalents printed on them. You always end up with weird thicknesses like .127mm.

Hornig makes a set that goes in .02mm steps. I ordered up 2 sets.

Individual sizes: 0,10 - 0,12 - 0,14 - 0,16 - 0,18 - 0,20 - 0,22 - 0,24 - 0,26 - 0,28 - 0,30 - 0,32 - 0,34 - 0,36 - 0,38 - 0,40 - 0,42 - 0,44 - 0,46 - 0,48 - 0,50

I bought them from Creative Cycle Concepts, who I have dealt with before and found to be a good place. I think they are a small outfit, so they probably appreciate our business more than the big players. No affiliation; I am just a happy customer.

There seemed to be enough interest that I posted this as its own thread. Mods, if you think that was unwarranted, do your thing and I won't whine (much).

Here are my 2 sets. They come with the blue storage pouches. What looks like moisture is a light machine oil that they come with on them.

This thread puts me in mind of my journey along Cerrillos Rd in Santa Fe looking for a feeler gauge. At three of the five auto parts stores I visited the clerk did not know what a feeler gauge is. The other two didn't have any.
