When making measurements, devices should not be forced or over tightened. Many of these tools come with calibration blocks and should be checked regularly for best results.
It is often necessary to use methods such as magnetic particle testing or dye penetrant inspection to be assured that cracking is completely removed. Once the crack has been completely removed, judgment must be exercised as to whether the part (a) can be used as is, (b) can be repaired, or (c) must be rejected and scrapped. Some specifications prescribe how much cracking is acceptable. The American Petroleum Institute, in many of its specifications, allows surface defects if the depth is no greater than 12½ percent of the wall thickness.
