  • 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)
          http://www.gewinde-normen.de/en/index.html

          All kinds of useful information

            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.

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

                  I use this program,
                  http://www.wadeproco.com/download.htm

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

                    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.

                            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, ...
