### 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.

### 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

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