    Taps & Dies Useful Tables

    Taps and dies are tools used to create screw threads.
    Surely some of them are present at any home shop, or at any toolbox.
    But how many of us can remember the recommended hole diameter for internal threads cutting or the recommended shaft diameter for external threads cutting for all types of threads?
    So I made this video, and I believe that will be very useful to everyone.

    Tables contents
    M Metric screw thread
    MF Metric screw fine thread
    BSW British standard whitworth thread (55° profile)
    BSF British standard fine thread
    UNC Unified coarse thread
    UNF Unified fine thread
    BSP British standard pipe thread
    PG Old German 80° thread
    NPT National pipe thread used for plumbing of water and gas pipes,
    and threaded electrical conduit

    Printabe version of the Tables

    Taps & Dies Useful Tables-table_dies.jpg Taps & Dies Useful Tables-table_taps.jpg

    I think a printable version of these tables, can be more useful than a video
    and I decided to upload a printable version.
    I think a (.pdf) is better than a photo, but I couldn't find the way to do this.
    Click the thumbnail of photo to open it -->
    right click on the photo -->
    save as to save it in your HDD.
    Then you can to print or convert it to a pdf file.
    The dimensions are A4 at landscape orientation and fits exactly to one page.
