Vernier caliper maintenance and care
|After use, it is important that you check the beam of your vernier caliper for any unwanted residue that may affect the sliding motion of the vernier scale.
Apply a small drop of oil to the beam of the caliper, clean it off with a cloth and slide the vernier scale backwards and forwards a couple of times.
|Vernier calipers should be stored somewhere dry and humid-free.
Most calipers come with a protective case to keep them safe when not in use.
|You should regularly check the calibration of your caliper, to make sure that it is working correctly.|
