## What is the thread size of a bolt?

Bolt Size Threads Per Inch (TPI)
3/4″ 10 16
7/8″ 9 14
1″ 8 12*

## How many threads are in a bolt of an inch?

Imperial measurement fasteners are classified by threads per inch, so a 1/4-20 bolt has 20 threads per inch (TPI), while a 10-24 screw has 24 threads per inch.

Common threads per inch sizes are: 4, 4-1/2, 5, 5-1/2, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 18, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 48, 56, 72, 80. Most fasteners fall into coarse and fine categories, but there is also extra fine and other designations.

### What are threads per inch?

TPI stands for Threads Per Inch, a count of the number of threads per inch measured along the length of a fastener. TPI is used only with American fasteners. Metric Fasteners use a thread Pitch. In general, smaller fasteners have finer threads, so the thread count is higher.

### What is a 1/2 inch thread?

BSP Thread Size Outside Diameter mm / inch TPI
1/8 Inch BSP 9.7 mm / 0.383″ 28
1/4 Inch BSP 13.16 mm / 0.518″ 19
3/8 Inch BSP 16.66 mm / 0.656″ 19
1/2 Inch BSP 20.99 mm / 0.825″ 14

What is the thread length of a bolt?

Standard Thread Length. Bolt lengths ≤ 6″: Thread length = (2 X diameter) + 1/4″ Bolt lengths > 6″: Thread length = (2 X diameter) + 1/2″ Note: Most stock hex bolts 10″ and longer will have 6″ of thread.

#### How do you calculate thread pitch?

The pitch is the distance between the threads; you can determine this number by measuring the number of threads per inch (or centimeter) on the screw, then divide one by the number of threads (pitch = 1 ÷ number of threads per inch or cm). For example, if a screw has eight threads per inch, the pitch is 1/8.

#### How many metric threads per inch?

Metric threads are measured by the diameter of the threaded portion and by how far apart the threads are. The common metric thread 10mm x 1.0 indicates a 10mm o.d. on the threaded portion and a thread pitch of 1.0mm, which is one thread every millimeter. Since there are 25.4 millimeters in 1 inch, that works out to 25.4 threads per inch.

What is a bolt thread pitch?

The thread pitch of a bolt is the difference between threads measured in millimeters along the fastener. To calculate this manually, you can count the threads of the bolt on the entire shank and then divide the total length of the shaft by this number.
