Interapid Test Indicator Spare Parts

Image

These parts are for recent Interapid test indicators whose model numbers begin with 312 and 312B. You will not be able to use these parts on the old 311 and 310 models. The drawings above are for the .0001" horizontal models. The parts for the .0005" indicator and the vertical models may have a slightly different appearance. Order parts for all models from the list below.

Test indicators with .001" graduations such as model 312B-20 and 312B-20V will take the same parts as the .0005" indicators. Brown & Sharpe model 7025-4 is the same as Interapid 312B-1.

Model 312B-15 and 312B-15V will take the same movement parts as the other .0001" models. The return lever is different and unique. Check the parts list carefully if ordering for these.

Select parts are available from us, as shown below. If you need other parts, please contact the manufacturer for assistance. A few rarely used parts are not included in this online list.

Among the most sought-after Interapid parts are the two movement fastening screws 105908 (item 23 on the list).

Dials: Up until recently, these dials were made of metal. Nice sturdy things, cleanly printed. New models (since 2014) have replaced these with a bright white plastic dial, still nicely printed. They are a bit thinner. But be careful: cleaning solvents may affect the plastic. Naphtha does not dissolve the plastic, but it will cause the plastic to warp if you don't dry it off promptly. Better to use a water-based cleaner if you need to soak the dials.

Screw for dial: under some conditions these little screws have an annoying habit of unscrewing themselves as a result of vibrations. Don't take it personally if this happens to you. We suggest you tighten the screws on a regular basis—perhaps each time you calibrate the indicator—so that they won't fall out and jam up the works. It's a little bit like tightening those screws on your eyeglass frames, before they fall out—probably while you're on vacation somewhere. (The manufacturer solved this problem in new models made in 2014 by simply gluing these small dial screws in place. This can make it very hard to remove them during a repair. We suggest NOT trying to remove them if the movement does not need to be disassembled.)

Horseshoe Clips used on the old Interapid 310 and 311 series indicators are no longer available.

FYI: Ball Bearing tap size M4x0.35

Up and down pressure on the contact point should be about even. This is the function of the return lever (drawing #9) and the shape of the spring. For ideal performance, the shape of this spring should mimic that of a brand new part. Often times, this spring gets bent out of shape when it is removed during a repair attempt. Refer to our repair manual for illustrations.

Crystal replacement: Interapid crystals are not user replaceable. They require a crystal press for insertion. The crystals are flat or just slightly convex, slightly over-sized and must be inserted with a crystal press. The crystal press will make them dome-shaped and this is what keeps the crystals in place. You can opt to purchase the bezel with crystal already installed (see parts list above) so that you simply remove the old bezel and screw on the new bezel with the new crystal, or you can send us the indicator with instructions to replace the crystal only. The cost is $37.

Removing the bezel: The bezel is threaded and unscrews. Hold the lower bezel plate steady with a small screw driver or pin, placed in one of the two holes, while you unscrew the bezel (see details below).

Stem attachment: If the mounting stem is bent or broken you can replace it with a bit of care. When you remove the old stem, don't lose the other parts. Unscrew #18, remove #19, tap out the bushing #22, save the washer#21 (which goes on the inside), then remove stem 111317. Reassemble in reverse order. Take a look at this short video to see how it's done.

There is no question that Amazon can offer you the best prices on almost every kind of precision measuring tool. They also offer easy no-questions-asked returns and often free shipping. The small distributor simply cannot compete. That's why we include this link so you can go directly to Amazon and see what they're offering.

Two things to consider:

  • Amazon product photos sometimes don't match the product description. It's the description that you want to pay attention to.
  • There are imitation gages on the market (specifically Mitutoyo) and you can make sure you are getting the real item by looking for the words "sold by Amazon". If it is sold by a third party, you might want to call Mitutoyo to find out if they are legitimate distributors.
