    Playing with Lego requires imagination. You prefer tearing down to building. What has the world done to you to make you such a MOB? The M stands for "Miserable". Figure the rest out.

    If it had been that simple there wouldn't be any problem.

    Leaving the EU has consequences and repercussions for both parties. Some things just can't be swept under the rug. Reminds me of a joke.

    Ad 1. A resounding "YES" to that.

    Ad 2. Yes and no. That's where "corrective action" should come into play. Add the correct tolerance to the drawing and one issue less to deal with next time the...

    It is that simple but too many don't think about it when they write the "recipe". Too much detail in a "recipe" tends to eventually bite you on the ass.

    I've encountered your example more often than I like. I guess it's just too much hard work to change the dimension tolerance in the spec to a realistic tolerance. I hope you detect the sarcasm :)

    My apologies. We agree but took what you wrote as if we didn't :cheers:

    The day "no practical experience" guys took over ISO consultancy and auditing is the day thing started going downhill.

    Who are the monkeys?
    A. Those that buy newspapers?
    B. The politicians in parliament?
    C. Those that voted the politicians in?

    You might be living in the wrong country.

    I'm surprised you're allowed to have a computer in your padded cell :D

    You're delusional. If the vote was a simple as you think then what's the problem? Even in PM you Brits don't agree.

    Probably the reason most voted to keep things "as is" is because of habit. Even a small minority becomes a majority depending on how votes are given in the constituencies.

    I've never really regarded ISO as stipulating anything. It's more recommendations that somehow get turned into demands by those that don't think carefully about what they read. Bit like the religions...

    The pitch diameter tolerance on a 5-40 internal thread is min. 0.1088 and max. 0.1121. If a form tap is used then use a drill as close to 0.1121" as possible. A metric drill (2.80 or even 2.85mm) is...
