Dial Indicator Contact Points - In General

Q & A

 

Q: Do we need to calibrate the dial indicator after changing contact points?

  • Unlike test indicators, you do not need to calibrate the dial indicator. The size, length or shape of the contact point has no effect on the indicator's accuracy. You will, of course, have to reset to zero but you would do this as a matter of course anyway.
