Just got my new (large and intermediate sized) radius gauge sets. They lack appropriate labeling but can be easily read with the (not supplied) caliper.
Rust proof and resistant to all cutting and cooling fluids.
Accurate within 1/8" (more or less).
Unbreakable - almost.
Easily stolen from a nearby kitchen or available at most dollar stores.

Have a happy!!

I wouldn'lt suggest equating the numbers on the 'handles' with anything relating to machinery, though. For our purposes, those numbers are meaningless.

Seems I have a rod with a 1/4 cup radius. Anyone know the metric conversion? Oh wait, here it is, in metric units its a 51.4mL radius. :D

Don't have an "other" so I'm good with the kitchen stuff. Sure could use someone to wash it up though! :p

I just use one of these. It is for filling a battery with water. I use it for every fluid in the shop. I think it is a little more heavy duty than your standard turkey baster. You can pop the bulb off the stem and rinse it out after each use. They work great.
