Methods for analyzing surface profile data in terms of the finish power spectral density and mean-square finish error are discussed. Results of a preliminary comparison between mechanical- and optical-stylus measurements of a set of precision-machined surfaces are presented. Excellent quantitative agreement is obtained, although certain features observed in the case of strongly periodic surfaces require further study.
