New threads

A couple of weeks ago I posted on UKWorkshop asking for information on what gauges etc I would need to figure out the threads of missing screws.

As well as a lot of useful information from a variety of people, someone also offered to sell me some of the things I’d need.

After a bit of correspondence a parcel arrived yesterday containing:

Zeus & Engineers reference tables

Standard wire gauge

  • Browne & Sharpe No. 710 standard Wire Gauge plate – £5

Shop made gauge

  • Shop-made gauge with 75 & 55 degree angles at either end and TPI gauge down either side – free

  • Moore & Wright 47/55 & 60 degree pitch gauge – £2

  • Mass. Tool Co No. 137 nest of TPI gauges – £3

Standard wire gauge

  • John Shaw & Sons standard wire gauge – not mentioned by the seller, but included anyway, which is nice!
