Subject: [TowerTalk] Long Tangent U Bolts

Has anyone used U-Bolt-It in Houston to fabricate longer U bolts than available in standard sizes? If so were they able to deal with small quantities at a reasonable price (like 2 to 4 pieces)?


##  what size  bolt..and how long does it have to be ?      The SS  U bolts I bought from DX eng  have the longest threads I have ever seen on any U bolt.   They provide for bucket loads of
excess thread.   They also come in both  .3125 and also .375 sizes.  You can easily have enough thread to go through say a .75 inch thick AL plate..with plenty left over for the nut etc.
