oh no,
it’s 3/8‑inch diameter thread – British Standard Whitworth (BSW), 16 tpi.
The Whitworth standard specifies a 55° flank angle (typical of pipe threads)
3/8"-16

They’re sometimes used on 1990-era pinballs to hold the backbox in place.

These will be UNC however - I think that’s a similar threadform to BSW but
you might need to check.On Sat, Aug 20, 2016 at 3:06 PM, Constantin Popp constantin.popp@gmail.com wrote:
