Pin Gauges

I've been to tool sales, shop closeouts, flea markets and the like and I rarely see pin gauges. Lots of mikes, calipers, scales, etc. but rarely (actually one set and it was already sold) pin gauges.

Hit them ALL! NEVER seen a set of pin gauges!

I also got the big set while fighting with a couple of wheel guns. Now having gone to the dark side messing with the 17 and 20 rifles, I find myself making some things I could really use the small set for.

On occasion and with the smaller diameters (under .250), you can get an individual drill blank cheaper than an individual gage pin.
