Yes they do I bought one a while back but there are hundreds of different types of threads in there and I wasn't sure how it all worked,Do Zeus still do their guide? Just googled it. They have it on amazon for £5.20. Zeus engineering charts. Pocket size and tough waxed paper. I've had mine for 40 years.
Thanks for the info very helpful I'm hoping the m numbers are metric do you have any sizes for Beuscher and King
Thanks that Tracy tools is a great resource they seem to stock just about everything I have never managed to find anything like that on my searchesI bought some individual taps/dies from this company recently, good service and good prices:
But there's also: "TapsandDies"-TAPS DIES DIENUTS,tap sets tap die sets,tap holders die holders,lefthand HSS Taps+Dies CSTaps&Dies BSW tapdie BSF tapsdies BA tap die, BSCycle taps_dies, Model Engineer taps&dies UNC taps+dies UNF tap_die,Brass tap&die BSP tapanddie BSPT ta
Looking at a thread wouldn't be enough, you would have to measure the thread pitch and the Outer Diameter. Then you can look up what thread has those characteristics.I have just been looking through my Zeus book and it doesn't seem to help you ascertain what thread you have when your looking at a rod with a thread on the end or am I missing something.
Yes the M is for metric. I have a Buescher in the shop that I can remove a rod and check the thread size, but I am almost certain it is 3 - 48 since that size was common on U.S. made saxophones. The thing I find interesting is how Cannonball tries to be different that other brands from Taiwan by using larger hinge rods, and using standard threads instead of metric.Thanks for the info very helpful I'm hoping the m numbers are metric do you have any sizes for Beuscher and King
cor blimey!!! was just talking to someone the other day about the Zeus books!! I used to be in engineering and the very first paperwork we were given told to acquire were Zeus books and Log books.......pre calculator! THey had every thread you needed for the defence industry and crossed over from the myriad of older versions to the newfangled metric systems, even had French reverse threads!Do Zeus still do their guide?
