  Could anyone tell me:
           Major diameter(min, max),pitch diameter(min. max)
        1 29/32" *24 UNS-3A
     I search for this but cannot find in:
             ASME/ANSI B1.1-1989
  Furthermore, Is the profile angle 55 deg or 60 deg ?

RE: screw

Your 1 29/32 (1.906) does not appear to be a standard thread size.  Neither does the 24 pitch match the bolt size.  I have not run across any UNS-3A standards.  Everything about this is strange unless it may be a soft converted metric?

You might go to www.boltscience.com and ask them.  Mr. Eccles has many tables on his web site that you might find something close.

RE: screw

All UN, UNS, UNEF, etc are all 60 degree.

UNS means that the thread dimensions are calculated according to ANSI/ASME B1.1 Section 5 and 8, but the designer is supposed to call out the Major Diameter, Pitch Diameter and Minor Diameter since the engagement is a factor in the answer since as the engagement increases, the tolerances loosen.  As a result of all of this with the fine threads, minor variations from the required dimensions may have a major impact on strength, and reverse engineering is potentially dangerous.  Also plating must be considered properly.  With those warnings out of the way the dims are:

Major   1.9062 / 1.8990

Pitch   1.8792 / 1,8764

Minor   1.8494 Min (Max is ref only .18611)

Pitch and minor diameter are reduced as follows:
Engagement  Change
1/4"        .0006
1/2"        .0008
1"          .0011
 or .001125 x sqrt(engagement (in))

RE: screw

Looking for the diameter of metric taptite screws?
