How to replace a damaged feeler
|Depending on the specification of the feeler gauge a locking device may permit individual leaves to be removed for single use or replacement.|
|A leaf can only be replaced if a feeler gauge has an unscrewable locking device, a feature associated with high end gauges.|
|Simply unscrew the nut, removing old leaves by lifting them from the central notch.
Add new leaves as required, making sure the leaves are replaced in the correct size order.
|You should only use replacement leaves specified for your gauge model (identifiable by brand or model number).
If leaves are not compatible the set will not reassemble correctly.
|Re-tightening the screw sufficiently to allow blades to fold away and stay in place.|
