British Standard Whitworth Thread Chart Pdfl
British Standard Whitworth (BSW) is an imperial-unit-based screw thread standard, devised and specified by Joseph Whitworth in 1841 and later adopted as a British Standard. It was the world's first national screw thread standard, and is the basis for many other standards, such as BSF, BSP, BSCon, and BSCopper.

The Whitworth thread was the world's first national screw thread standard, devised and specified by Joseph Whitworth in 1841. Until then, the only standardization was what little had been done by individual people and companies, with some companies' in-house standards spreading a bit within their industries. Whitworth's new standard specified a 55 thread angle and a thread depth of 0.640327p and a radius of 0.137329p, where p is the pitch. The thread pitch increases with diameter in steps specified on a chart.
With the adoption of BSW by British railway companies, many of which had previously used their own standards both for threads and for bolt head and nut profiles, and the growing need generally for standardisation in manufacturing specifications, it came to dominate British manufacturing.
The British Standard Fine (BSF) standard has the same thread angle as the BSW, but has a finer thread pitch and smaller thread depth. This is more like the modern "mechanical" screw[clarification needed] and was used for fine machinery and for steel bolts.
The British Standard Cycle (BSC) standard which replaced the Cycle Engineers' Institute (CEI) standard was used on British bicycles and motorcycles. It uses a thread angle of 60 compared to the Whitworth 55 and very fine thread pitches.
The British Association screw thread (BA) standard is sometimes classed with the Whitworth standard fasteners because it is often found in the same machinery as the Whitworth standard. However it is actually a metric based standard that uses a 47.5 thread angle and has its own set of head sizes. BA threads have diameters of 6 mm (0BA) and smaller, and were and still are particularly used in precision machinery.
The Whitworth 55 angle remains commonly used today worldwide in form of the 15 British standard pipe threads defined in ISO 7, which are commonly used in water supply, cooling, pneumatics, and hydraulic systems. These threads are designated by a number between 1/16 and 6 that originates from the nominal internal diameter (i/d) in inches of a steel pipe for which these threads were designed. These pipe thread designations do not refer to any thread diameter.
Pipe thread is also different. The standard tapered pipe thread in the US is the NPT or National Pipe Thread. The British use the BSP or British Standard Pipe thread. Although similar, again, they should NOT, under any circumstances, be interchanged. The sad part of this thread confusion is the fact so many classic British cars, motorcycles, and yes, even airplanes have been butchered over the years by those not conversant with these thread systems (detailed later in this article).
British Standard Fine (BSF) is a screw thread form, as a fine-pitch alternative to British Standard Whitworth (BSW) thread. It was used for steel bolts and nuts on much British machinery, including cars, prior to adoption of Unified, and later Metric, standards. For highly stressed conditions, especially in motorcycles, a finer thread, British Standard Cycle (BSC), was used as well.

Whitworth set himself the task of devising a standard for threads. He also collected bolts from all over England, noting which sizes had shown to be most useful, and the results of various thread forms. In 1841 he proposed as a standard a thread form with an included angle of 55, and the tops and bottoms of the threads rounded with a radius equal to 0.1373 times the pitch.
These are pipe threads where pressure-tightness is made through the mating of two threads together. They always use a taper male thread but can have either parallel or taper female threads. (International standards require all female threads to be parallel.)
Sir Joseph Whitworth proposed this thread in 1841. This was the first standardised thread form. The form of the thread is shown in the diagram. The principal features of the British Standard Whitworth (BSW) thread form are that the angle between the thread flanks is 55 degrees and the thread has radii at both the roots and the crests of the thread. The relevant standard for this thread form is the British Standard BS 84 - 2007. The thread form is now redundant and has been replaced by Unified and Metric threads but there are many applications in which it is still used. The British Standard Fine (BSF) thread has the same profile as the BSW thread form but was used when a finer pitch was required for a given diameter. If p = pitch of the thread d = depth of the thread r = radius at the top and bottom of the threads then: d = 0.640327 p r = 0.137329 p

