Limits and fits

In mechanical engineering, limits and fits are a set of rules regarding the dimensions and tolerances of mating machined parts if they are to achieve the desired ease of assembly, and security after assembly - sliding fit, interference fit, rotating fit, non-sliding fit, loose fit, etc.

Tolerances are typically specified in thousandths of an inch or hundredths of a millimetre.[1]
