acme threads

Ya nice pic, those are acme allright. 28 degree per side as opposed to a sharp V thread which are 30 degree per side or 60 included.I guess the pitch
(tpi) is the same standard. 18 being fine thread and 11 being coarse.

Duane867 I'll have a look again but I don't think they are. If they are it's very minute.

You can tell by looking at the arbor. If it is flat along its length, with the threads cutting into the flat, it is ACME. That is so it is the same diameter along the entire length, and a dado set will attach snugly.


Can we get a discount from Wile. E. Coyote?
