Product Description

The Mitutoyo 513 series dial test indicator has a tilted face, a 0.375" stem diameter, and inch measurements. The indicator has a reversible measuring direction and an adjustable contact point, and is used to measure surface variations in narrow or recessed areas. The face inclines 20 degrees from the axis of the indicator and three dovetail mounts, and can be mounted either horizontally or vertically from the front, top, or back of the indicator. It has a unified outer frame that prevents oil and water from permeating the front face, a hard frame body that provides rigidity and durability, and a clear, flat, and scratch-resistant crystal face. This dial indicator meets Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) B7533-1990. The full set includes a dial indicator, three contact points (0.039", 0.079", and 0.118" diameter), a 4mm diameter stem, two stems (0.157" and 3/8" diameter), a knurled clamp ring, a swivel clamp, a 4 inch holding bar, and a plastic storage box.

Dial readings with three digits, such as 0-10-0, signify that the indicator has a balanced dial. Dial readings with two digits, such as 0-100, indicate that the dial has a continuous dial. Balanced dials are used to read the difference from a specific surface reference point. Continuous dials are used for direct readings and usually have a larger measurement range than balanced dials. Optional features include jeweled bearings for high sensitivity and accuracy, a revolution counter to measure overall change, and a white or black face.

Dial indicators are also called dial gauges, dial calipers, and probe indicators. These precision measuring tools are used to accurately measure small linear distances and object sizes. The dial magnifies the measurement so that it can more easily be read by the human eye. Frequently used in manufacturing, laboratories, and other industrial or mechanical fields, dial indicators are used anywhere a small measurement must be found and recorded or transferred, such as checking the variation in tolerance of a workpiece. Standard dial indicators measure the displacement along the axis of the indicator. Dial test indicators are very similar to dial indicators, except that the axis of measurement is perpendicular to the axis of the indicator. Dial and dial test indicators can be analog, with a mechanical dial, or electronic, with a digital display. Some electronic models transfer the data electronically to a computer for recording and potential manipulation.

Mitutoyo manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology equipment, and systems. The company was founded in Tokyo in 1934 and formed Mitutoyo America Corporation in 1963, which is headquartered in Aurora, IL.

Part Number: 513-442TMeasurement Accuracy: +/-0.0005"Resolution: 0.0005"Range: 0-0.06" Verified Purchase
The good:

1. Very good repeatability & accuracy (but not as good as Brown & Sharpe BesTest series). Keep in mind that this dial test indicator (DTI) only reads accurately when the pointer is parallel to the measuring surface. In other words, the measuring force must be at 90 degrees from the work surface. This is the same as most DTIs except Interapid and certain Starrett models, which reads accurately when the pointer is at 12-15 degrees to the work surface. But then again, most users of DTIs are using them for comparative measurements only.
2. Tilted dial makes it easier to read.
3. Very clear/crisp markings/graduations.
4. Somewhat low measuring force (but not as low as Interapid .0005" series).
5. Long range as Interapid (.06" - better than Brown & Sharpe BesTest series but not as long as my Compac 213GLA, which has a whopping .120" range). As with all multiple-revolution DTIs, the longer the range, the less accurate they become.
6. Good craftsmanship (except the bezel).
7. 3 dovetail mounts makes it a more versatile DTI. My horizontal Compacs only have 2 of them.
8. Anti-magnetic property. Unlike Compacs, BesTests or Interapids, this indicator is truly unaffected by magnets. There was a time when the only measurement I was able to take was to stick a very strong, flat rare-earth magnet to the part and measured the part using the edge of the magnet. This Mitutoyo needle was the only one that wasn't sucked into the magnet. Interapid, BesTest and Compac needles wasn't able to do this. Seems like the needle was made out of non-magnetic metals (3 series stainless steel?)

The bad:

1. Bulky - bigger body than most Swiss-made DTIs (except vertical Compac models).
2. PLASTIC BEZEL!!!

This is a decent indicator and does get the job done on many levels, but for a professional machinist, inspector or other you might look into Interapid, Brown & Sharpe, or Starrett. Reason being as stated in another review, the "dial" is almost all plastic - plastic lens is held on with an o-ring. I know for the same reason as the other poster - burst of air. It did go back together, VERY CAREFULLY mind you, but I felt kinda burned after that incident.

Old Mitutoyo's are a metal body, so a used one would be a fine choice or spend a couple bucks more for higher quality. For the price I paid, I expected a bit more but mine is still in use and reading accurately. I will say, any indicator I purchase in the future will be of higher end from now on though.

We have some guys going to machinist school. I bought each of them one of these. They do their job. One has been replaced due to operator error. The instructor at school thinks these are the best bang for the buck.

Great indicator! I have used this at work and the .06 travel is a blessing. It's easy to read and comes with the different sized stems. Highly recommend to fellow machinist.
