Inside Micrometer Calipers (Fig. 2.122) (Metrology)

This micrometer caliper has no U-shape frame and spindle. The measuring tips are
constituted by the jaws with contact surfaces which are hardened and ground to a radius. One of
the jaws is held stationary at the end and second one moves by the movement of thimble. A locknut
is provided to check the movement of the movable jaw. This facilitates the inspection of small
internal dimensions.
