German term or phrase: Bohrereckmaß
Context = tests being carried out on anchors/fasteners. This is a sentence from the description of the test procedure:
"Herstellung der Bohrungen mit Hammerbohrer und Bohrhammer: *Bohrereckmass* (BEM) = mittel"
The word isn't in any of my dictionaries. I looked up manuals on fasteners and found edge spacing. Is this term correct? Should I use bore edge spacing? As far as I understand it is the distance between the edge of the wall or whatever and the hole being drilled.

Explanation:
maybe a step in the right direction. My glossary collections says:
Eckdaten - key data, bench mark figures
Eckmaß of a hexhead screw is the width across corners,

Here an excerpt from a website:
Elektronik - Trochenbauschrauber
Mit Softgrip und Schraubtiefenschnellverstellung
Die wichtigsten technischen Merkmale dieses Bau-Schraubers im Überblick: hohe Drehzahl für schnelles
Schrauben in Serie, u.a. für Trockenwandinstallationen,
extrem präzise und geräuscharme Abschaltkupplung,
präzise Einstellung des Tiefenanschlags, einfach
abzunehmender Tiefenanschlag, geringes Arbeitsgewicht,
geringes _Eckmass_ für Schraubarbeiten an beengten
Stellen, Softgrip und ergonomisches Design für sicheren
und komfortablen Griff, Servicefreundlichkeit durch leichte
Erreichbarkeit der Kohlebürsten (abnehmbarer Softgrip), präzise Elektronik mit Gasgebefunktion, alle
Einstellungen gut von der Geräteoberseite einsehbar, leistungsstarker 550 Watt Motor

I hadn't selected an answer because Eckmass here definitely didn't seem to be a key or nominal value. The values were given in cms subsequently. Overall size didn't make sense either in the context. I also couldn't see it as being the screw's/drill's width across corners (no corners). Mondt's reference above finally helped me decide to go with edge spacing as I had originally suggested. I'm still not 100% sure it is right, so if anyone does find out please let me know whenever.

Explanation:
Not sure whether this will be of any help. I only found the words separately: Bohrer = drill, Eckmass = width across corners. I hope you can do something with this. Good luck Claire

Explanation:
Eckmass - Nominal size
The prefix 'Eck' is often used in techn./professional German indicating 'key' or 'nominal' (e.g. Eckwert).
