- An outside micrometer often has a larger range than other types of micrometers
- An outside micromter is more affordable than the thickness gauge style micrometers which have a dial or digital face.
- An outside micrometer may work in applications in which the measurement is taken in an awkward position or that requires a reach, whereas the thickness gauges require a much more steady hand with which to take the measurement.
- A user with a larger hand span can learn to maneuver the outside micrometer with one hand.
- And if you need to have an extra hand, you can purchase an outside micrometer stand.
How do you use a digital micrometer? I "inherited" the .0005"/.01mm digital micrometer through a former manager, but never received any training and cannot find an instruction manual. Do I need to zero-out before each reading or session? What is correct way to zero-out? What is the conversion from inches or mm to pounds (i.e. I need to determine if paper is 65 lb or 80 lb). I also need to determine the gsm since the printers/manufacturers I work with in China all specify their paper in gsm (we typically use 120) and I need to verify that they are using the paper we approved.
