          Appeal No. 1997-1335                                                        
          Application No. 08/201,023                                                  


          within manufacturing tolerances.  Thus, the Examiner’s                      
          statement that Miura’s Figure 11C, with a 100% ratio, could                 
          meet the claim requirements (answer-page 4), is especially                  
          true when considering manufacturing tolerances.                             
                    In view of the foregoing, the decision of the                     
          Examiner rejecting claims 1 and 5 under 35 U.S.C.  103 is                  
          affirmed.                                                                   



















                    No time period for taking any subsequent action in                
          connection with this appeal may be extended under 37 CFR                    
           1.136(a).                                                                 
                                          8
