a result of initial production inspection will be considered prima facie evidence
that all augers accepted prior to the completion of initial production
inspection are similarly deficient unless evidence to the contrary is furnished
by the contractor and such evidence is acceptable to the contracting officer.
Quality conformance inspection.
4.5.1 Examination. Each auger shall be examined as specified in 4.6.1.
Presence of one or more defects shall be cause for rejection.
4.5.2 Tests. Each auger shall be tested as specified in 22.214.171.124. Failure

126.96.36.199 Test conditions (operating)*
lubricated with oils and greases as specified in 3.10.1. Oils shall be those
designated for use in the ambient temperature at which the test is being
performed. All tests except 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 shall be conducted with the

the reverse speeds shall be used. Measure the revolutions per minute of the
boring bar while operating in first gear and highest gear. Rotation of the
boring bar at a speed greater than 40 rpm in first gear or less than 120 rpm in
highest gear shall constitute failure of this test.
