Thread Standards

Stub acme threads are similar to standard acme threads except that the thread height is more truncated For example whereas basic thread height for the acme is 5 times the pitch the corresponding height for the stub acme is 3 times the pitch Tensile Stress Area The tensile stress area is computed using the mean of the major or pitch diameter and the minor
