If you are out in your shop and need one quickly, they are in most of the larger repair manuals (Chilton's or Motor's) in the back. Or atleast they used to be. Haven't bought one in a few years, so they may have cut cost and left them out.

And thank you Grouch. Those dang charts are something you never quite seem to have on hand when you need one.

Machine tool suppliers and salesholes used to hand them out as freebies. I doubt they do anymore. We had one put out by Brown and Sharpe that was huge, on heavy stock, with a no smear finish. It had tap and drill sizes, decimal equivalents, and metric equivalents. I should have kept it when the shop closed.
