In order for our group to properly meet these requirements, we first had to calculate the depth of a thread and the total infeed of the tool. Calculations 3. Depth of thread d=0.5(P)tan60* d=depth of thread P= pitch of thread d=0.5(1/13)tan60* = 0.067 Total infeed of the tool: 0.0667/COS 29* = 0.076 References 4.
