A measure of lost, worn and/or broken cutting structure.
Linear Scale: 0-8
0 - No lost, worn and/or broken cutting structure
8 - All of cutting structure lost, worn and/or broken
  (Measure in fractions of an inch)
I - In Gauge

FIXED CUTTER BITS - RING GAUGING

Any fixed cutter bit should be ring gauged prior to running in the hole. 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.

6-3/4 and Smaller -0.015 to +0.00  
6-25/32 to 9 -0.020 to +0.00  
9-1/32 to 13-3/4 -0.030 to +0.00  
13-25/32 to 17-1/2 -0.045 to +0.00  
17-17/32 and Larger -0.063 to +0.00  
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.
