THREAD PITCH GAUGEPosted: 11 January 2017
Thread pitch gauge, or also known as screw pitch gauge is used as a reference tool to discover the pitch of a thread that is on a screw/bolt or in a tapped hole.It allows you to quickly categorize any thread by shape and pitch, saving time in that it removes the need for you to measure and calculate the thread pitch of the item. They are a handy tool that we feel every workshop should have in their collection. They can be found in both metric and imperial, we happen to supply a thread pitch gauge that covers all of Metric, UNC, UNF, BSW, BSF, BSP and the rare BSC 26tpi. Try to avoid the cheaper items as this could lead to wrong measurements being taken and then armed with false information a lot of damage could be made. They are very straightforward to use, simply match the threads on any screw or bolt to the threaded edge of the a leaf, if the threads align perfectly you have identified the thread pitch correctly as shown in the diagram below.
