That's a load of cr@p. Their manufacturing process does not involve milling number one, and second there's no way any machining process (I've spent a LOT of time running mills and lathes) could possibly come up with those dimensions. If you weren't paying ANY attention the worst you could do would be about .002, not .005. With CNC it would be more like .0005. The problem is with their powder-metal sintering process, not with machining.

In any event, like I wrote, from an engineering standpoint, the parts should operate as-intended with the dimensions written, even if their quality control sucks. I just hope the hardness and tensile strength is properly distributed as the design was intended.
