Nuts and Bolts and Pitch, Oh My!

Sometimes it's the little things, as all engineers know. The functionality of the most immense, complicated machinery can be compromised by failure of something as small as a nut.

Diane reporting today, here to share with you some more helpful information we provide in our Web site's Technical Section. If you're struggling with spec'ing in metric fasteners and need to know about size options, pitch, and drill sizes, we've got the table for you: check out our Metric Thread Pitch Table.

And while you're at it, take a look at our Limits for Metric (Standard) Coarse Threads for bolts table. It has everything you need to know about the specs for metric bolts, including normal engagement length, major diameters, pitch diameters, and minor diameters for standard metric thread sizes M 1-M 39.

Meanwhile, we have an equivalent table for metric nuts as well.

Just a reminder that you can see all the treasures available in our Technical Section HERE.
