true position

true position

good morning, every one!
I went to a job interview last Friday, They gave me a micrometer and a regular solid tube and they asked me to measured the true position. I told them I was not prepare for something like that and Of course I was not consider for the position.
Can some one explained me how to calculate a true position on a situation like that.

RE: true position

I don't know, is kind of frustrating, I asked if he can provide me with a drawing, I was hoping to find some basic dimensions or any other help full information, but he said he only need to see how I will calculate a true position on a part like that.

This sound like a 'twicky qwestion' that is best discussed in the Drafting Standards, GD&T & Tolerance Analysis forum http://www.eng-tips.com/threadminder.cfm?pid=1103
