    Early harvest cigar. When I opened my box to restack my tobacco, I become tempted with my Little Dutch smell. So I decided my first cigar roll from this year grow. This is little dutch seco and one ligero leaves, Harrow Velvet for binder and wrapper. Nothing too fancy and need to increase my wrapping skill. Will smoke this tomorrow after a day rest. Tried the scrap in a cig rolling paper, and very impressed with the taste.

    It looks like about a 40 or 42 gauge. Ring gauge is defined in 64ths of an inch. So a 1 inch diameter = 64 ring; 3/4 inch diameter = 48 ring.

    If you do the math, you can calculate ring gauge with a metric ruler.

    Re: Pics of your sticks!!

    Why does it go all the way down to ring gauge 1, but doesn't go above 64?

    I guess a more intelligent question is the origin of "ring" gauge; what else is it used for. I wear a size 8 ring on my 4th finger, so it's not that kind of ring.

    I'm pretty sure this came from this forum. Knuck I think? before I stole this to my desktop I would mic in inches and divide by 0.015625.
    I just used it. That egg measured 1.57 inch so I looked at this chart and said ok, 1 = 64 and .57 is 36 so, 100 RG.
    you've never smoked a 1 RG?

    I might have, but didn't notice that I smoked it.

    I did a little searching on the history of "ring gauge," as it applies to cigars. In the process, I came across a lot of BS from otherwise reputable sites. I found no history of the term's use as applied to cigars.

    I'm going to guess that it started out as a cigar ring size--in 64ths of an inch, which was measured with a "gauge" made by drilling the different size holes in a board. The board at the factory was the "gauge" of the ring size. That would suggest that the proper terms are "ring size" for the cigar, and "ring gauge" for the measuring device. [After years of training myself to spell it "gauge" rather than "guage," it will be hard to give up using the term for the cigar.]

    In addition to the antique ring gauges, like the one you have, there are some inexpensive modern ones available.

    Less than $10: http://www.cheaphumidors.com/other/t...uge-chart.html

    I've also seen printed ring gauges consisting of black circles of the appropriate sizes.
