    Question Mauser Micrometer

    Does anyone out there know anything about adjusting Mauser micrometers? It's the type with a digital counter in the thimble. (I have pictures to post, but I keep getting "Invalid Thread" messages when I try to attach them.)
    Any ideas about how to make this right?

    Hi Eric,

    That's a known problem with the bbs software. It only happens on the initial post in a new thread.

    Submit the post, thus creating the thread, then edit that post and use the Attachment tools to add your photos.

    The Attachment function requires a thread name as a target, but until you submit the first post the thread doesn't exist, so no target.

    Eric,

    First thing is to clean your anvils by drawing a piece of good paper through them while they are lightly closed. By "good" I mean something with a bit of surface finish to it like the old cotton-bearing writing and typing papers. Not something dead polished like many of today's photo printer pages. Even newsprint would be better. You want to be able to pick up barely visible bits of gunk from the anvils.

    Your mic is only a few tenths an the high side and that may be all you need.

    If you still need to tweak the setting, I believe it's adjusted from the back (larger screwdriver slot not seen in your pix) and tiny screwdriver slot (barely visible in your pix).

    Eric,

    That is a cool looking micrometer. I have several Mauser squares and vernier calipers. The squares are really massive and nicely made. Sometimes Mauser measuring tools were imported under the "George Scherr" or "Scherr-Tumico" brand names.

    Eric, I know this is a few years on, but did you figure out how to adjust the Mauser. I have two that need adjustment.

    No, I put this one aside and let it be. I'll see if I can put my hands on it. If I am successful, I'll put my "how I did it" here.

    Hi, I'm a Bit late by a few years, but just in case anyone's still interested I have an original Mauser instruction manual which specifies how to calibrate Mauser's mechanical digital micrometers, I can write up and upload the instructions if needed

    I don't have one but still would be interested in how the repair/adjustment would be made.
    Any chance you might write a paragraph on that and post it here?

    James, there is a subforum here that is just for uploading manuals or documentation. That would be a great place to upload those instructions. Then post a new post here with a note or link to the instructions. I am sure other people now or in the future would like to know those instructions are available. Posting them in this thread wont be as easy to search for. Thanks for participating and I am sure we can help you if you are not sure about what I mentioned.

    I know you're trying to be helpful but it might help more if you mention where that subforum is and the name. I've an idea as to which one you mean but am far from certain.

    At a guess, I'd say it's this one, because it's the only one that mentions manuals and if you look in there, there's manuals.

    Yea sure, I'll write it up and do as Cblair said regarding uploading it to the manuals and documentation section and posting a link to it here.

    Please do, by all means! I still haven't done anything with this mic yet.
