They are built to the nearest 0.001" of an inch.
I'm impressed, that's finer than a surveyor's RCH.

You guys go to the nearest tenth of a foot, right?

But you can cover much larger distances. Miles.

100th of a foot, or about 1/8 inch for most things, closer if need be.
Man did we hate it when need be.

100th.

I knew there was a one and a zero in there somehow.

Kind of like the metric system.

Go metric yo.

Much of the build is too complex for robotic manufacture, or execution via remote device. The airplanes are still largely built by hand. Parts are indexed in tooling, clamped up, then drilled, removed, cleaned and deburred, inspected and then assembled.

Robotic and automated drilling and assembly has been implemented where it can be, and works well. It still requires human operators though, and they need to be present during the operations to intervene should the machines have any technical issues.


So you are happy for a robot to do your prostate but metalwork needs a person.

And it causes real pain to landowners when the next surveyor comes along and gets it different, so a structure the first surveyor said was on the correct side of the boundary now encroaches by 1/4". The offended landowner wants the land paid for, and depending on land regulations could result in their land falling smaller than the size necessary for a subdivision which greatly impacts value, not just the value of the sliver at average price of land, and also the legal costs of official change of title and the overheads of the land transaction fees. Or dismantle the offending bit of the structure.

Unless it's a major problem or error, a zoning variance will take care of it.

Been looking for goat cheese for a while.
We don't have any earthmuffins selling in the regional chains though that I can find.
Google is your friend! That or the local farmers market. My Goat farm that makes my Chevre and yogurt is 40 miles away but they go to a nearby market. I also stop by their farm stand when I am in the area of the farm also. Definitely worth spending some time looking for some local goat cheese and meat!

I have seen a couple homes moved, and one partially torn down, because they were built in the wrong place. I even lived in a house that later was moved to settle a boundary dispute.

People around here seem to battle a lot over these things. When I worked in civil engineering we did a lot if work in that area, having crews survey the encroachments, create the drawings that will become an instrument in a courtroom, and filed away in come cabinet at the auditor's office.

Some were settled by redrawing the property lines, money changing hands, and a lot of different people making money (or losing) from it. Things like apartment buildings aren't easy to move after being built.

Seems like people kick up quite a fuss over as little as 1/4''...
