If you don't have one of these, you should get one. It's the classic machinist's micrometer and it has far better accuracy in the range of measuring string gauges. The now-familiar 6-inch dial or digital caliper has just enough flexibility that it can be nearly impossible to get a positive reading on a string gauge, where a thousandth can spell the difference between light an medium gauge. It takes a bit of practice to learn to read this critter, but it's a deadly accurate tool, and worth the effort. Even the least expensive do a fine job.
