In the industry most drilled hole tolerances are for the hole sizeExceptnaturally when the hole gets real small (like for a no screw etc) This size
The hole sizes specified by the wizard correspond to the actual hole sized drilled in the part in preparation for tappingA screw has a major diameter of but if you were to drill a hole then you wouldn t have any material left to create the threads in.
I just need to know the size hole that I can be assured of a free fit using a screwit seems I should go with (If · I were drilling it myself I would start small and work up until I found a large enough size but I need to get it right the first time in my gerber).
