Hi All
I cannot see very well and trying to detect perf 10, 10 1/2 , 11 is not making it easier.

What software do you recommend ? Ez-perf? Ez-grader also says that it will tell you perfs.
Thanks
Elisa

Hi Elisa

Here is the reply from Marios (who owns both) when I emailed him the same question in the past

Hope this helps.

EzGrader is intended for measuring the CENTERING of the stamp. It also does very simplistic perf measurement.

Ezperf is desgned specifically for measuring the perfs very accurately

Depending on your needs, you may need both programs

regards
Marios

I have something very similar to the picture, I place the gauge on the stamp and the magnifier over it, then I hold the magnifier with one hand and slide the gauge to different value

( will make a video tomorrow to show, more easy then words )

Or you could try this little online tool I wrote: https://www.stampcollectingblog.com...ation-gauge/

Here's a short 'getting started' video to show how it functions:

All you need is somewhat recent web-browser and a scanner.
