View Full Version : Printable machinist charts - a compilation

I just finally got tired of all my little bits of paper and filthy printouts that I invariably misplace. Feeds-n-speeds, tap/clearance dills, all sorts of stuff. So I bought a poly ring binder and two dozen heavy duty sleeves just to go in my shop, time to get it into use...

So I figure that if I can find the original sources, I'll make new printouts and put in the sheets to help protect. Stuff like that recent metric feed-speed chart (that we never did see an imperial version of :( ), and there was a Starrett(?) tap drill chart a while back too.

Now, I can and will go through searching this and other sites, Google, and I've got some saved local, but wouldn't it be nice if there were a compilation of links to these resources?

What I propose is that this thread be used to form a compilation of such links to whatever resources of this nature (see subject) you run across. If this goes anywhere, the perhaps Craig or someone can make it "sticky".

PLEASE, NO NOISE IN THIS THREAD!

If you want to talk about something cool or confusing, say "thank you" for a particularly relevant/useful resource, whatever; please start another thread and link to this one if needed. But of course, if you KNOW the info linked is wrong, post here so someone does not get burned, but otherwise, just a short description of the topic of the link, and the link itself.

Assuming anyone cares to contribute, lets keep this thread CLEAN and on topic, "Just the links ma-am...". ;)

Here is a nice tap chart (std/metric are separate) with different thread %.

Some sites and tables I have found useful.

Drill size chart for metric, fractional, wire and letter size drills from 0.1mm-0.0039 inch to 1.000 inch. Yes I know this is a wood working site but the drill bits are metal :)
http://www.saw-online.com/Tips/drill.htm

Another drill size chart from 0.25mm-0.0098 inch to 1.000 inch, but in ascending order
http://www.csgnetwork.com/drillsizeconvert.html

International thread standards (has 34 different threads)

OK! A lot of verry good links.
Now how do I extract the charts from the html pages to print ?
Don't think cut-paste will work.
It would be nice to have that bolt circle pgm. in the computer itself
rather than having to go on-line to use it.

a good source for physical properties (strength, conductivity, etc.) of metals and plastics.

Not printable charts, but a wealth of engineering, material, & design/specification info.

I use this program,

It's free to download and try for 30 days but cost $15 for the license if you want to keep using it.

Some info here on pipe - not as good of a source as the one i printed my stuff from but ...

http://academic.evergreen.edu/projects/biophysics/technotes/fabric/pipe.htm

Number size screws and tap info

http://academic.evergreen.edu/projects/biophysics/technotes/fabric/number.htm

Here's some more pipe info, this site is a good one to browse through for info related to machining...

Here's some info about tapers - this one you probably want to copy and paste into word to make it more useable and neater.

http://www.tools-n-gizmos.com/specs/Tapers.html

Thats just a few...some charts on bolt grades, strengths and minimum thread engagement might be useful.

Speaking of online sines, I forgot to mention this site of online signs.

It has just about every type of safety and warning sign there is as well as a custom sign maker online and free with no catches. It will produce a sign you can print in high quality.

Very cool site Evan -- thanks!!
I've got a couple of machines that I've repainted, and had to destroy the warning stickers.


Now how do I extract the charts from the html pages to print ?
Don't think cut-paste will work.

I think this is on-topic, and not confusing, so...

The easiest way to do this is with Microsoft Word. Click somewhere on the web page (like the Drill Size Conversion Table that RollaJohn posted),
click 'Ctrl-A' to Select All. Then click 'Ctrl-C' to copy the whole chart. Now open a blank Word document and click "Ctrl-V' to paste the chart
into your Word document.

Now you have an offline copy of the web chart, and you can format it, remove the adverts, combine it with other charts, print it, ...

I keep photocopies of tables from catalogs or print-outs from websites in sleeves in a binder like Baddog suggests.

O-ring groove dimensons (look in O-ring handbook) are available from:

http://www.parker.com/ead/cm2.asp?cmid=3903&

The Reiff & Nestor catalog has great pipe thread info. Sorry, I couldn't find any thing
on their website.

McMaster is an unlikely source of info but I found some good charts
for spiral retaining ring grooves on their website. They started carrying CAD drawings of alot of products on the website also


http://www.mcmaster.com/itmLookup/itmLookup.aspx?

Edit: Once again I screwed up a McMaster link, if you click on a specific product they will have links to drawings and info for it. Sorry.

They have a new web site with PDF downlaod able catalogs. A 29 page bending guide that gives info on making the items that may be done only on occasion. So you can't remember which step comes next. you can modify it for your style of bender.
http://www.diacro.com/catalogs.html

Be sure to check out the Urethane catalogs for info on no mar die stock.
For a ton of tool manuals whether operating or seeing how they work. Most of the Harbor Fright tools are the small type design as sold else where. The manuals will give basic trouble shooting info
http://www.harborfreight.com/

MacMasters-Carr has a staggering number of charts explanations on al most everything in their catalog.

Think your scrap dealer is giving you the short end.
here is all the types and current going rates.

may i suggest that a stiky be added so this thread stays at the top of the page, maby just below the how to post pictures thread. that way if some one needs info in the future they don't have to do a search every time.

Here is a plastic source with a number of on line video's
http://www.tapplastics.com/index.php?
This is the site for muscle wires
http://musclewires.com/shapememoryalloys.shtml
When your use the link on their pages it will take you to another site page look for muscle wires on the left side and click on that. through out the various pages are PDF's about the wire and its use.
