Dropped starrett 2-3 micrometer now they are off by .005 at 2'' they read 1.995 I know you can adjust the thimble but that would put them reading in an awkward position, I'm at the point of just short of pressing them just to get that .005. Any suggestions?

There is a small spanner tool that should have come with your micrometer to adjust it. It doesnt change anthing but the calibration.

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 fix E-05 error on a micrometer?


On the older ones, it means you overrode its ability to keep up with movement of the slide. Either you moved the slide too fast, or it has water, oil, or dirt on it. Reset by turning it off and on. Clean the scale first and wipe with a VERY lightly oiled rag.
But that reading looked like this: E--e5. If yours says Err 05, it's probably a newer one. In that case, call Mitutoyo to find out: 1--888-648- 8869.

How do I calibrate a Starrett model 449 depth micrometer?


Try the starrett web site. You can chat with them there about it. The adjustments are fair easy to do.

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

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

Micrometers out of calibration


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.

Checking level accuracy


You do not need to replace it. If it does not read the same when you reverse it, on one end there are a nut over and under the tube and plug assembly. Adjust those up or down until it reads the same.
