## What is a bolt in engineering drawing?

The bolt with a hexagonal head on one side and threaded on the other end is called bolt. The bolt may be threaded throughout its length or partly threaded. Ratio and proportions of hexagonal headed bolt:- Width across flats, W = 1.5 D + 3 mm. Thickness of head, T = 0.8 D.

## How do you draw a nut?

1. First draw a normal oval.
2. Now, using two straight, short lines draw the side surfaces and draw a bottom with a curved line.
3. Now draw a circular hole in the center of the nut and the edges using straight lines.
4. Erase all unnecessary lines, draw out the outlines of the nut and the thread inside the hole.

## What is a spanner?

A wrench or spanner is a tool used to provide grip and mechanical advantage in applying torque to turn objects—usually rotary fasteners, such as nuts and bolts—or keep them from turning.

## How do you calculate nut size?

1. Width of the nut across the flat surface (known as size across flat) = (1.5 × D) + 3 mm.
2. The diameter of the nut = D in mm.
3. The thickness of the nut = (0.8 × D) to D.
4. The radius of front chamfer = 1.5 × D.
5. The angle of chamfer = 30°

## What diameter is M12?

M12 bolts are a metric sized bolt with a 12mm thread diameter.
