As a standard convention, every number printed on the dial of an inch-reading test indicator or dial indicator represents .001" This applies to all makes and models which are inch reading. In fact, it also applies to dials on thickness gages, dial calipers, dial bore gages, and dial micrometers.
Regardless of the dial's graduations, the numbers always indicate .001 inch
The same principle applies to all metric dials. In this case, each number will represent 0.01 mm regardless of the gage's discrimination. For example the number 10 would represent 0.10 mm and the number 90 would represent 0.90 mm.
Regardless of the dial's graduations, the numbers always indicate 0.01 mm
