The size of a metric screw or bolt is specified as diameter, pitch and length, in millimeters (millimeters is abbreviated "mm"). For nuts, size will appear as diameter and pitch. There is an exception though-if pitch isn’t specified, the fastener is coarse threaded.
Wood screw generally has a partially unthreaded shank below the head, the unthreaded portion of the shank is designed to slide through the top board, closest to the screw head, in order that it can be pulled tight to the board to which it is being attached.
Understanding Screw Sizes – Inch Standards Screws with a diameter smaller than 1/4" have a nominal size indicated by a number (e.g. #8 or #10). 1/4" and larger diameters are shown as inches. The diameter refers to the major diameter, or outside edge, of the threads. If the screw size includes a dash with a number following it, that is the.
