I am recreating an engineering drawing package from old quotes for a large assembly. In the quote they say "All length edges not to exceed 1/32" deep feathering". For some context this is for a bunch of graphite blocks which were cut to a constant cross-section.

First what exactly does feathering mean in this machining context? Secondly what is the best way to denote this tolerance on an engineering drawing?

Could they possibly be referring to surface finish? If they are, its called surface roughness, denoted as a value "Ra"
