  • This is a trapezoidal metric thread. Callout on the data sheet is incorrect. Should read Tr5x2(P1), where Tr designates a trapezoidal thread, and 5 is the nominal diameter in millimeters. When there is no suffix, e.g. Tr5x2, it is a single start thread and the value after the multiplication sign is the pitch. If there is a suffix, e.g. Tr5x2(P1), then the value after the multiplication sign is the lead and the value in the parentheses is the pitch. The number of starts is then calculated by dividing the lead by the pitch, in this case 2.

No public wish lists :(
