    Default Metalworking Charts

    Looking for a place that sells wall charts for metal working. Stuff like steel weight per square foot, threading, tap&die, drilling, decimal equivalents, stuff like that.

    steel weight per square foot when buying dropoffs and such.

    5 pounds per 1/8" thick by 1 square foot. It's easy to extrapolate in your head when you get that close. That's how I bought drop-offs from a jobber shop that had no scale but would sell new drop-offs at scrap price. I always took any doubts or errors to there favor for the privelage of working with clean nice metal

    I think Starrett has a decimal equivalent chart and a tap drill chart available "on request."

    There is annother one, a drill and tap chart, that gave several different drill sizes and thread percent for each drill size, but I can't find it.

    Hope these will be of use,

    Here you go more charts and stuff to print out then one will probably ever need. http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/ Plus they have them in palm/pda form to. Great for taking with you.
    Little machine shop had a very nice 8x10 two sided tap and drill chart inch/metric. Travers has a pocket sized two side one and Sherline has the in both versions at the shows.

    I have the BIG old Starrett wall chart ( http://catalog.starrett.com/catalog/...sp?GroupID=273 )and it looks real cool hanging on the wall next to my desk but, I use the pocket one ( http://catalog.starrett.com/catalog/...sp?GroupID=591 , notice it says FREE!) nearly all of the time because it is right there in my drill and tap drawer where I need it.