BSPP Thread Dimensions Calculator shows dimensions, tolerances and designation forfastening pipe threads for thread sizes from 1/16 to 6 according to ISO 228 - 1 standard. The thread form follows the British Standard Whitworth thread.
Threads are standardized to ensure compatibility and ease of maintenance. Identifying the thread type for existing and new applications is necessary to guarantee a proper joint connection. Unfortunately, there are a wide variety of thread standards throughout the world and this article aims to talk about the main types and how they are different.
The BSP, or Whitworth thread, is a family of thread standards used internationally, except in the United States. This thread form has a 55 V-thread with rounded roots and crests, as seen in Figure 2. For a thread that conforms to BSP, the major diameter of the pipe thread is slightly smaller than the actual outer diameter of the pipe, and the minor diameter will be very close to, but smaller than, the inside diameter of the female thread. There are two types of BSP threads: BSPP and BSPT
In the United States and Canada, the Unified Thread Standard (UTS) describes a standard thread form and series, as well as the allowances, tolerances, and designations applied to screw threads. Bolts, nuts, and other threaded fasteners are standardized according to this standard.
British Association standard screw threads, or BA screw threads, are a largely obsolete set of small screw threads, the largest being 0BA at 6 mm diameter. They were used for miniature instruments and modelling.BA threads are still used in some precision instruments, such as optics and moving-coil meters, the angle of the thread is 47.5and the depth of thread is 0.6 times the pitch with rounded tops and bottoms.
British Standard Whitworth (BSW) is an imperial-unit-based screw thread standard, Whitworth's new standard specified a 55 thread angle, in form of the 15 British standard pipe threads defined in ISO 7, which are commonly used in water supply, cooling, pneumatic, and hydraulic systems. Two types of threads are distinguished:
British Standard Pipe (BSP) technical standards for screw threads that has been adopted internationally for interconnecting and sealing pipes and fittings by mating an external (male) thread with an internal (female) thread. It has been adopted as standard in plumbing and pipe fitting.
Cycle Engineers' Institute (CEI) or British Standard Cycle (BSC) , which replaced the Cycle Engineers' Institute (CEI) standard was used on British bicycles and motorcycles. It uses a thread angle of 60compared to the Whitworth 55and very fine thread pitches.
The major difference between metric and standard is in how threads are specified. Standard fasteners are either Unified National Coarse Thread (UNC) or Unified National Fine Thread (UNT). Standard metric threads, meaning ISO metric threads in this case, are not specified this way, though they are comparable to UNC threads.
Standard metric screw threads are designated by pitch in millimeters (mm). This is the distance measured between the peaks of two adjacent threads. ASTM fastener standards measure threads by TPI: threads per inch. You literally just count the number of threads that cover a one-inch distance.
The final step in identifying your thread type is to identify the thread type standard. NPT, PT, and G are all examples of thread type standards. Gather the information from the previous steps and compare it with the measurements in the tables below. You can also download all this information in a convenient PDF file.
The ISO metric thread is a worldwide standardized thread and is probably the best known and most used in Europe. It is also known as a standard thread. Pitch and diameter are measured in millimetres. The code letter for the metric thread is M. The flank angle is 60 degrees. Furthermore, this type of thread is precisely defined in DIN 13 and DIN 14. DIN is the German Institute for Standardization.
The trapezoidal thread owes its name to the profile of the threads, which have the shape of a symmetrical trapezoid. The trapezoidal thread bears the identification letters Tr and has a flank angle of 30 degrees. There are three different standards. DIN 103 defines the ISO metric trapezoidal thread. In DIN 380 the flatter trapezoidal thread. And finally in DIN 30295 the rounded trapezoidal thread.

The British Standard Whitworth is on the one hand a standard thread and on the other hand a screw thread. It is often abbreviated with the abbreviation W or WW. In terms of meaning and use, it is equivalent to the ISO metric thread. It is specified in inches and has a flank angle of 55 degrees.
