    I had a thread on this just recently, I had wondered the same thing and it occurred to me to just try it on my cheapo HF calipers first since they cost so little nothing would be lost. I plugged in my DE-magnatizer, pulled them across it a couple of times then checked them out, no harm at all done to them. So now I have even done it to my Mitutoyo and Starrett and have done so a bunch of times with the HF cheapies with zero problems. Using the HF cheapos I have run them across with them on and off both with the jaws open and with them closed, apparently it's harmless no matter what.

    Probably safer to take the battery out first.

    I've done it several times. It won't hurt your calipers.
    Of course, I did it while they were turned 'OFF'.

    I doubt that it would scramble the electronics.

    I would just close the caliper & demagnetize the metal beam. It should take care of all the metal that way.

    Demagnetizer

    Does any one have any experience with using a demagnetizer on a digital caliper or any other digital measuring tool. Is it safe to use or will it scramble the electronics.
