Mitutoyo test indicator
Series 513 Dial Test Indicators at bargain prices

Mitutoyo "Truetest" indicator with slanted dial and long range / multiple revolutions

ScreenShot20140624at35826PM2

Mitutoyo slanted dial test indicator with .080" diameter carbide contact point installed

These popular light weight Japanese imports have the same slanted (tilted) dial which Swiss-made Interapid indicators have been known for since the 1950's. They also make two revolutions in either direction from zero giving them a longer range than the standard indicators.

Note that a serial number and scan image is conveniently printed on the dial face.

It is important to note that, unlike the Interapid indicator, these do not require the 13 degree contact point angle when taking measurements. Keep the contact point as close to parallel to the surface of the measured piece as you possibly can.

Additionally, the dial hand (pointer) always moves in the clock-wise direction and it has a starting point just to the left of zero; about 11 o'clock. (The Interapid indicators, in comparison, have a hand that is set to 12 o'clock and the hand will move both clockwise and counterclockwise.)

A one-piece plastic bezel and crystal is easy to replace by the end-user when it's damaged. Unlike many other indicators, no special tools will be required. These indicators are accurate and respond very well.

This great starter set Includes the Mitutoyo test indicator with 20° slanted dial plus

  • 2 mm diameter (.080") carbide installed
  • one 3/8" diameter dovetail stem (removable)
  • three dove tails permanently mounted on the body
  • box
  • certificate of calibration
  • dial color: see below
  • models with the letter T at the end include a swivel clamp and 4" holding bar
  • accuracy: ±.0005" on the .0005" models
  • accuracy: ±.0002" on the .0001" models

Mitutoyo Dial Test Indicator Series 513 with one revolution

 

New for 2017: Mitutoyo test indicator with .080" diameter carbide contact point installed

These one revolution standard test indicators—without the tilted face and dialare the most popular and best selling indicators in the US. They are also a real bargain when you get right down to it.

 

New features for 2017: better scratch resistance on crystal, more durable bezel, and the proper contact point length is printed right on the dial. These new models will have the suffix -10 added to the model number. But here is our favorite new feature: the indicator consist of just 4 assemblies and if a repair is needed, you can simply buy the entire new movement, new head assembly, crystal or (even) body. You will no longer have to install gears or springs. You will still need some tools, a steady hand and mechanical know-how.

 

But, because of the low price, they could be considered "throw-away" indicators. When they break down, just toss and replace. Excellent for the factory or shop where they are used by the dozens, if not hundreds.

 

They are also a good bargain when treated with a little bit of respect although they are a poor comparison to their European counterparts, when you start to examine their construction. Yes, the bezel and crystal can be easily replaced but because they are all plastic to begin with, they will break, crack or come undone much more frequently than the sturdier, more permanent designs of other brands. Note: the manufacturer has chosen to use epoxy to keep some parts in place, including the contact point! It may be hard to unscrew your old point if you want to replace it.

  • easy to replace crystal and bezel assembly (see page 162)
  • excellent repeatability and accuracy
  • sturdy, oversized ball bearings are rarely damaged (based on repair reports)
  • serial number and scan image printed on the dial face
  • basic set includes an 3/8" diameter stem attachment
  • full set also includes .157" diameter stem attachment, swivel clamp, 4" long holding bar as well as 1 mm and 3 mm diameter carbide ball contact points. Full sets have the letter "T" after the model number.
  • optional contact points available in Ruby, Teflon or Nylon in various diameters (see page 21)
  • common spare parts are available (see page 162)
  • repair service is available by many qualified repair shops nationwide (see page 30)

 

Why do we ask you to check the Amazon price? It is no surprise that Amazon undersells just about everyone and there is no way that we can compete with them. By buying directly from Amazon you will be getting the best price, often up to 20% to 30% off list. Free shipping is sometimes included, and they offer a convenient return policy. And, if it says "sold and shipped by Amazon" you can be reasonably sure that you will get the genuine article and not one of the Chinese imitations.

How to remove the Mitutoyo bezel

IMG2078 IMG2081

It simply lifts off. It's like prying the lid off a take-away coffee cup. You will have a bit more control if you use a screw driver as shown in the photos. You will want to make sure that you do not bend or break the center pinion under the dial hand. For replacement bezels and crystals, refer to page 162.
