    Your point is good and valid.

    The article is propaganda, to belittle the chinese.
    It does mention the 29B$ fund they set up, to create chipmaking capacity.

    It occurs to me that errors in minor D, minor R, and pitch D will restrict "go" gages.

    Various ways.

    You can chase them legally for max payment down the line.
    A 1800 $ gets to 9000$, easily.
    2-3 years.
    And you do not need to pay lawyers 4000$ of that.
    3-4-6 meetings and letters,...

    The mold guys, small ic engine makers, high end manufacturers of small parts, use tiny end mills to make and/or finish their parts.

    Now anyone can have any opinion, but when they expose it publicly it should be defensible, by them, according to common metrics.

    To OP:
    You said in contact with owner and good relations.

    Electroplate with whatever brew.

    Think I have relevant experience.

    Most of my advice is likely to taste bad.

    Well Yes, and no.

    Today, maybe 80-90% of parts made on typical 3-axis VMCs could actually be made like that.
