Hi all, my company purchases a zinc die casted part that recently has had a flash issue. The supplier states that the part meets drawing specs and is refusing to rework the parts unless we pay a service fee per part. As I reviewed the drawing I noticed that in one of our notes it states "FLASH ALLOWANCE TO 1.500 MAX". I'm trying to understand what this means. Is there a website or book that I can reference on how to correctly interpret this or update my drawing to correctly call-out flash acceptance? Thank you.
