    We do seem to live in two different worlds. Of course mistakes get made. That's unavoidable. It is though as if the USA focused more on competing with India and China than on the countries it should...

    Not a discussion I wish to take but it looks like a "low wage" solution. Probably neither the machinists or inspectors get a good pay but I don't know how much they earn so it's only my opinion....

    When I read your post and similar then of course the USA is slipping further behind other countries re manufacturing quality. No, I'm not saying all other countries don't "cheat" now and then but it...

    Certainly not all posts but what I'm getting from several posts is that how good an inspector is varies very much from place to place.

    What I look for in a good inspector is several things but...

    Sorry. My internet acted weird and I don't know what happened. I hope this is more correct.

    The gauges in the first link certainly look excellent for small mass produced threads.

    Of course I've known bad inspectors but never quite like as described in post #9. What inspector would try and scrap good parts for "praise" and hope to get away with it?

    Interesting. I'm guessing you either have special customers or machine expensive parts or both. What's the largest diameter threads you use pins for?

    I wonder how many shops know what the...

    Have you ever known any "QC people" that would do that or do you just dislike "QC people"?
