*Because of distortion, normal straightness tolerances do not apply if any subsequent heating operation has been performed.

**Because of distortion, special straightness tolerances do not apply if any subsequent heating operation except stress relieving has been performed after special straightening. Increased surface hardness is normal to the operation.

Note:
Tolerances shown are based upon ASTM A29. Reference: AISI Steel Products Manual, Alloy, Carbon and HSLA Steels. March, 1986.
