Handy Helpers!
Tap Drill Sizes (inch) for a 75% Thread
In general, you can find the tap-drill for any size 60 degree thread, subtract one pitch length from the major diameter.

Formula: Major Dia. minus One Pitch Length equals tap-drill size

English Example for 3/8-16 thread: .375 - .0625 = .3125 tap-drill (5/16)

Metric Example for M6 X 1 thread: 6mm - 1mm = 5mm tap-drill
