It is only when they throw in the UNcommon pitch that things get bad.... there was one on VW's which was that way.... why they did that I will never figure out...
I figured it was taking coals to Newcastle to tell you how to figure the pitch of a thread, but I figured that somebody might find it useful. If it's handy, I'll always use a thread pitch gauge anyway, but I've counted threads in a pinch, too.

Do glance over the technical index at Maryland Metrics some time, though - you might find something interesting - "Using USA Coin Measures As Emergency Measurement Tools" ? I have purchased from them, too, when I needed some British Standard taps and dies.
