14 gage is ~.075" thick, a much more reasonable thickness

Table 11K in the 2005 NDS has single shear values for 3/8" diam. lag screws
w/ 14 ga. side member thickness:  G=0.5, Z(par)=200#, Z(perp)=130#.  Those
values are for a penetration (p) of 8D into the wood.  For 4D< p< 8D, you
multiply the values by p/8D.

I'm working on the anchorage of equipment to existing wood stud walls and
need to know what the minimum thickness of sheet metal strapping is for both
a 3/8" diam. and 1/2" diam. lag bolt acting in shear and what those shear
values are. I understand the values ares in some light gauge metal handbook
which I do not have. I would like the thickness to be the minimum possible,
(24 ga.?), and still get an allowable shear value of about 400#.
