    Hmm ... feeler gauges, eh? Sounds a bit like a s*x toy (kidding).

    The idea of stacking them had never occurred to me. I shall buy a set ASAP and give it a try. Thanks!!

    No worries. I've not been to Oahu, so not sure what shops are there, but any hardware store or auto-parts store here in NJ usually has them, and likely Harbor Freight and Northern Tool have them cheaper than Stewmac online, and of course there is always Amazon and eBay...

    Try the paper string height gauge. I tried it and it worked fine for me. http://youtu.be/ysNByKoB5tE
