FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Can I personalize it and put my name & contact info on it?

Yes. I need to know the spelling and your preferred font. Also, I could make a few examples for you to choose from. I do impressively beautiful full-color photos with the plastic and powder-coat versions.

The tick line is not exactly at the corner of the nut. Is something off?

No. This is normal. The nuts are undersized. Example: A 2" nut can be 1-15/16" across flats and still be called a 2" nut. It needs to be smaller to make it easy to install and remove a socket or wrench. 2" is the nominal size and 1-15/16" is the actual size.

Is the tick line on the Heavy Hex Gauge the actual size indicated?

Yes. The tick line on the Heavy Hex Gauge® is the actual size. Remember, the nuts are undersized. Think of the tick line as a, "Not to exceed" line. Since the nut is sure to be smaller than 2", think of it as a range. If the corner exceeds the 2" line, You should be looking for a 2-3/16" socket or wrench.

Why not show every 16th like a ruler?

You want to find the ASME B18.2.2 Standard size because that is what you will find on the tool crib shelf. or your tool rental company's bin. Sure they could make a 1-15/16" hydraulic torque link but that is expensive and it would be a very tight fit. You need a 2" tool in this example.

Can I put a picture on it?

Yes. The best process for beautiful full-color photos is the metal powder-coat version. You can buy these in any quantity. Just send me the photo and I'll mock it up for you.
