How many use this one

Great gadget, consistent and repeatable gaps. Open the manufactured gap up a few thousands, then set.

Scalable: .020 - .080

Never seen that before... I use the Champion gapping disc with tapered edge, but not the rest... Figured there was prolly something more elaborate for professionals to use that do a ton of gapping...

I can say it takes some getting use to, was not thrilled at first .

The secret is to open the gap, let the tool set it. It really does take the guess work out. Wire gauge allows variances, from one to another, cause it depends on the feel . But it's all about the user in the end ..
