What Is British Standard Whitworth?

Devised in 1841 by Sir Joseph Whitworth, the imperial threadform British Standard Whitworth was the first national standard screw thread in the world. The threadform became widely used in the manufacturing of British cars, motorbikes, ships, railways and machinery.
