Back about the turn of the Century, no not the recent one, the one before the internet, governments around the world took notice and started to get worried about, well, so much screwing and it was all incompatible. Thus was formed the International Committee to Standardize the Screw.  They had meetings, they published papers, wrote everything down, and after several years, never really did anything. After a time Congress decided to no longer fund anyone to attend their meetings. Well, I think it was the Navy that decided it was still something that was needed and funded a representative to attend the meetings.

Christpher Spencer...yeah that one...apparently invented or developed the automatic screw machine many years after the rifle.  He lived long enough that his son even took the father flying, and maybe even taught him to fly an airplane!

My place of employment does a lot of business with their Rohnert Park facility making parts for some of their linear motors.

But is it a turn for the better or a turn for the worse?

No Wallaby, but you might be a seven sided cross-threaded nut.

Well, this is Wallaby Jack.

 

Even a seven sided cross-threaded nut can be loosened with a pair of Vice Grips and a Monkey Wrench.

 

A Hot Wrench would make it quicker, but I can't find a recipe for the liquor.

Now we just need America to go metric and drop UNC, UNF, UNEF, UNS and whatnot and GET WITH THE PROGRAM!!!!!! :D

 

You ain't had fun until you have to 3-Wire a M385 X 0.5 thread while the part is still in the lathe.   Threaded length was only about 12mm.   Used .018" wires and 40 inch calipers.  Fun times.
