Note :
Nuts shall be furnished without a hole, unless specially order by the purchaser. In some applications it may be desirable to assure that the threaded parts joined by a coupling nut are each engaged to approximately one-half nut thickness. As a visual inspection aid, a hole drilled through one side of the nut is recommended. The hole should be located at mid-nut thickness, and have a diameter of 0.2 to 0.4 times nominal nut size for sizes 21/2 in. and smaller, and 1 in. for sizes 23/4 in. and larger.
