Just purchased a Fowler Digital Extended range bore gauge. A few issues: rubber buttons on the gauge stick if you press too hard, the retaining clamp knurled nut that holds the gauge onto the shaft is too close to the gauge for fingers to reach, and the flimsy "shop hardened" plastic storage case closes against the buttons on the gauge. Had to check twice the box did'nt say HF. Guess I have to decide if I want to send it back for refund or replacement. In any case, here is the main question: Since this gauge, (and most other bore gauges I've seen), covers the 1.4" to 6" inch range with a half dozen or so different extention rods, do you need a master gauge ring for each size increment? Any sources for affordable gauge rings?
