I am SURE they could be produced to a 0.0002 tolerance, but the COST
would probably be prohibitive. Balance between COST and the tolerance
is why they are only done to 0.002 or whatever
The key is to MINIMIZE the error, as it is not really possible to
eliminate all errors

Ok - then let the .0002 errors compound. What do you end up with after a
few measurements? .0006? .0010? .0090? Is it really meaningful at all?
You'd have to accumulate a lot of errors before you ever hit a point where
it impacted the project at hand.

Slightly anyway. I'm actually getting on fine with a set of four corner
clamps so far. They seem to be a very good solution to this particular
problem, and they're already paid for.

Not in the least. Like a lot of Lee Valley products, they are for
Yuppieville wannabees. If a woodworker can't align his pieces at 90
degrees while clamping, he should find another hobby. If you wore
everything they sell before going into your garden to grow a few spuds
you'd look like a Martian immigrant. I've gone through magazine after
magazine wondering who on Earth spends their money this way. Sure,
there might be the odd item, but page after page of such rubbish just
turns me away. They might suit the computerised micrometer clan
though, who can't cut a piece of wood if it's not accurate to ten
Amen brother!!! I agree with you 110%. But you and I both know that 75% of
the people that hang out here have their noses so far up LV's ass that, well
probably enough said already. I'm the greatest, I bought all my stuff from
Lee Valley! Bull shit!

Well, well. Glad to see your alt.test post went well, so you could
post this drivel here. Too bad you don't have any credibility tho. By
the way, I believe that bullshit is one word. And, I don't own anything
from Lee Valley - but that's subject to change at any time, especially
in view of your enlightening post..
