Determined by the shape formed by the screw's flank and crest, some common types of screw threads include metric, unified, buttress screw, round and trapezoidal. Other important identifying features of a screw thread include its thread form, thread pitch, major diameter, pitch diameter and minor dia
An Acme screw thread is a type of screw featuring trapezoidal threads, a height half their pitch and an included angle of 29 degrees. They are made in several varieties and are often used in industrial applications requiring heavy torque and power transmission such as lathes, milling machines and pr
Gauge, when applied to sheet metal, is used to determine the thickness of a single piece of sheet metal, with lower numerical values indicative of increasing levels of thickness. There are a number of standard gauge measurements in use, each with slightly different standard thickness.
Rotating a screw advances a spiraled incline into a surface. The head of a screw functions as a lever, while its threading is just a long incline that has been wrapped around a vertical shaft.
The zero error of a micrometer screw gauge occurs when the flat end of the screw touches the stud or anvil, and the gauge reads other than zero. If there is an error, it results in a positive or negative calculation. However, well-calibrated micrometers that are in good condition measure close to ze
Size six ear gauges are considered to be larger than average. Most earlobes are initially pierced with an 18- or 20-gauge needle. Gauge sizes typically range between size 20 and 00, with 00 being the largest.
Typical earrings are gauged at either 18 or 20, depending on the particular piece of jewelry. Although gauge sizes can be as small as 00, 18 and 20 are the most common for new piercings so that a large amount of flesh is not removed from the lobe at once.
Regular earrings are generally 20 gauge, which is 0.0320 inches or 0.812 millimeters in diameter. The needle that does the actual piercing is typically a 14 gauge. In body jewelry, the larger the gauge, the smaller the diameter. Earrings worn on the cartilage of the ear are commonly 16 gauge.
