Expert woodworker Bill Perry regards this as an essential tool:
"What’s the best thing about the Wet Mil Gauge? It only costs about three bucks. How can you lose? And while the gauge may look about as impressive as a plastic drill gauge giveaway from a tool show, it’s really a precision instrument and should be treated like one. Fortunately, about all that means is wiping it clean after use and protecting it from bangs and knocks so the one mil difference from one tooth to the next stays accurate." He has plenty more advice and information about the Wet Mil Gauge here.
Press the gauge into your coating while wet. The true film thickness lies between the tooth that has some application on it and the tooth that does not.
