For Mitutoyo Series 513-400 manufactured between 1997 and 2016
We shall begin by examining the Mitutoyo indicator to see if it is worth repairing. The most common reasons why these indicators come in for repair:
Mitutoyo has changed the design and construction of its indicators many times since the 1960s. You are not likely to find spare parts for models made prior to 1997.
➡ Before you invest any time in a repair attempt, make sure you won’t need any obsolete parts.
Second generation models (1997 to 2016) rarely need more than a cleaning and a new bezel/crystal assembly. Even one additional part won’t break the bank.
The following models are covered in this repair manual. This also includes models with -01 or -06 suffixes.
513-402, 513-403, 513-412, 513-462, 513-463, 513-442, 513-443, 513-446 513-452, 513-453, 513-401, 513-404, 513-405, 513-414, 513-415, 513-424 513-474, 513-464, 513-465, 513-466, 513-425, 513-426, 513-444, 513-445 513-454, 513-455
➡ This repair manual does not cover models ending in -10 or -16 which began production in 2017.
For a successful repair, start at the beginning and follow all the steps in this book. Do not jump to any single conclusion. You will probably be disappointed with the results.
