French term or phrase: saut de lame
The 'lame' in question is clearly one of the commutator segments for a DC generator, but I can't quite figure out what the 'saut' means --- something to do with undercutting, perhaps? or is it the slot width? Here's one example of where it appears in the text:

"Faire une finition du diamètre de collecteur, retirer toutes les bavures et la limaille de cuivre. Casser les angles des lames du collecteur, retirer toutes les bavures. Vérifier le faux-rond ainsi que le saut de lame.
Attention de ne pas toucher les lames du collecteur avec les doigts afin de ne pas les oxyder."

The other occurrences are similar, and give no additional clues as to its meaning.
