Re: [DML] Modified Trailing Arms For 1/2" Bolts



I really don't want to do TABs again but if flashing my stainless in front of them might help motivate them to sell the community some "Toby Tabs" I just might drop by their shop one day.

Toby claimed at the time that his Inconel 718 bolts were nearly 220,000 lbs tensile strength, 200,000 lbs yield strength, but Inconel 718 bar stock does not come up that high in online searches. He included a lab test sheet with his bolts, but mine is long gone (anybody save theirs?).
