    Lightbulb Sources, resources, and references

    Hi All,

    I hope this will be a thread where folks can post links to documents related to measuring techniques and such.

    Please do not turn this into a discussion thread. That's not the purpose. If you want to discuss something posted here, start a new thread with an appropriate title.

    We'll start off with a PDF regarding measurement of hole positions on a circle, provided by Gordon Clarke, here http://www.f-m-s.dk/CDH.pdf

    Thanks.

    - Leigh

    Lightbulb Sources, resources, and references

    [I decided to merge two similar threads into one, since there are too many sticky threads. - TRL]

    The National Physics Laboratory in the UK has free downloads of their measurement guides.

    NPL Guide Listing

    They have guides covering a variety of topics such as:

    A beginner's guide to uncertainty in measurement

    CMM measurement strategies

    Estimating uncertainties in testing

    Fundamental good practice in dimensional metrology

    There are 114 total documents and I believe they are all available for download.

    Lightbulb Sources and resources

    Thought I would start a sticky thread for where to find things.

    Feel free to add to the list, but please, this is not a discussion thread.

    If you want to discuss something, start a new thread with the appropriate topic.

    Clarification...

    This is meant to be a peer-to-peer exchange, where users report their successes to others who may benefit from that knowledge.
    It's not meant to be a vendor-to-customer exchange. Please don't promote your own products. That's spam.

    Well, this was really meant to be third-party references, not self-promotion.

    But since I didn't mention that in the original post I'll let it slide.

    Original post edited.

    Hi Gordon,

    It's difficult to draw a distinction. I would explain it thus:

    This is meant to be a peer-to-peer exchange, where users report their successes to others who may benefit from that knowledge.

    It's not meant to be a vendor-to-customer exchange. That's spam.

    Hope this helps.

    Thought I would bump this since there have been no new entries in almost a year.

    This is an open thread. Anybody can contribute to it, and I encourage you to do so.

    Thanks.

    Default Russian standards

    One of our newest members just posted these links to some Russian standards.

    You'll need to have the Cyrillic font installed to properly render the text below:

    Here is a ГОСТ (National standard) for straight edges:
    http://www.koround.ru/root/files/spe...i/gost-8026-92
    See 2-nd and 3-rd tables.
    2nd table for thin edges ЛД, ЛТ и ЛЧ - linearity tolerance
    3rd table for wide straight edges: 2nd coulumn - flatness , 3rd - parallelism.

    For squares

    Thanks to the poster for that info.

    I'm surprised no one has yet included an easy conversion site for metric to imperial and vice versa.

    If there is a better or easier one than this then just delete this post.

    Metric Converter - converters between metric and imperial units
