Lever probes are available in two types. The most common type uses a pivoted stylus so the contact point moves in a circular arc; the 519-326 uses a parallel translation leaf-spring mechanism so contact point movement is linear; and requires no cosine correction.

- The measuring direction changes with the forward reverse lever.
- This probe type allows for multipoint measurements of small parts, flatness, and straightness measurements on an X/Y table, etc. and runout measurement of shafts.
