I can't seem to find the part number for a older Mitutoyo Surftest 212 probe extension cable. This is the round connector on both ends with 6 pins (not the 12 pin data output cable) so you can mount the probe on a height gauge for easy use. We had one at the old shop but I can't get a hold of anyone over there that cares to help. I figured I'd ask here and then try calling Mitutoyo for support if no one here knows. I'm also going to need to source one so if anyone has a good metrology vendor they use I'm all ears.

Thanks!

Sort of a round about way to do it, but if you don't find anything elsewhere you might try Digikey. At a minimum you could find the connectors and wire, but they may have the cable as well. Of course it won't be listed as a Mitutoyo product so you'll need to figure out what the actual standard is.

Thanks, Bob. Looks like they are long obsolete from Mitutoyo. I also reached out to my normal metrology repair vendors and they all said the same.

Time to take a look at making my own as jccaclimber suggests.
