since when is measuring the manidold harder than the gasket we must have different definitions of measure or you dont have the tools, or don't trust yourself these are all valid points. Not getting snippy or anything just trying to understand where you are comming from.

Magna. I'm using some shitty CMM. - Extreme CMM http://www.burtonprecision.com/cmm-sales.htm

Not being cocky or anything.
I can measure everything for you if you want, it's just too time consuming. If you want anything measured on it, it would cost you around $170-200/hour. - minimum rate rate is 1hour though.

The thickness increases as the ID of the pipe increases, but 1.5" sch 40 ss pipe fittings are 0.145" thick
