If you are going to use the SS Tool Kit Method (without adding in a set of feeler gauges), just how accurate will the measurements be. Then there is repeatability (especially with this method). It is a touch and feel measurement.
Yes it is not 'quantified' as would feeler gauges or dial gauges would be.
However touch and feel is, IMO, good enough since that is what will reveal any error in the end product(the work pieces).
IIRC it has been determined that touch can detect 0.001".
In any event I consider it good enough even though there are
ways of contaminating the procedure.
I think the reason for for these 'discussions' is that some are over enthusiastic over gadgetry that will lead to quantifiable(figure of merit?) results.
