Wrong again. The optical comparator can measure to minutes of angle.
It is an aerospace inspection tool of very high precision as well as accuracy.
Five degrees is a very large angular diference, and can easily be measured.
What is the expression "Shoemaker, stick to your last".
I promise that I will not dispute any of your legal opinions, if you will
extend me the same courtesy in my field, which is Aerospace Engineering.
