Most jets are marked for flow.

Size doesn't necessarily equate to flow. Holley might sell you a 72 jet that measures 71 or 73- because its actual flow is closest to a 72.

Unmarked jets can sometimes be measured using a small numbered drill bit set using the butt end, not the fluted end, obviously.

The guy selling the torch tip cleaner as a jet cleaner is doing no one a favor- using that rough tool inside a jet orifice would ruin the flow through the jet.
