Craps Size Up The Dice

Dear Mark,
What is the "allowable" size difference in a set of five dice on a
craps table? The reason I ask is, I got some game-used ones from a
casino I frequent. They are numbered 1230 and 1232, which I figured to
be part of a five number set. We got bored at work and measured them on
our Coordinate Measuring Machine. We found a .0007 variation from all
sides of the pair. David S.

Games management is the second line of defense when a new deck (set) of dice is introduced on a crap game. Prior to their baptism, a pit boss will inspect the dice with a micrometer to make sure they were produced to a tolerance level of .0005 of an inch.

The first line of defense is the dice maker. That manufacturer deals in
tolerances of .0002, with imperfections discarded, making the random
nature of a dice throw a certainty.

The most unlikely scenario is that dice 1230 and 1232 were from
different decks. They could be from a slightly larger than normal set
of dies allowing more tolerance, or they were lackadaisically inspected
upstairs and somehow slipped through.

Either way, I doubt that the extra .0002" deficiency from one die to
another would affect the outcome of the rolls. Next time you happen to
run into a couple ten-thousandths of an inch, just ask 'em.
