## Are m10 and 3/8 the same?

Since 10 mm is bigger than 3/8″, the simple answer is, “NO”. But you CAN drill the hole out to either 25/64″ (for 3/8-24) or letter “X” (. 397″)( for 3/8-16), and tap for a Helicoil.

## What are standard bolt sizes?

Typically, machine bolt sizes range from 1/4″ to 1 1/4″ for square heads and 3/8″ to 1 3/4″ in diameter for hex heads, and lengths span from about 3/4″ to 18″ for square and 6 1/2″ to 24″ for hex heads. Measure length from under the head to the threaded end of the bolt.

## How do you determine bolt size?

To measure the diameter of screws and bolts, you measure the distance from the outer thread on one side to the outer thread on the other side. This is called the major diameter and will usually be the proper size of the bolt.

## How do you read bolt sizes?

How to Read Screw SizesRead the first letter of the size. This the largest diameter: the measurement of the screw on the thread. … Read the second number. This is either the number of threads per unit of the distance between threads; also known as the “thread pitch”. … Read the third number, generally the one following the “x.”

## What are M bolt sizes?

The “M” designation for metric screws indicates the nominal outer diameter of the screw thread, in millimetres (e.g., an M6 screw has a nominal outer diameter of 6 millimetres).

## What does m10 mean?

means a 10M10 means a 10 millimeter outer diameter for the bolt or whatever piece it is; M12 means 12 millimeters. The part after the ‘x’ is the pitch — how many mm a thread is wide. To figure out which you have, you can measure the existing part with calipers and a thread gauge.

## How can you tell if a bolt is metric or standard?

Telling the difference between a metric and imperial bolt is easy. If the bolt has lines on the head its standard or imperial. If the bolt has numbers on the head then its metric. These markings indicate how strong the bolt is they call this tensile strength.
