All camera manuals have a section dealing with their magazines. All major manufactures (Arri, Panavision, Aaton) have manuals on their website's but for older ones just google it and you'll probably find it.

Also, forum rules say you need to use your real full name, homes.

The ASC manual has quite a few threading diagrams as well.

The Pro Cameraman's Handbook hasn't been updated in a while, so there's a good chance you can find a cheap one at a used bookstore in your neighborhood. I got mine for $15 :)
