Accordingly, what diameter is a #6 screw?

**Screws** have three basic measurements: gauge, threads per inch, and shaft length in inches. So, you may also see a measurement like **6**-32 x 1 1/2". This means it's a #**6 diameter**, with 32 threads per inch (almost double the normal thread count as a standard wood **screw**) and an inch and a half long.

Similarly, what is the diameter of a 6 32 screw? Fastener and Screw / Bolt Design, Formula and Calculations

Screw Size | Class Thread | Major Diameter |

6-32 | 3A | 0.1380 |

6-40 | 2A | 0.1380 |

6-40 | 3A | 0.1380 |

In respect to this, what size are sheet metal screws?

**Sheet metal screws** commonly range in **size** from #2 to #14 in diameter; some head styles are also available in 5/16" and 3/8" **sizes**. Typical lengths, specified in fractional inches, span from 3/16" to 3 1/2".

Is a #8 or #10 screw bigger?

Machine **screws** are often found in sizes of: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, **8**, **10**, 12, 14—the **larger** the number, the **larger** the **screw**.
