The writing means little to me too, but the is set of old rusty drawers makes for an interesting study.

PS.......had a look in Google and BSF stands for British Standard Fine and relates to screw sizes.......R.

I think there are some screws here, and BSF is the British Standard Fine thread measure.
Not sure what the others relate to though.
My husband sorts his nails and screws in a plastic container with little drawers in a similar way.
A fine capture Albert

Boxes of screws, the taps are different sizes for making screw holes in metal. Whitworth is a type of screw. Great image. Peter.

Taps are hardened steel threaded shafts, a little like drill bits, for cutting screw threads in metal.
The tool for cutting the thread on a screw is known as a die - see bottom right.
W = Whitworth. I believe Whitworth was the first person to standardise the gauges of screw bolts & nuts and the pitch size / separation of the threads. Whitworth standards were obsolescent by the 1950s but my old Land Rover (made in 1964) still required many Whitworth spanners for maintenance.

BSF means (I think) British Standard Fine; I believe it was used for smaller gauges than Whitworths.

So these drawers contain both an assortment of Whitworth bolts & nuts and the wherewithal to produce more!

AND it's a fascinating collection, carefully photographed, and when the Boss alights upon it I'm sure he will be filled with glee (and/or Guinness) and award you your next year's RAS membership forthwith (as well as putting me right on any mistakes I might have made Blush)

Regards
Bill

I adore these old drawers/storage type things. They remind me of my dad's shed - everything in its place and labelled.

Brings back a lot of memoires, my first job as an apprentice was to sort out the nuts and bolt rack, not only the BSW, BSF, BA, but also UNF, UNC, I soon learnt to tell the differance, between them allSmile

What a superb capture, Albert!
Some interesting comments regarding thread types.
Another couple are buttress threads(used on older vices) and square threads(used on older G cramps).

Yes,Bill has hit the nail on the head here with his descriptions Albert.
Standardised to make sure a male thread would fit into a female thread throughout the world.
Still pretty much standardised that way today I suppose !!
A fine bit of rust for a fine shot.
Mick.

This site is a mine of information.
At first, I thought it looked like containers loaded onto a boatGrin.
I love the history behind this, the orderliness of the owner, and the bits of green remaining where there is no rust.

In the workshop of the Great Central Railway in Loughborough Ann. The Great Central Railway is the UKís only double track, main line heritage railway. Itís the only place in the world where full size steam engines can be seen passing each other Ė just as it was when steam ruled the rails.
