    Default ME Threadpal is amazing!

    I bought the ME Threadpal from MRainey a few years ago (I don't really remember how long exactly). I use it ALL the time. It is so cool to be able to get the measurements over wires for various thread sizes with a few inputs. Amazing! This is not a paid endorsement - I don't even know MRainey except from this forum. For those of you who are like me and do all kinds of threads and don't want to pay for or sit on a bunch of thread gages this is really cool software. Just sayin'

    Like you I've had it for years and use it constantly. Gives me as good as everything I need to know about most threads.

    Yes it is. I've had it for quite a # of years.

    I also put off buying it for years, and then one
    day I had 3 oddball threads to deal with, and I
    broke down and bought it.

    Just the time saved not having to go dig up
    oddball specs, or find the machinery handbook,
    and not having to calculate wires for oddball
    threads etc... It paid for itself within a week.

    Good stuff.

    I have it too - great piece of software, I don't remember the price but it wasn't much and it's worth every penny.

    Only criticism I could come up with is there are a few threads I've had to do that it didn't have. I think metric STI was one of them? Maybe I am remembering wrong....

    You are misremembering.
    Metric STI-s are under the " ISO Threaded Insert 60d" selection.

    And to add, the absolute best feature of ThreadPAL is that the values are not a lookup from a database, but rather calculated based on the appropriate formula.
    IOW, one can come up with any bastard thread ( Like 2.3125-36-UNS ), and still get the perfectly calculated sizes and limits for the male and female members.

    Aye.. ThreadPal and NC-Plot are the cat's meow in a machine shop.

    I've been using ME Consultant Standard for years. Has thread info (but I also have Threadpal), I recommend it, too.
    Planner, estimator, calculators, and reference data for machining.. THanks MRainey!

    Thanks for that tip!

    One other critism I *do* remember because it got me again this week... when I want, say a #10-24 STI thread, it isn't listed as #10 but rather it's a .1900-24 thread. For UN threads, there is the "SIZES" box but it doesn't have the STI sizes listed. Again, maybe I am doing something wrong (which would be great since it means my problem will be solved!)
