What is the "standard" method for dimensioning slots? We have for years located the slot by the geometric centerlines and described the slot size by note. For example: "SLOT 9/16 X 1". Some of us are wanting to locate the slot with the longitudinal centerline in one direction and by the ends of the slot in the opposite direction. I haven't found any conclusive ANSI discussion.
