Easier than that. Just use Neverseize(sp)
SS to SS under tension, or just tight fitting will have the nut bonding 
to the bolt.
With no preventative You have to twist the bolt off.  That can be a real 
knuckle buster with 3/8ths or 1/2". Been there, done that.

It is something I have done for years with no trouble.Opinions welcome.JIM, W4QBQ
