There is a standard covering just about every topic in measurement, from diameters to surface finish. These standards are authored by experts in the respective field of measurement and many are referenced by engineering drawings to help clarify specific information. If you work for a company, your engineering group probably has these standards available, or you can buy them from the standards organizations. The cost of these standards supports the efforts of the groups and individuals responsible for their creation.
This section covers questions related to standards, as well as presenting some "rules of thumb" used by laymen and measurement professionals.
