Abstract
The optical fabrication industry is troubled on one hand by a lack of standardized specifications and on the other hand by the overzealous application of the few formal specifications which it does have. The article comments on the various philosophies of tolerancing, the difficulties in communicating tolerances, and the pitfalls to the implementation of specifications. The nature, use and abuse of the MIL-0-13830 scratch and dig standards are also considered.
