I have a cast part with a square counterbore on the the backside of a hole so the nut will seat against the face. I am working on getting my GD&T skills up to speed though wondering the best way to define this feature? Can you still use a diameter position tolerance just as you would with a circle counterbore or would it be better to use a profile tolerance?
