RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

SAE Bolts, Nuts & Washers

This table presents the most commonly used small to medium size varieties of SAE hardware. There are two general types of SAE bolts (sometimes referred to as machine screws). UNF (fine thread pitch) has more threads per inch than the same diameter bolt in the UNC (coarse thread pitch). Nut dimensions are maximums per SAE. Washer dimensions are for the regular size (vs. narrow or wide). All dimensions are in inches. Be aware that a search for hardware dimensions will yield variable results since many reported dimensions are manufacturers' production values, not necessarily the official SAE/ANSI values.

Note: For critical applications, consult official SAE/ANSI manuals to obtain dimensions.
