4.5 Inspection equipment.- Except as otherwise provided for by the
contract, the contractor shall supply and maintain inspection equipment
in accordance with the applicable requirements of MIL-I-45607.
4.5.1 Government furnished inspection equipment.- Where the contract
provides for Government furnished test equipment, supply and maintenance

188.8.131.52 Contractor design.- The contractor shall design and supply
inspection equipment compatible with the "Test Methods and Procedures"
specified in 4.6 of this specification and with the component inspection
procedures specified in "Examination" and "Test Facilities" requirements
of MIL-F-13926. Since tolerance of test equipment is normally considered
to be within ten percent of the product tolerance for which it is intend-
ed, this inherent error in the test equipment design must be considered
as part of the prescribed product tolerance limit. Thus, concept, con-
struction, materials, dimensions and tolerances used in the design of
test equipment shall be so selected and controlled as to insure that the
test equipment will reliably indicate acceptability of a product which
does not exceed 90% of the prescribed tolerance limit, and permit positive
rejection when non-conforming. Construction shall be such as to facili-
tate routine calibration of test equipment.
