  • The British thread system is fractionally based, but all thread vee angles are different than the American fractionally or decimally based threads. Most thread per inch values are different than in the American System.
  • Taper pipe thread major diameters are measured at the gauge point.
  • (H)= BSPT copper pipe thread.
  • Dimensions within ( ) in the M FINE column are obsolete French or Japanese threads.
  • Dimensions within ( ) in the BSW column are obsolete British coarse threads.
  • The 6.3 mm dimension; marked GM is an obsolete General Motors thread.
