Product Description

The Brown & Sharpe TESA Etalon dial caliper has an accuracy of 0.001", a 1.25" diameter rotating dial with a lock, is made of stainless steel, and measures in inches. The covered rack helps prevent measurement error by protecting the gear from foreign matter. Linear accuracy meets Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN) 862 standards. These calipers are for use in measuring inside dimensions (ID), outside dimensions (OD), depth, and step.

The caliper measures 0.100" per revolution of the dial. The lock screw locks the dial and holds the sliding jaw in position. Adjustable zero set allows the user to set zero at a convenient distance. The depth rod is integrated into the rack of the caliper, unlike many calipers that offer a detachable depth rod, or none at all. The hardened stainless steel components, including the bar, measuring surfaces, rack, gears, and depth rod, offer corrosion resistance, increased accuracy, and long life. Spring anti-backlash control offers increased accuracy over standard gear configurations. Backlash is the amount of clearance between mated gear teeth in the caliper controls, which prevents the gear teeth from jamming. It is undesirable to have much backlash due to the lack of precision offered by the increased amount of play between gears. Certain gear designs can minimize or eliminate backlash; spring anti-backlash systems use a spring to add a compressive force, thereby minimizing backlash.

Calipers measure the distance between two opposing sides of an object. They make inside, outside, depth, or step measurements, according to their type. Calipers are commonly used in architecture, metalworking, mechanical engineering, and machining. The simplest calipers have two legs to mark the two points and require a ruler to take the measurement. More complex calipers use two sets of jaws instead of legs and have up to two graduated scales. Vernier, dial, and digital calipers give direct and accurate readings and are functionally identical, having a calibrated scale with a fixed jaw, and another jaw with a movable pointer that slides along the scale. The vernier caliper has a scale sliding parallel to the main scale for an additional, fractional reading to improve measurement precision. The dial caliper has a circular dial with a pointer on a toothed gear rack replacing the second vernier scale. As with the vernier, this second measurement is added to the reading from the main scale to obtain the result. The digital caliper takes a differential by zeroing the display at any point along the slide, with an LCD that displays a single value in English and/or metric units.

Brown & Sharpe manufactures precision measuring equipment and metrology hand tools. The company, founded in 1833, played a key role in setting industrial standards in the United States. Brown & Sharpe was acquired by Hexagon Metrology in 2001 and is headquartered in North Kingstown, RI.

UPDATE BELOW

I have been using a variety of calipers (mostly digital) for various hobbies: handloading ammo, custom gun work, electronic device designing, guitar customizing, machine repair, and the list goes on.

I've tried to avoid the dial because of the obvious "brain fart" moment you get when reading it for the first moment (sort of how we've become used to digital clocks compared to their analog equivalents), but I have still used dials and verniers. I've always liked the conversion of Inch, mm, and fraction on high quality digital calipers, but have preferred the dependability of dials and the fact that they are not dependent on power. Dials are also impervious to EMF fields which may cause the decoder of digital calipers to be thrown off (when next to some types of fluorescent lights, as an example).

I mention the above because I've gone through many calipers. Something was always off about one or another. Not aligned right, wouldn't zero, loose mechanisms - just something would always keep them from being excellent.

This specific caliper is designed and made in Switzerland by TESA, branded Etalon, and I believe imported by Browne & Sharpe (who also makes great tools themselves). I purchased the black face with orange hand because the orange contrasts against the black face easier for reading than the alternate model with gray face and black hand.

This model includes a thumb wheel, covered gear bar, a locking alignment screw, and a locking mechanism screw. The caliper obviously takes four measurements: outside, inside, depth, and step. Don't expect instructions with it...

The quality of the housing is perfect, and reminds me closely of my custom shop Sig Sauer pistol (Swiss designed, and German made).

This caliper will always return to EXACTLY zero. Its sliding action is very smooth; it is easy to set the caliper precisely where you want it. Even approximate reading between the graduations are trustworthy. The feel is very nice, and there is no plastic on product except for the small black piece next to the metal wheel. The four points of the measuring faces are so sharp that they will easily draw blood. The depth measurement rod is accurate enough that if you extend it a bit, then push it down on a flat table, it will return to 0.000.

These words might be strong, but there are few things in the world I trust more than this caliper.
I take a lot more caliper measurements now that I have these, and I have a lot more confidence in my measurements before sending parts to be fabricated.

I received the B&S 75.116550 6" dial caliper SS Black Face yesterday, a day earlier then projected. The instrument seems to be very well made. Time will tell how well it will hold up, but I satisfied. It has the feel of a well made tool, and that's what I wanted, and that's what I paid for. Moving the jaws to measure is not a light touch, it moves with some resistance. My previous one made in China moved very easily. I'm guessing the closer tolerances in this Swiss made instrument are the reason. The black face is easy to read, and has dots between the .001" markings, very nice.

I've looked a many dial calipers, and owned more than a few. I bought this one based on previous reviews. I have to say that this is by far the highest quality dial caliper I've ever owned. It is more expensive, but it is well worth it for a precision instrument that will last a lifetime. I like non-electronic calipers - I've owned the electronic display ones and when the batteries go out the display goes blank. I know - just change the batteries, right? Buy why do I even need that when those digital displays offer no increase in accuracy over a dial?

The caliper is very nice, almost all metal construction. Only complaint is the case scratched the face of it within a week, have a piece of cotten in there to protect it for the time being. I bought my friend a starrett case and it is a really good buy for $15. Ill be getting one of those for my caliper.

I wanted to buy an American-made caliper but then learned that Brown & Sharpe had been bought out by a foreign company so this really was the closest thing to it when it comes to Calipers. I previously purchased the lower model 599-579-4 with the white dial background but it didn't have a thumb wheel like the picture showed. In my opinion a thumb wheel is a requirement on a caliper and this model has one. I had been using some cheap calipers and they constantly required zeroing out and this one goes back to zero every time--if it doesn't then you likely have something on the surface of the jaws and you need to wipe them clean. It is easy to read and is a great tool. It seems like the dial is covered in plastic, not glass, so that is a bit disappointing and I've heard some people report that it scratches. I put a thin layer of rubber down on the case where the dial face would touch to protect it. The only other thing I'd mention is that although the tips of the jaws were like needle sharp when I got it, after a few months of scribing layouts I have noticed that they have begun to wear down. This won't effect the accuracy of this precision measuring tool though.
