Re: Rolled Threads

I agree that you need to go to the source.  That is why I asked for
feedback.  With regards to your statement that UC Berkeley has B1.1 I would
suggest that you check where that copy is.  I believe that you will find it
not located on the campus but at some auxillarly collection.

According to Charlie, when rolled threads are used the diameter of the
shank is midway between the major diameter and the minor diameter.

I suggest that you do some research as to the actual standard of practice
is in the structural enginering profession.
