It's the perfect companion to the Vargus TT-GEN app and can only help people get more comfortable with G76. Keep in mind that this utility is just a simple little tool for properly formatting the output from the data you enter. If you're cutting anything other than a standard UN/ISO Thread, you'll need to know the proper radial thread depth. The input fields will evaluate expressions so if you have a 4-Pitch API thread you can simply type 1/4 in the input field and it will evaluate to 0.25. The Taper angle will also evaluate the trig needed based on the known taper per foot. For an API Thread with 2" of Taper per foot, you can enter atn(1/12) or atan(1/12) to get the actual per-side angle value.

Hi Can anyone tell me how to figure out the specs to machine a .774 Major Dia -32 Thread? Not sure if there is a standard formula to come up with minor dia. and thread pitch to machine and inspect custom threads. If there is, I don't know it. Thanks John
Hi, im just wondering, how to use control compensation of thread mill for threads. I found option of it, but when i activate it, the tool is going straight to the "wall" how to do there an entry radius after perpendicular line and keep starting point at the centre? Im using "bottom to top" btw. Thanks for advice
