With this model the accuracy is somewhat better (about ± 1.5% instead of ± 2%). But a greater improvement of reading is possible.
Accuracy of indication and fineness of divisions are in the best relationship. A bigger diameter of the micrometer indicator would allow still finer divisions, but this would not give any greater accuracy.
It is advisable when ordering to state the required working postion of the micrometer indicator (horizontal, 45°, or vertical). This should be observed especially for smaller ranges of capacity. Otherwise these models are delivered with 45% position.
