Any fixed cutter bit should be ring gauged prior to running in the hole.
4 Stabilizers should also be calipered or gauged to verify they meet API-approved outside dimension tolerances as shown in the following table. Fixed cutter bits should not be larger than the nominal diameter. API Fixed Cutter Bit Tolerances BIT SIZE FIXED CUTTER BIT. (IN.) TOLERANCE (IN.) 6-3/4 and Smaller to + 6-25/32 to 9 to + 9-1/32 to 13-3/4 to + 13-25/32 to 17-1/2 to + 17-17/32 and Larger to + A no go gauge is used to ensure a bit is not smaller than allowed and, as the name implies, it should not go or slip down the entire length of the bit. A go gauge ensures a bit is not larger than allowed and should slip down the entire bit.
