How To Measure A Weymouth Bit Correctly

Question

How do I go about measuring my Weymouth mouthpiece length, thickness and shank length?

 

 

Information

There are various measurements to consider when sourcing and assessing the correct size

of bit including length, thickness, shank length and design.

 

We Say-

1) Mouthpiece Length: The measurement is taken by placing the bit on a flat surface

and pulling the rings apart so the bit is at its maximum length. The measurement is

taken along the full length of the mouthpiece from the inside edge of the cheek to

the inside edge of the opposite cheek and can be measured in inches or

centimetres.

 

2) Mouthpiece thickness: This measurement is taken at the widest part near to the

cheek just before the hole that the ring slides through. Again, if you put the bit on a

flat surface, you can slide a tape measure below this point and, if you look from

above, you can see the thickness. The most accurate way to measure the thickness

is using a set of calipers, which are widely available.

 

When sourcing a Weymouth, there are a couple of additional measurements to consider as

demonstrated in the picture below:

1) Shank Length (lower): This measurement is taken from below the mouthpiece to the

bottom of the shank (not to the bottom of the loose ring) and is generally done in

centimetres; 5cm, 7cm and 9cm are the options that are available within the Neue

Schule Collection.

2) Shank Length (upper): In the Neue Schule Collection this measurement has been

scaled according to the lower shank length of the Weymouth.
