2. You Don't Need Trig: Here's an easy method of finding coordinates for 3, 4, 6 and 8 hole bolt circles.

3. Simple Tap Drill Formula: The easiest tap drill formula ever. Most of us have a tap drill chart for normal taps, such a 1/4-20 which calls for a #7 drill for 70% thread, but how about a 1/4-40 tap? This guide shows you how.

4. Temperature Color Chart: When trying to heat metals, this approximate high temperature/color chart will help. Heated metal radiates or gives off energy. The hotter the metal, the more energy it gives off. Much of this radiated energy is in the form of light.

5. How do I Harden Steel? How do I harden/temper metal? Heat Treating is a "huge" subject, and depends on the metal, and the intended use. Most of the time, this question is asked regarding steel, so we'll give a brief description of that.
