    AD beat me to it.

    Technically, what you're referring to as a "shear edge" is called burnish. Judging from the photos, you don't have enough of it. Which means too much clearance. How did you...

    Did I say I never made a mistake? No, I didn't. And yes, we scrap details that aren't to print and make them correctly. Seriously, you can't tell a 10-32 from a 10-24 just from feel?

    You have to be kidding. I'm a law abiding citizen, and it's not an "inconvenience", it's a violation of the law and my rights. If they don't have probable cause, they can go pound sand.
