Machinists / Engineers - quick question

On a print, if there is no title block indicating standard tolerances, and there is an untoleranced dimension on the part (to make), how do you interpret that? It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that dimensions cannot be absolute - e.g. you cannot make a hole exactly 0.25" - there is always some leeway - so if you get a print and it has, say, a radius and another dimension, say a thickness, how do you interpret that?

You know that there must be a tolerance required, but the person that made the spec failed to understand that. Technically, you can do whatever you want with it and fully expect to hear them cry about it later.

I assume this is for a part used by Ford.

I'd make them re-issue the plans with a tolerance specified (adjust cost accordingly) or sign some kind of waiver agreeing that parts will be made with a common tolerance range.

Why do conservative politicians oppose conservation?
Have you ever stopped to think the long-term GOP immigration policy might be to make the United States of America a less desirable place to live than Mexico?
