    yes...there is a cheater method.

    We have a couple of older B&S/Tesa Hite Gages in our QC lab. the calibration standard consists a cylinder, as if the top third was sliced clean through and rotated so it was offset. (I'll try and add a photo) In our case, we hit F2 on our control pad...bounce the ball probe once on top of the bottom section, then twice underneath the top section and then once more on the bottom section. And that tells the hite gage what diamter the ball is.

    if someone swipes the standard for some reason to use in another area of the shop where we have a Starrett height gage, I have just taken two gage blocks and wrung them together and then offset one slightly. Works the same. bounce the probe on top surfae of the bottom one, twice underneath the top one, and once again on the bottom. 1-2-3 blocks even work if that's what is within arms reach for me. In either case with either the gage blocks or 1-2-3 blocks, just keep a firm hand on blocks when they are stacked so they don't yield when bouncing the probe off the underside of the block on top.

    Not sure if the newer models calibrate the same way..but if they still operate on the same principles it still might work.

    Yes, the same principal is still used to calibrate your probe. We have one for each of our height gages, newest one is just a few months old. img_20190520_142454549.jpg

    Perfect! Thank you for the reply on an old thread guys. You wouldn't happen to have a manual would you? I'm not exactly sure which model or the age of the gauge. I will include a picture as that may help determine the model/age as it seems they have changed colors at some point. Thanks again brothers.

    Cheers!

If this can be worked around what is needed to make this happen?
    Does anyone have a manual for the micro-hite 600?
    Thank you in advance.
    Cheers!

    James,
    As long as the accuracy of your work around setting master is w/in 0.000020" it should accept it. You will have to enter the size that you use in the config screen.It is probably set for 0.2500 You can use rung gage blocks. I can't attach the user manual.Too big.
    If you go to tesatechnology.com you should be able to download it.
    Best Regards
    Doug
