RE: Steel - Acme thread

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The rod will be turned periodically to adjust elevation under load.  It is part of a machine of sorts.  I want to avoid galling and thread fouling.  The Acme threads are squared (as opposed to triangular for UNC threads) in profile and made for moving machine parts.

McMaster-Carr lists Acme threaded rods, studs, nuts, coupling nuts, and other
specialized nuts in their catalog.

Harold, what advantage is offered by Acme threads over conventional threads?
