When testing cylindrical specimens, the accuracy of the test will be seriously affected by alignment of elevating screw, Vee-anvil, indenters, surface finish, and the straightness of the cylinder. These corrections are approximate only and represent the averages, to the nearest 0.5. Rockwell and Rockwell superficial numbers, of numerous actual observations.
