Respectfully, gerd, you do misunderstand.
Total runout in this case is in the GD&T sense. Your definition roughly matches the means of measuring single runout.
Singular runout is the total needle movement for any single planar section of a cylinder. It can be equated to zones defined by minimum and maximum circles that define the region a single section of a surface occupies when rotated about a given axis.
Total runout is single runout expanded to the entire axial length of a cylindrical surface. Total runout consists, by definition, of two concentric cylinders that encompass a feature about a defined axis. Generally, total runout is measured by taking single runout at intervals along an entre cylinder. The extremes of needle deflection for the entire set of intervals yields total runout.
I looked in my GD&T book, as well as checked with our quality department. It seems that total runout only applies to cylinders, as it is defined by AMSE standards.
