A friend just bought one, with the pouch, and would like to know out what it might be worth.
It is a lot like this one (mine), it, and the pouch are intact but could use a cleaning.
He has a hard time with computers, and sent me his via whatsapp.
Suggestions, or interest, please pm me, or post.
Thank you.

Regards, Alberto

I also have one of these. Never did figure out how it works, In my mind seems to be faster adding and subtracting shims. It would be nice to know what it is worth. Came with the holding fixture, dial indicator and white shim box. The combo has to be worth a shiny new silver dollar?

@Jim G showed this device to me, I believe he said there was also an AR slide rule needed to use it?

Its not hard to use. The directions are on the back in 4 different languages. One of them being english.

You have to have tool C.6.0168 to measure the valve clearance to use the tool.

There a lot of info in the second link on the tool and the wiz wheel.

As to what it might be worth.

I paid 12.00 for mine from Alfa 25 years ago.

The couple I've seen on ebay have gone for 300 to 400 and one went for a lot more.

They are rare and rarely come up for sale.

I wouldn't mind having a spare.

There is also one of these for sale on ebay.

Way over priced. Usually sell in the 200 to 350 depending on condition.

If I enquired about making more, would there be interest?

Someone has already shown desire for it, so he's 1st on line.

My friend is sending the calculator to me to put it up for sale.
In all fairness, I need to send photos to 1st in line. If he wants it
it is gone, if he refuses it, then I will advise.

Probably next week I will receive it.

Thank you for looking.
Regards, Alberto

As you can see in this thread a lot of people wanted one. For Sale - Alfa Special Tool C.6.0168 Feeler Gauge for...

I looked into having them made here. But it was going to cost me about 4000.00 for a run. These would have been made exactly like the original. But I also had to give them the original to take apart to do the art work. With no hope that the original would survive.

Well Jim, one of the advantages of where I live, is the potential
for small runs, as any business is better than no business.
When I receive my friend's wheel (as mine is in Cali.)
I will take it to have an idea of the willing / able to replicate.
Will post results.
Regards, Alberto
