Can someone provide a reference for the diametrical interference for a press fit steel pin into aluminum? I need to press a .125" diameter pin into an aluminum extrusion roughly 1/4". All references have an interference of no more than .001 between the hole & pin, but I believe that those values are for materials such as steel into steel.
I want to use standard drill sizes if possible, but the range between sizes is not that small. I was able to press this pin into a hole with .005" interference.

Product engineers and tooling manufacturers have much to gain from 3D printing: By generating low-cost physical prototypes early in the design process, they can check form, fit and function, gauge customer response and compare design iterations without commitment. Download Now
