    It is a slight bit "interesting" as "professional" work is not limited to work that requires a 14" swing, to pull a number out of the air. A busy commercial manual machine shop might well do work...

    You can "infer" squareness, but it is more difficult to prove it, and then you need to use just the perfect spot (s).
