well, they didnt like using "points"... 1 point 4 thou...nuh. thats vulgar. a vulgar fraction. yuk.


henry ford was a nazi. even more yuk... maybe thats where he got the idea for the X-8 from? ha ha.

X engines may be good for planes but not for cars...

10.000sth scale is used a lot in the aircraft industry and probably others. .0014 +/- .0002 would be the standard for a certain tolerance. Most mfrs use the .001 standard +/- whatever.

they usually call it a tenth, not a ten thousandth of an inch. nothing wrong with tight tolerances but keep your syllables down if you gotta do it
