30422Re: screw loading
- Feb 1, 2012Machinist handbook has a whole chapter on the subject, unfortunately no simple chart. As I recall, the rule of thumb is 3 full threads of engagement.
As far as actual load, I think it's more of a question of what you are threading into. Aluminum will hold less of course than steel. If you have a copy of MH, there are equations in there for calculating minimum engagement and max load.
