Color Gauges?

Does anyone have recommendations on a good color gauge, and where to get one? Amos Advantage does not carry them, though they advertise lamps that help show colors properly.

The choice of a colour gauge greatly depends on which main catalogue you are working with.

If you are working with MICHEL, then the MICHEL Farbenführer is the colour chart you need. With SG then the SG stamp colour key, and so on. For example, if you are mainly working with SCOTT, then the Michel Farbenführer will be quite useless.

I do have the Michel Farbenführer. Nevertheless I do not rely on it, it is just an additional tool, and a limited one (due to the nature of printing and inks).

I think the important point for a collector is to know for which purpose he might need such a tool.
