Need help determining the tolerance

RE: Need help determining the tolerance

6Sigma,

My quick search of their drawing did not reveal a positional tolerance to go with their basic dimension. I suggest a thorough search of their drawing, followed by a phone call if necessary.

so in lieu of a positional tolerance call out then the tolerances within the title block are the controlling values?

RE: Need help determining the tolerance

6_Sigma,

The box around the width dimension tells me there is a feature control frame on the drawing somewhere. Using a drawing note to control positional tolerances (unless otherwise specified) is perfectly valid. I didn't read through the notes.

The phone call should be to Amp, not to me. smile

I think Yunx.liu and Ly.yi need to take a course in GD&T.

Who are Yunx.liu and Ly.yi?

LOL! That's what I was thinking when I submitted the initial question, I haven't worked with GDT in over a decade and am very rusty hence the need for alternative opinions.

Thanks all for support.

RE: Need help determining the tolerance

38.94 mm dim. has a tol. of +/-0.25mm as stated in the block. Nothing wrong here.

RE: Need help determining the tolerance

Since there is nothing relating the datums, they features they are based on can be up to 5 degrees from each other.

It would be nice if the tolerance text size wasn't smaller than the nominal values. Is that text somehow less important?

RE: Need help determining the tolerance

On the upper right corner of the drawing there is something that looks like mating part.
There are 2 holes 1.30 DIA, 38.94 mm apart, with general tolerance of +/-0.05.

Technically, this may be enough to calculate value for missing position tolerance.

And juergenwt, block tolerance applies "unless otherwise specified", and once you specify "basic", you DO specify otherwise.

RE: Need help determining the tolerance

Are any of the position FCF that they remembered to put on the drawing even valid?
