Archaic expression, used in many trades to mean 'spot on', or absolutely accurate. It originates from the times when machinsts machines were set with a set of nuts, on a fine threaded screw inside the machine which controled it's movements to and froe. The nut would be set at absolute zero, or the stop, or limit of the machine. When the nut was tightened, and the zero set, it would be considered a dead nut.
