INSTRUCTIONS
(1) Assume appropriate data and state your reasons
(2) Marks are given to the right of every question
(3) Draw neat diagrams wherever necessary

1 (a) Distinguish between line standards and end standards.
4 M
1 (b) Give the details of M112 set of slip guage and using he same build the following dimensions
(i) 34.1685 (ii) 64.8975 (iii) 79.7915
8 M
1 (c) Four end bars A, B, C, D of approximately 100 mm in length are to be calibrate using standard and calibrated length bar of 400 mm. This calibrate standard has actual length of 399.9998 mm. The bar B is 0.0004 mm longer then bar A, bar C is 0.0003 mm longer then bar A and bar D is 0.0001 mm shorter then bar A. the four end bars, when mounted, their combined length is found to be 0.0004 mm longer then actual length of standard bar, estimate the actual length of each end bar.

2 (a) With a neat sketches, explain the hole based and shaft based system of limits and fits.
6 M
2 (b) Give detailed classification of guages.
4 M
2 (c) Calculate all the relevant dimensions of components of assembly designated as 25 H7-f8, given that 25 mm fall in the diameter steps of 18-30. The fundamental deviation for 'f' shaft is -5.5 D0.41. Tolerance unit $s=0.45 \sqrt {D}+0.001D.$ Tolerance for IT7=165 and for IT8=25i. Show all the dimensions on tolerance diagram.

4 M
3 (b) Explain with a neat sketch, the working principle of electrical comparator.
6 M
3 (c) Given the details of angle guage set and build the following angles
