You friendly auto parts store should have them or you can order a factory style maximum/minimum headspace gauge from Brownells to help out.

I bought my feeler gauges decades ago from a discount auto parts store. As long as you don't bend them, tear them, or let them rust, they last forever.

If you want the BEST quality set of Feeler Gauges you can buy at an incredibly cheap price, do a search for Starrett Feeler Gauge on ebay! Brown & Sharpe are excellent as well. Chances are you can get them for about the same price as a new Chinese set and the Starrett and Brown & Sharpe are heads and tails the best quality! Why buy Chinese junk for the same as you can get made in USA vintage quality!?
