I'm just posting in the off chance someone knows how to take apart a Nilco dial bore gage. I picked it up off ebay, the indicator works, and I removed the actual probe head and it works but the rod that transfers motion to the dial indicator seems to be seized in the shaft...That's where I'm stuck, I can't figure out how to get the rod out of the shaft. The base of the shaft looks like it may be threaded but I don't want to force it and bust my, er, don't want to bust my broken dial bore gage. Can't seem to find Nilsson on the web, anyone know who they are now or who bought them? Thanks.
