Default Grain mill feeler gauges?

Can anyone suggest a set of feeler gauges they use for adjusting their grain mill? I have been looking but can't seem to locate the size range. They are mostly all to small.

I got mine at pep boys. They were all too small but you can use 2 that are right next to each other to get pretty close. I got one of the 25 or 25 blade ones.

.018+.019 = .037
.019+.020 = .039

So you can't get the .038 everyone's always spouting out. But I figure 1/1000th off won't hurt!

You can get .038. It is .018 and .020. Although these are not right next to each other, they are close enough to get .038 without bending the gauges.
