        Will is hilarious...I'm sure he smokes a few bowls here and there...
        I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

          Here is a little more info - pulled off the web...

          Concentricity is complex and rare as it controls opposed median points to a datum axis. Concentricity will control location and only has some effect on the form and orientation of the feature. Concentricity will not control the form of perfectly oval parts but may have an impact on irregular or "D" shaped features.

          : Concentricity may be verified with dial indicators, a CMM or by other methods. If dial indicators are used, two diametrically opposed, mastered indicators are placed on either side of the feature and positioned and rotated about the datum. Several readings are obtained at each selected cross section along the entire length of the feature.

          : To measure for concentricity: Imagine or draw a directional compass on a piece of paper with the north, south, east and west indicated on the compass. Now locate one dial indicator at the east position and one dial indicator at the west position. Lets say that the east dial indicator is reading east and moving east at .010" and the west indicator is reading west moving west at .010". You would subtract the indicator readings from each other to obtain the concentricity tolerance which is .000= .010-.010 at that particular cross section. The indicators have "cancelled" each other out since they moved in opposite directions during measurement. Now rotate the part 90 degrees so the opposed dial indicators are at the north and south positions. Lets say that now you have a reading at the north position and moving south .005" and at the south dial indicator you have a reading of .005 moving in the south direction. You now add the reading together to get .010 = .005+.005. Since both indicators changed in the same direction (south) you would add the indicator readings to obtain the concentricity tolerance. You would repeat this process at many cross section along the entire length of the feature in question.

          : So the question one needs to ask when deciding on TIR vs. Concentricity is what do you want to control? surface deviations from a datum axis (TIR) or opposed points (sum and diff) relative to a datum axis (Concentricity)?

          : Hope this helps
