We are currently having an issue related to hole sizes, for our picket panels. The commercial tolerance for the OD of the picket ( 1/2 inch round pipe) is +15000 and - 30000.
We have experinced that when we change the hole size by even 2000 the pickets dont fit well , either too tight or loose. Is there a way to determine an optimum hole size for a material with such wide tolerances. Should we use some statistical tool to determine the mean of a sample of the pickets and use that as our hole size???
Would appreciate your thoughts on thsi issue.
