That doesn't help with the hole diameter and depth unfortunately.

Jon, Don't you just hate those pesky machinists.....
Maybe a section view thru the hole that would allow you to show the angle of the dangle, plus a couple of reference dims to features that he can measure from.
Or are you looking for a way to measure along the curve?

Insert a tooling ball and dimension from the ball Insert a plane and use the center of the ball and an angle R. Wink
