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



Grade 9+ bolts can be purchased very affordably. Even Grade 12.9's are less than $12 apiece.

I do not understand why certain owners are criticizing my latest modification, when by the numbers the bolts I am considering are *STRONGER*, both tensile and yield, than bolts sold by any of the vendors.

Fastenal's imported bolts are less desirable in my book than Made in USA Bowmalloys or Lawsons, if for no other reason than because they are undercutting domestic manufacturing. But then again, Fastenal has taken so much heat over using foreign suppliers that they probably are watching them very closely. If I do end up using Fastenals, I will still continue my quest for a pair of 200,000 lbs bolts.

Toby's bolts are indeed nice, but they have been NLA for nearly a decade now.

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?).
