We describe the X-ray performance of the AXAF TMA in the 0.277 to 6.4 keV range. We verify the precise figure and smooth surface originally specified, and which were expected from the in-process optical and mechanical measurements. This paper primarily describes the test equipment and methods used, and gives examples of the detailed on-axis and off-axis data we acquired.
