When storing a micrometer Never tighten the Anvil against the Spindle.   If the micrometer is dropped, check it for accuracy with a Gauge Block before using it, to make sure it is still accurate.

To clean a micrometer, close all of the way, clamping a piece of  paper.  Then pull the paper out rubbing the tips of the spindle and anvil clean.

When storing, leave a small opening. Store it in a dry place, box, or pouch.
