Dial Indicator strip

I have a Mercer .002mm per division Dial Indicator which is sticky. I want to remove the face so that I can fully clean the mechanism and then lubricate both ends of all of the pivots. (I have watch oil). I have made a "Hand Puller" but the hand does not shift. What am I doing wrong? Any advice?

The indicator needles on pressure gauges are all pressed onto a tapered shaft and there is a special, very small, puller available that removes 'em in a jiffy - they often need a surprising amount of force to get them off tho'.

I was going through one of my old 'Work Tool' drawers the other day and disccovered 3 beautifully made, small 'Budenberg' pullers that I'd forgotten I had.

If you have no luck PM me and I'll pop one in the post to you.

Talk to Jenny in the repairs dept, she helped me out with the bits to repair an 0.005 Verdict finger gauge a couple of weeks ago.

She repairs all sorts of Dial gauges and Indicators and is a very helpful lady.

She'll tell you what you need...........

Cheers Barry
