I also have included the chart for drill bit size per tap size.
1 4 bolt drill and tap size.
Locate the hole with the tape measure and mark the holes location with the scribe.
For both of these rules of thumb 85 90 and major minus pitch the tap drill size yielded is not necessarily the only possible one but it is a good one for general use.
As a rule of thumb for metric threads the tapping drill can be calculated by subtracting the pitch from the diameter of the thread.
Tap size drilling chart provides a list of standard size taps specifying the diameter and thread spacing for fractional metric and screw sizes.
How do you measure a tap for a drill.
The 85 and 90 rules works best in the range of 1 4 1 in 6 4 25 4 mm the sizes most important on many shop floors.

Eg for an m5x0.
For imperial inch threads the tapping drill size is calculated in the same way diameter minus pitch.
For a 1 4 20 bolt the optimal drill bit size is 7 or 13 64th.
