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.

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

I cannot install the bike seat pole into the bike

First, you need to make sure that this is the correct size seatpost. There are many different diameters of seatposts and you need to be sure this is the correct size. If you have a set of calipers or a micrometer you can measure the inside diameter of the frame and the outside diameter of the seatpost. if you don't have these tools you can take it to your local bike shop. If you are certain that this is the correct seatpost it may be that you just have some rust on the post that can be taken off with sandpaper or steel wool. Put a little anti sieze compound on the post, slip it into the frame and tighten the bolt. 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.

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.

Does conventional micrometer use to measure radial runout

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
