Exactly, if you ask a machinist to cut something 12" long, you should be expecting something with-in 1/32"-1/64" of 12". If you want it 12 1/16" then you ask them to cut it at that measurement. Having dealt with machinists for many years I must say that you don't take things to them unless it needs to be precise and if they don't make it precise then you need to find another machinist.
