DescriptionManufacturers of turning squares have had difficulty finding the best combination of bolt and square sizes for producing squares most efficiently. A computer simulation technique has been developed for inexpensively detemining the best combination of bolt and square size. Ranges of bolt dimeters to achieve a stated level of yield are given. The manufacturer can choose which bolt sizes to use for sawing squares based on sawing method used, the range of bolt diameters available, and the size of square to be produced.
