  British Standard Whitworth (BSW) Thread Form
The principal features of the British Standard Whitworth (BSW) thread form are that the angle between the thread flanks is 55 degrees and the thread has radii at both the roots and the crests of the thread.
The relevant standard for this thread form is BS 84: 1956.
The British Standard Fine (BSF) thread has the same profile as the BSW thread form but was used when a finer pitch was required for a given diameter.

  Unified Screw Threads
It is used for producing threads in low strength materials such as cast iron, mild steel, and softer copper alloys, aluminum etc. The coarse thread is also used for rapid assembly or disassembly.
Fine Thread Series, UNF/UNRF: This is used for applications that require a higher tensile strength than the coarse thread series and where a thin wall is required.
Unified Standard Series and Selected Combinations, Unified Standard Series: The preferred threads to be used are either the coarse thread series or the fine thread series described above.

 [No title]
Now that the Thread's stop(), suspend() etc., methods have been deprecated, the only way to safely terminate a thread is to have it exit its run() method, perhaps via an un-checked exception.
At the very least this requires a call to the Thread interrupt() method to break out of sleep() and wait() methods that the thread may be trapped in, in some lower level method.
In this article I have suggested using the Thread's interrupted state as a flag to stop it, however in spite of what the Java docs on interrupt() say, a thread's interrupt state will not be set if it has not yet been started (by calling start()).

 Application Engineering
The family of screw threads including Acme, Unified, Trapezoidal and ISO are known as Archimedean screws because they exhibit straight thread profiles in their axial sections.
Later, Britain, Canada and the United States developed the Unified Screw Thread standard which is in wide use today, and which was copied conceptually by the International Standards Organization when that body standardized the ISO fastener threads and the metric Trapezoidal power screw threads.
Unified and ISO fastener "Vee" threads should not be used for actuation as their 30° flank angles and finer pitches are designed for fastening and locking down.

 Nuts on Coburn-Myers Fastening Systems, Inc.
A heavy hex nut made of alloy steel, manufactured in accordance with ASTM Standard A563 Grade C. The strongest of all the comparably-graded nut designs because of its greater length of thread engagement and greater resistance to dilation (widening or stretching).
A heavy hex nut made of alloy steel, manufactured in accordance with ASTM Standard A563 Grade D. The strongest of all the comparably-graded nut designs because of its greater length of thread engagement and greater resistance to dilation (widening or stretching).

 Plug Gauges, Thread Ring, Fixed Limit Gages And Three Wire Method - Thread Check Inc.
The setting of a thread ring gage is specific to the particular set plug that the ring is set to.
Standard practice for gaging NPTF threads calls for using 2 or 3 gages in coordination with each other.
The adoption of a standard uniform practice in making such measurements is, therefore, desirable in order to reduce such uncertainty of measurement to a minimum.

 Screw Summary
Threaded fasteners are traditionally made by a cutting action such as taps and dies provide, however recent advances in tooling allows them to be made by rolling the blank (a section of rod) between two specially machined dies.
The preload is calculated as a percentage of the bolt's yield tensile strength, or the strength of the threads it goes into, or the compressive strength of the clamped layers (plates, washers, gaskets), whichever is least.
Standardization of screw thread forms accelerated during WWII so that interchangeable parts could be produced by any of the Allied countries.

Description:This Standard provides safety requirements for the design, construction, testing, and use of nailhammers that are intended specifically for use in driving or pulling common (unhardened) nails and ripping apart or tearing down wooden components.
The Standard is also meant to serve as a guide in developing manuals and posters for training personnel in safe practices.

 N and UN thread series   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In almost all thread series, the number of threads per inch decreases as the diameter increases.
All the bolts in the 8N series had 8 threads per inch, all in the 12N series had 12 threads per inch (used in boilers and for thin nuts on shafts), and in 16N, sixteen threads per inch (used where precise positioning of a big nut is required e.g., for bearing adjusting nuts).
The N constant-pitch series were later replaced by constant-pitch Unified Thread series, that had the Unified thread form and are designated 4UN, 8UN, and so on.

Also consider the diameter of the thread form being cut along with the length of the form and the pitch.
Keep in mind that the thread mill must fit inside the minor diameter of your thread form.
In most cases the first two numbers of our tools represents the smallest thread form that it is able to cut, always check for the cutter diameter in the catalog to ensure proper clearance.

 Advanced Thread - The L.S. Starrett Company   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Other thread characteristics such as lead, flank angle, taper and roundness variations are confined within these limits with no specific control of their magnitudes.
The differential is considered the size of the thread, with all of its variation in lead, flank angle, taper, and out-of-round, minus the Pitch diameter.
One of the sizes, pitch diameter, is the size of the thread with essentially zero variation in all other thread elements, while the other size, GO functional size, is the size of the thread with the effects of all variations in all other thread elements added to the pitch diameter.

 American screw thread gauges
These series (and the UNR, UNJ and fixed-pitch series) are the inch-based thread series currently used in the United States, and have been since 1949.
The UNS series is a catch-all category for threads which have the American Standard form, but whose pitches are not in the Unified Coarse (UNC) or Unified Fine (UNF) series.
In the Unified National Series the ½ inch size has 13 threads per inch, but the American Standard was 12 threads per inch.

 British Fasteners
The death knell for Whitworth threads was rung during WWII when it became apparent that a common thread system was desperately required for the Allies.
Like U.S. threads, three families of threads were developed; a miniature series known as BA or British Association, a coarse thread series known as BSW or British Standard Whitworth and a fine thread series known as BSF or British Standard Fine.
The foregoing is a very brief introduction to the complex world of screw threads and by no stretch of the imagination does it include all the families of threads a restorer may run into.

 Definition of Unified Thread Standard
Adopted by the Screw Thread Standardization Committees of Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States on Nov 18, 1949 in Washington, D.C., the Unified Thread Standard or UTS are standards for screw threads used in the above countries with the hope they will be adopted universally.
UTS may come as Unified Coarse (UNC[1] (http://homepages.tesco.net/~A10bsa/uncgo.htm)) or Unified Fine (UNF [2] (http://homepages.tesco.net/~A10bsa/unfgo.htm))
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) preferred series, based on metric rounded numbers is the standard that has been adopted world-wide and has displaced all former standards, including UTS.

 Long-Lok Fasteners - Products: T-Sert
During installation of the mating fastener the T-Sert self-locking element flows into the thread root, forcing the fastener threads into metal-to-metal contact with the threads of the T-Sert insert, thus holding it securely.
Because the T-Sert locking action is prevailing, and does not depend upon the seating of the mating fastener, it does not loosen with severe vibration or shock.
The inserts are installed by utilizing the internal thread of the insert and a simple driving tool.
