Note: Out-of-straightness is ordinarily checked at points of maximum deviation (as determined by line-of-sight observation) by means of a three-front straightedge and feeler gages. When overall straightness in entire length is of concern, the tube is rolled on a surface-plate and maximum deviation-from-straight is determined by means of feeler gages inserted between the tube and plate at point of maximum departure. If rotational methods such as chucking the tubs at its ends or supporting the ends on rollers and rotating under a dial indicator are used, extreme care in interpreting results must be employed because readings are influenced by OD dimensional variation in addition to deviation-from-straight. Not applicable to quenched and tempered tubes over 302 BHN.
