      Trying to get from tribal knowledge to actually formalizing a document on abbreviation conventions for fasteners... (this goes hand in hand with my post on part numbering... etc...
      such as....

      BHCS--Button Head Cap Screw
      SHCS--Socket Head Cap Screw

      if anyone can point me in the direction for a listing that would be helpful.

      Good idea, but I will do it only for the main ones, like Cap screws, pan head screws and counter sunk screws. It might pay to assign a particular letter for each feature and having a particular sequence they are listed.

      You might want to look at Genium Publishing ... this is a huge book of drafting/engineering standards that should be pretty helpful. Or you may want to look at ASME Y14.38 Abbreviations & Acronyms.
