I have a fowler IP54 outside caliper micrometer 7-8" that is zeroed out. There are only 2 keys, a mm/in and zero. How do I reset to have it read 7.0 at 7.0?


Generally, micrometers are "zeroed" to a standard -- an object of a known specific length or diameter. If you have placed a 7-inch standard in the micrometer and brought the spindle into proper contact with that standard, and then zeroed the micrometer at that point, it will be properly set to seven inches. Standard micrometer travel is only one inch, and only that range is usually displayed. The user must then add the standard length to the face display or thimble reading to get the "developed" measurement.

How to reset depth micrometers , any style , easiest method for Mitutoyo line


The nut on the end of each rod is for calibrations. On a clean flat surface check your reading at "0"and see if adjustment is needed either left or right on the nut for getting before zero or after zero readings. Adjust the nut as little as possible and re check for zero multiple times because the nut is sensitive. hope this helps.

I lost my owner's manual and need to know how to reset the micrometer to zero


This is based on an old Brown & Sharp guide book. 1. Carefully clean the measuring surface by pulling a piece of soft paper between the surfaces while the anvil and spindle are in light contact with it. 2. with the anvil and spindle apart, unlock cap with spanner wrench (supplied with unit), then tighten cap lightly with fingers to bring slight tension between thimble and spindle. 3. Bring anvil and spindle together by turning SPINDLE and set zero line on thimble to coincide with line on barrel. 4. Move spindle away from anvil by turning SPINDLE, NOT by turning thimble. 5. Holding thimble only, tighten cap with fingers. Do Not Touch Frame. Lock cap with wrench, still holding thimble only, and adjustment is complete. NOTE: Check zero setting after adjustment is made. Hope this helps

I need a replacement thimble lock for a mitutoyo 6-12" outside micrometer(104-138 s/n#1080588).


i image the 6 - 12" is a fairly expensive set. you could buy the 0-1" which has the same thimble lock. i have one at home. and switch them out. can be bought $100 or less brand new. or search for an ebay bargain.ive never heard of the thimble lock go missing or break before. its doubtful mititoyo supplies replacement parts for mics.

The locking nut on my micrometer does not lock anymore, can i fix this?


yes. Just remove the screw in the lock, lift the lock arm off its shaft, and reposition at different angle. (put to lock, take off without turning, and set back on at unlocked position...may ned adjusting)

good luck

How to reset Mitutoyo 314-351 "V" anvil micrometer. It should not read "0" when turned all the way in.


In order to reset the zero point for your specific micrometer, you will need to have a standard set of pre-set dimensional pin(s). You can check the attached link (page 71 of the Mitotoyo catalog) for the information you need). I guess you could try to find or make a pin with the same dimensions as those noted on the catalog page, but if you're using this in a manufacturing setting, you might have no choice but to purchase a set of gauges for calibrating your micrometer.

The only other option is to contact the manufacturer for an alternative method, but I doubt they'll be able to provide any alternative, as precision setting of the zero point is required for accurate readings with this specialty micrometer.

Does conventional micrometer use to measure radial runout


No...
that type of hand tool is to be used on items that are idle.

Serious injury and product damage can occur if an attempt is made to clamp this tool on to a moving part.

It would seem that a dial indicator might be the tool of choice for you.

Good luck

Missing Thimble screw


You can most likely get one at a clock repair shop if Mitutoyo won't help you out.
