You can check the internal alignment of your Fit-Up with the HI-LO Gauge
Four quick steps to check internal alignment:
Unlock the retaining screw and press the gauge legs beyond the barrel.
Insert the legs (wires) into the root gap space of the two pieces of pipe to be fitted. Turn the gauge 90 degrees, being careful to apply a constant back pressure to the barrel.
Hold the gauge as square as possible with the fitting to obtain an accurate reading. Lock the retaining screw. Reverse the 90 degree turn and remove the gauge. You're now ready to read the increment opposite the red line.
When the red line aligns with the 1/32" increment, you have a good internal alignment and fit-up. Misalignments can be determined.
