Hello folks,
I am looking for a simple instruction on how a thread should be calibrated and or verified on a by annual basis. One example being a thread gage manufactured by Grenfield a M8 x 1. 25-6H Go PD 7.188 NoGo PD 7. 348.
Hope someone can help!
Thanks,
TC

Send it out to a qualified, duly accredited calibration house. I don't mean this as any kind of affront or insult, but if you have to ask the question it means that you're probably not qualified to do the calibration. Some things are best left to the experts.

If anyone has an example thread gage calibration procedure, it will be appreciated.

Re: Thread Gage Calibration/Verification "NEEDED"

Didn't find any examples of "Procedures" but found this website which is also a database and has procedures:

http://www.jblsys.com/GAGEtrak/CalPro/CALPRO.HTM

No pricing I could find in regards to software.

Maybe cover BradM, might have some type of procedure since that was his business before.

Re: Thread Gage Calibration/Verification "NEEDED"

Hey Coury!

Thread gauges are a bit out of my expertise. Wes Richardson is fairly familar with them I think.

Not sure if the OP has access to GIDEP. I am sure they would have some procedures.

I believe thread gauges have previous threads that may be of assistance.

Confused about Calibration Tolerances of Plug Gauge, Ring Gauge & Snap Gauge

Suggestions for thread rings and plugs - Old and not used for years

There are other threads here and on the ASQ site.

I guess since you owned and operated a Calibration house (I believe) in your years before your current status, you may have been able to help with this one. But since thread gages are a special niche maybe someone else might be able to help.

Thanks for the connecting threads. I checked out GIDEP and didn't really find something, but maybe I didn't look in the right place.

Hopefully Wesley will visit soon.
