- Where the diameter to thickness exceeds 100, the tolerance on out-of-roundness becomes the subject of agreement between the manufacturer and purchaser.
- The tolerance on concexity and concavity is independent of the tolerance on external dimensions.
- The straighness tolerance applies to straightness in any one plane.
- In lieu of any other requirement, the specified mass is considered to be the nominal mass.
