Product Details

196 & 196M Universal Plunger Dial Indicators

Our 196 Indicator is one of the most versatile indicators available … and it is the “granddaddy” of them all.
Over the years this tool has been improved by methods and materials, but the basic design is unchanged. The
design has withstood the test of time and beaten all challengers

While there is a need for indicators with finer graduations, such as our 708 Indicators, this indicator with graduations to .001” and 0.02mm will handle by far the majority of jobs. Shank diameter is 1/4” (6.3mm).
For full use, the operator first chooses the proper contact from the three hardened contact points that come with each model. Then the contact should be brought against the work with enough pressure to give the hand one full turn. Set the hand at zero by rotating the dial with the knurled bezel. This provides one full rotation of the hand both to the right and left of zero, showing a rise or drop in the work and the amount of that variation.
