Footnotes

1. Single depth of thread = 0.6495/N where N is threads per inch
For N=8, Single depth=0.6495/8=0.0812
2. Feed depth with compound at 30° = sec30x(single depth of thread) {=1.1547x(0.6495/N) or 0.75/N}
For N=8, Feed depth =1.1547x(0.6495/8) {=1.1547x0.0812=0.0937}, or Feed depth=0.75/8=0.0937
