  • Thread plug gauges are some of the most popular gauges to be used in the history of tools. This gauge is used to find the accurate size or dimension of the nut. The point is that the “Go-Gauge” should go inside the nut without any problem and much twists. Other than this, the “No-Go Gauge” should enter the nut without many rotations, the maximum number of times it can be rotated is two times.
