Tolerance for weldment's angular dimension

Tolerance for weldment's angular dimension

(OP)
Hello,
Why does ISO 13920 say that the length of the shorter leg determines the applicable tolerance for the angular dimension of a weldment? Wouldn't the deviation be dependent on the longer leg?

RE: Tolerance for weldment's angular dimension

Because the longer leg is acting as implied datum.

Thanks, CheckerHater. My shorter leg is on a datum, so I'll base the tolerance on my longer leg.
