Tesa Isomaster Micrometer
Inch and Metric Models



Metric 75-100 mm Isomaster model

These Swiss made Tesa micrometers are among the finest available. They have a friction sleeve which lies a bit better in the hand, making one handed operation easier for some. They also have slanted lines on the barrel and that may be a deciding factor when investing in these. Some people can't tolerate those slants. Others have found out that they're easier on the eyes. If you're not sure on this point, select another micrometer such as Etalon Series 260, made by the same manufacturer.

Models up to 4" are available with .0001" graduations. Metric models are available up to 300 mm. Notice that you'll save money by switching to metric.

Manufacturer suggestions (paraphrased): Check your Tesa micrometer periodically to see that the zero lines up. Use a gage block to verify readings.

After heavy or prolonged use, it is recommended that the micrometer be cleaned as follows: unscrew the quick-drive end cap, as well as the thimble. Clean each part with an appropriate liquid (alcohol, naphtha) and reassemble. Lightly lubricate the spindle with a high quality oil. Eliminate any play in the thread by using the supplied setting key.

A more detailed maintenance brochure comes with the micrometers.


Further information on micrometers in general, and what can go wrong, is shown on page 29. If your micrometers ever need servicing, Long Island Indicator has over 40 years of experience with Tesa micrometers.
