I thought that it was spelled "gauge" not "gage". That is the way I learned it.

Dave, there is an explanation of the origins of the Gauge/Gage spelling. Gordon Chappell is an excellent historian. I have a number of his books.
I once heard a saying that Americans and the British are separated not by the Atlantic but by a use of a common language.

Ok. Like "color" and "colour", "center" and "centre", "labor" and "labour", etc, etc.
