My question is in a way continuation of the discussion in this thread:

I am starting a new discussion because I am not willing to further hijack the other thread.

 

Our drawings are in mm. Currently we have this table:

 

Many other companies do it the same way but we have encountered problems now and then because of it.

 

We are considering replacing the table with a note like this:

 

Unless otherwise specified tolerances are: H11-h11-JS11

 

With a previous employer we were making all our parts in-house and it was understood that FOR ALL FREE DIMENSIONS:

external dimensions will be machined at nominal or - and  all internal dimensions will be at nominal or +. (We did not even have it on the title block)

 

It worked great for us- if I want a grove for a flat bar part for example I did not have to worry with tolerancing as they would oversize it and the flat bar will be undersized. (or shaft and bore)

 

My question is: How many of you have similar approach and would you recommend different note?
