    Quick References for the homebuilder

    Moderator Note: Posts have a 48h expiration on editability, and Winginit has asked me to insert the following text for him, as an aid to anyone reviewing this thread:

    Thanks to Choppergirl a High Resolution version of most of the Reference Attachments is
    now available. Just Scroll down to post #20 for a link to the High Resolution charts. Also
    Ron Wanttaja has graciously made his Shop Sheets information available at
    http://www.wanttaja.com/shopsheets/index.html Thanks to both of them. Winginit
    End Note

    ----------------------------

    I am going to post some references that should be useful to homebuilders. You can print them and put them on your wall or save them in your computer. A company named MSC sells all this stuff and furnishes them in a free catalog. Not sure if the printed version is still available but if it is, get one for your shop. I have ordered from them many times in the past and always had quick and great service. They aren't paying me. I'm just posting this to help builders and hopefully generate them some additional business because they go to the trouble to provide this info.

    Re: Quick References for the homebuilder

    While I laud your intentions and effort, the HBA server is downsampling these to a smaller size, which is what it's set up to do. The smaller type is pretty much illegible.

    You'd do better to scan them to PDF and put them up in a folder on Dropbox (or Box, Drive, OneDrive, etc.), and put a public link to that folder in your post here.

    Re: Quick References for the homebuilder

    I can read it accurately enough, but they're fuzzy enough that I don't want to. I have found Pocket Ref and Machinery's Handbook handy for mechanical design work. The former, at least, is inexpensive. Also, McMaster Carr has drawings on line for many of their parts, which may be helpful.

    I don't recall the name or where to get one, but there used to be one of those paper/plastic sliding doohickies which, if you picked a thread size, would give you all sorts of numbers, including things like what size hole to use for tapping, dimensions of nuts and washers, etc.
