I wouln't do it, you will strip the rack & gears. But if you must, a 10 pound hammer would make short work of it.

I have p# 505 645 50 . when i slide to open it feels like there is somthing caught in the teeth of the rack. how do i remove the dial assy?

Don't take it apart just get a toothbrush or small fine wire brush and clean out the teeth.Use an air gun to blow out behind the dial as well but only on the frame and not the dial part itself. Also check to make sure that the locking mechanism is loose enough as this will cause it to feel like it is jamming.

The face on my dial calipers is turned 90 degrees to match up to 0. How do I adjust it to be correct and readabel?

There should be a small set screw you can loosen by hand and adjust the face of the dial to zero with the jaws closed....this is typical of most allows you to zero the dial on a given thickness of material and only read variations based on that thickness.
Take care.

How do you rezero a 505-637 mitutoyo dial caliper

Fully close the caliper. The pointer should be pointing about straight up or close to it. Losen the knurled screw which is located on the circumference near the bottom. Now grab the dial and turn until the zero lines up with the needle. Re-tighten the knurled screw.

I zero my caliper and go out an inch and then close and it is rea

The dial and needle are not aligned properly. I have several calipers (all vernier) which were past down to me from my father. Some are almost 75 years old and still measure +/- 1000th! I'd go out and get a good old fashioned caliper.

Dial calipers .06 off from zero

With the caliper set to zero, you must turn the dial body to set it to zero. This should be done every time before the caliper is used.
