Apply non-precision measuring instruments.

Definition

Application should include taking non-precision measurements in the machining industry (e.g., setting the length of layout tools, inspecting dimensions of a finished part) by using rulers, protractors, and basic transfer tools, such as simple inside and outside calipers, to determine the compliance of a part of selected dimensions.

Process/Skill Questions

  • What are the names of several non-precision measuring instruments?
  • What are non-precision transfer tools?
  • What does a protractor measure?
  • What are the different kinds of rulers or scales?
