The pin taper thread reminded me of two online calculators I have pinned and use all the time.
I thought I pass them along.
I find them a cut above most in clarity and convenience.

I am setting up my second build and tried cutting slots rather than slotted pins, 5%. One was difficult to keep in, think I made it too big. I am going to study these calculators and see what I can learn.

I am using a jigsaw blade and find it cumbersome. What are others using?
