Default Fasteners, washers, split locks, thru holes and drill bit sizes

This is a chart I use at work all the time. It provides you with dimensions for screws, nuts, washers, and split locks. It also helps you size thru holes and countersunk holes. (I will re-size this and post a better copy.)



Here are all your basic drill bit sizes:



And for those that hate to do math:



This is the most useful conversion app I've ever used. Download it and never screw up a conversion again. It's free.

You can search for and select the exact type of hardware you need, and the final product page lists all the part dimensions for it.

We have MCmaster at work too (lots of conduit and electrical stuff), they have everything. Good source.

The convert doesn't have the conversion for electricity. (watts, volts, amps, etc)
Not that I need it (that formula is programed in now LOL) but it is a basic fundamental conversion for a lot of people.

What about a list of common Subaru fasteners along with head sizes. I think Subaru uses JIS standards so the pitches are not always the same as UNF and UNC:

Head Size X pitch
10mm M6x1
12mm M8x1.25
14mm M10x1.25*
17mm M12x1.25
17mm MXXxXXX (oil pan plug)
19mm M12x1.25 (lugnuts)
19mm M14x1.5





*though some may be M10x1.5....studs in rear diff are coarser on the thread that goes into the diff I think


Please add to and/or correct me and I'll update it for other people's reference.

I didn't do that because I figured for new fabrication work there would be more options for standard hardware. I know the metric is out there but for new work I would just use standard fasteners. You'll find more options locally and people are more likely to have standard drill bits.

These tables are useful for matching up JIS fasteners with their metric equivalents:
