English term or phrase: gage
Raise or lower the front of the deck as necessary until the gage to the tip of the blade measures 3.2 mm (.13 in.) less than the side to side blade tip measurement.

I've also come across the term "gage wheel" which I'm not sure how to translate.

Tacksam för hjälp!

Skrivs också 'gauge'. Industriteknisk Ordbok anger 'gage' = mätdon, mätare resp. 'gauge' = justera, kaliber, mätare, mätinstrument, mätklocka, ritningsmått (verktyg), standardmått, tolk. 'gage with spherical ends' = sfärisk pinntolk. För att mäta så exakt som 3,2 mm behöver man ett bladmått. Det kan vara orsaken till att man använder 'gage' här.

När det gäller 'gage wheel' finns det en diskussion om sådana i ref. 1. Dessa kallas också 'anti-scalp wheel', dvs. hjul som förhindrar att man "skalperar" ojämnheter i gräsmattan.

Partner kallar dem för 'avståndshjul' enligt ref. 2.
