Brown & Sharpe
0-1" travel dial indicators made in Germany

 

The best .001" and .0005" dial indicators for your money
(that's our opinion)
 

An inexpensive yet sturdy 1" travel indicator made by Käfer (Germany) for Brown & Sharpe. You'll be impressed by its smooth movement and solid construction. Just hold it in your hand and you can feel that there is nothing cheap about this indicator. The bezel diameter is about 2-1/4" and it comes with a lug back and 3/8" diameter stem.

Your choice of white or black dial face. If you aren't sure, we suggest you go with the white dial. We find it easier to read.

Unlike many inexpensive indicators these day, this one still has a solid metal bezel and a crystal which can be replaced without special tools. In fact, you can install a real glass crystal to replace the plastic crystal, if you want (see parts below). (Some German indicators sold by other manufacturers have plastic bezels.) This is a terrific deal for the money.

Spare parts for MB216 and MW216

 

 

These spare parts are only for current model indicators which are labeled made in Germany. Please inquire about other parts which are not listed.

Parts for gages made in England are no longer available.

Note that, because of the relatively inexpensive cost of a new indicator, repairs will not be economical. Still, if you would like to try your hand, we offer these few select parts:

You may order any part by taking note of its part number and proceeding to the price page.

* Perhaps you are working with caustic coolants which destroy the plastic found on just about every dial indicator on the market, or you have other reasons, but you can replace the plastic crystal on these indicators without any great hassles. Remove the two tolerance markers. They are split rings and can be taken out using a small pointed tool or by grabbing the tolerance tabs with small needle nosed pliers. The plastic crystal will fall out and you can lay the real glass in its place and reinsert the tolerance markers. Quite easy. Of course, this is also an easy way to replace the plastic if it gets scratched or discolored.

(For a short while, models MW217-1 and MB217-1 were made in Switzerland. The dial will say so. If that's the case, then you can use the parts list for Compac model 713A. Those models are no longer available.)

Similarly, MB216 and MW216 were once made in England. It will say so on the dial. Parts are not available to repair these.
