Hi Randy
Adjusting the extensions is accomplished by rotating the end piece in or out.
The micrometer head is more of a PITA.
Remove both of the tiny end caps and using a .0001" indicator, make both caps
identical thickness. I used some 400 grit emery cloth on a flat block. Install
the caps on the micrometer head and set it to 1.000" on the barrel. Use a set
of good mics and see which way they're off.. Now dis-assemble the head
completely except for the insert that is light press fit into the barrel. You
need to move the insert in or out to change the reading. I used a bench block
and a gage pin that fit the barrel to bump the insert. Repeat the above steps
until you get it right. It's a PITA. Once you get the head adjusted correctly
then do the extensions. Let me know how you make out.

Hi CJ, you were right about calibrating the mic head its self being a PITA
!!!, But I finally did get it ... I knew how to adjust the individual rods
but the Mic itself was a mystery. Its unlike a Starrett that you can easily
adjust. I really do appreciate the Info... Thank you my Friend

I don't know that I do, but US Patent number 1,424,383 is the key.

Enter US1424383 to Google Patents to get a copy.
