As a token bone they give us the inner ring of metric numbers too small to read but there nonetheless.
    I'm thinking that if the Canadian Models were truly equipped to go anywhere they would have pontoons I think I have some Witworth hanging around.
    To save a click-
    The Whitworth thread was the world's first national screw thread standard,[1] devised and specified by Joseph Whitworth in 1841. Until then, the only standardization was what little had been done by individual people and companies, with some companies' in-house standards spreading a bit within their industries. Whitworth's new standard specified a 55° thread angle and a thread depth of 0.640327p and a radius of 0.137329p, where p is the pitch. The thread pitch increases with diameter in steps specified on a chart.


    Whatever it takes.

    I still have my Whitworth adjustable wrench made by Crescent and my Whitworth pliers made by Channellock.
