Vernier scale in metric units for taking precise outside diameter (OD) measurements
Ratchet-stop mechanism helps provide uniform pressure for precise, repeatable measurement
Satin chrome finish on thimble and sleeve helps resist rust and reduce glare
Spindle and anvil locks to hold measurements in place
The Mitutoyo 124 series gear tooth micrometer has a vernier scale in metric units for taking precise outside diameter (OD) measurements, and is for use with interchangeable ball-tipped anvil and spindle faces for measuring over-pin diameter of gears (sold separately). It also has a ratchet-stop mechanism for uniform pressure during adjustment.
The micrometer’s frame has a baked enamel finish for protection and durability. The vernier scale on the thimble and sleeve is graduated to 0.01mm, and has a satin chrome rust- and glare-resistant finish. Separate spindle and anvil locks help provide secure locking of the measurement position. The micrometer comes with a fitted case for storage.
Micrometers are precision measuring instruments that use a calibrated screw to measure small distances. These measurements are translated into large rotations of the screw that are then able to be read from a scale or a dial. Micrometers are typically used in manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering. There are three types of micrometer: outside, inside, and depth. Outside micrometers may also be called micrometer calipers, and are used to measure the length, width, or outside diameter of an object. Inside micrometers are typically used to measure interior diameter, as in a hole. Depth micrometers measure the height, or depth, of any shape that has a step, groove, or slot.
Mitutoyo manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology equipment, and systems. The company was founded in Tokyo in 1934 and formed Mitutoyo America Corporation in 1963, which is headquartered in Aurora, IL.
