One rule that I have operated by for the last 35 years. “If you have to ask yourself, is this good enough? . It isn’t”
I think more than anything precision is a habit. Having said that we need to remember that the medium actually moves and working in thousandths of an inch in a lot of situations is wasted effort. But the human eye can be trained to detect very small discrepancies that should not be accepted.

I think accurate work is a habit that one learns, but must be governed by a small dose of common sense.
