This standard is subdivided into four sections as follows:
1. Terms, Definitions, and General Principles
2. Fixed Limit Gages
3. Limit Indicating Gages (Comparators)
4. Inspection by Measurement
Considerations for the choice of inspection methods described in Sections 2,3 and 4 are provided in 1.4.6.
