I refuse to read the juvenile comments below about MO-MA  without a 
rebuttal.  About twelve years ago I sent all six of the original  gauges (notice

In closing, I will renew my pleading with Mark, our esteemed  leader, to 
enforce a rule stating that any bashing of vendors while naming  names will 
result in a minimum six months suspension!
