Q: What does You depend on precision. You depend on reliability. Both are an extension of your craft. And your craft is an extension of you. mean?
A: In this instance, it is indicating that both precision and reliability are a very important part of what you do, so the phrase ‘an extension of your craft’ indicates that your work/trade is made more important than other people’s work and would be diminished without it. Said another way, without precision and reliability, your work/trade would be less significant.

Q: What does continued precision mean?
A: That sentence is very buzzword-heavy and doesn't really convey anything important apart from that he thinks the B-52 is a good bomber plane.

Other questions about "Precision"

Q: "To a precision of one one-thousandth of a second."
Is "one one-thousandth" the same as "a thousand"? Why repeat "one"?
A: One-thousandth of a second is a specific amount of time. In numbers, it is 0.001 seconds. The "one" is repeated to indicate how many of that specific amount of time. It makes more sense when you realize that you would say "two one-thousandths of a second" (0.002) or "five one-thousandths of a second" (0.005).

You would not say "Ten one-thousandths of a second" (0.010) because that changes the decimal place. You would say "One one-hundredth of a second" (0.01).
