Electronic Digital Calipers These dimensional measuring tools will perform inside, outside, and depth measurements to half a thousandth or 0.0005” accuracy.

Standard Micrometers a standard outside micrometer consists of a frame in the shape of the letter G: on one side of the frame is a fixed anvil and on the other is a spindle assembly.

Metric Micrometers all metric micrometer have a scale that reads 25 mm and, from the zero measurement when the spindle contacts the anvil, must be turned through 50 rotations.
