The micrometer is
adjusted to a slightly larger measurement after each series of rocking
movements until no rocking from left to right is possible and a very slight
drag is felt on the in and out rocking movement.
There are no specific
guidelines on the number of positions within a hole that should be measured.
When checking for a taper, the measurements should be made as far apart as
possible within the hole. When checking for roundness or concentricity of a
hole, several measurements should be taken at different angular positions in
the same area of the hole. A reading can be taken directly from the inside
