You may have damaged these beyound what you can repair. best thing woudl be to return to Starrett to see if they can be fixed. They will advise repair charge before repairing so you can decide. digital micrometers should not be opened beyount the range.

Micrometers must be calibrated at 4 spots around the barrel and at zero and full scale to be truly accurate. You will have to send it to a calibration lab or back to Starrett for a full calibration because they will check it with gauge blocks of known length and verify the spindle and anvil surface flatness.

If you are only concerned with the zero and not as much about the full accuracy of the tool, then you can reset the zero yourself. With the mic fully closed (spindle and anvil touching), turn the barrel with the funky, half circle shaped wrench that came with the mic in the box. There is a little hole in the barrel where the nub on the wrench will fit then you just turn it until it reads zero. Good luck.

Where to find a free service - repair manual for a Yamaha sz16. That has the specifications for engine valve clearance adjustment. Valve clearances in thousands of an inch?


Clearance might be in mm micrometers. How do you know clearance needs adjustment? Google your question. Leave out the "free manual" ask about the specs for your year and model.
bet you get a better answer.

How do I shut it off


Digital micrometers with LCD displays usually do not have a power on.off feature. Older units have an "on" button only that is used to turn them back on after a predetermined time-out or period if inactivity to conserve battery capacity but newer Mitutoyo mics cannot be turned off.

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 do i find the millionth of a inch on specs in the govenor assembly on my 1972 yamaha 125


I think you have misread the spec. A millionth of an inch is not something that you can measure using normal micrometers, vernier's, feeler gauges etc. If you take an inch as 1 then a millionth is 0.000001 inches. If you have seen the word mil in the spec this actually equals 1 thousandth of an inch or 0.001 inches which is more likely. Example 5 mil = 0.005 inches, micrometers, verniers and feeler gauges can all be used to measure this dimension.

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.

What are the absolute uncertainties of a micrometer and the vernier caliper?


This depends on the original specification of the device and upon it's current condition. Mechanical gage calibration deals with this all of the time, when they calibrate these devices against known standard fixed dimension gages. These reference gages also have uncertainty as well. But in general, good quality "thousandths" inch micrometers are typically good within about 1/3 of a thousandth across their entire range. Good quality "tenths" mics in good condition are expected to be within a ten-thousandth across their range. Good luck, Al K

How do i calibrate my speedygreen 2000 broadcast spreader


You may check the calibration by using the following directions. First, adjust your micrometer setting to 2. Squeeze the trigger against the handle. The calibration line is a small, raised line embossed on the top of the spreader's shut-off plate. With the micrometer set at 2 and the trigger squeezed against the handle, the calibration line should be aligned with the back edge of the hopper opening.

To adjust the alignment, use a small wrench to turn the black calibration screw at the lower end of the control wire leading from the micrometer rate setting barrel. Adjust the screw until the calibration line and back edge of the hopper meet. If you have any difficulty checking the calibration, contact us and we will be happy to help walk you through the adjustment.

When you are not pulling on the trigger handle, the cable should be loose. When you pull on the handle, the cable becomes taut and the shutoff plate slides open.

How do I calibrate Scotts Accugreen 2000 for pounds of Fertilizer per Sqft. What do setting equal?


To adjust calibration, do the following:

1) Adjust the micrometer setting to 6.

2) Turn the spreader over.

3) Squeeze the trigger against the handle.

4) The front edge of the shutoff bar should be aligned with the calibration line engraved on the bottom of the hopper.

5) To adjust alignment, use a small wrench to turn the black calibration screw at the lower end of the control wire leading from the micrometer insert.

Note: If the hopper is missing a calibration line - with the setting at 6 they should be able to pass a 9/64" drill bit through the opening just to the right of center. (First opening to the right of the spring.)
