Posted January 31, 2012 at 05:00 pm by Jase Glenn
We’ve all been there: your about to put the finishing touches on your latest project and you realize your short a bolt. You run to your spares drawer, only to discover nothing has been labelled. You look in vain, hoping that what you’ve found is the right size. You handle several different bolts before finally selecting one you hope is correct, you rush back only to discover it’s the wrong size.
This all could have been prevented with Bolt Sizer. A free app created by adecker, the premise is simple: put an American coin next an English or Metric bolt and Bolt Sizer will tell you what size it is. According to adecker the app:
- Works on english, metric, hex and box heads.
– Also sizes the shafts
– Allows for fine-tuning to increase accuracy
So head on over to the thread here and give it whirl. Your tools will thank you for it.
