Re: Welding Anchor Bolts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The anchor bolts are there to keep the sill plate in place and prevent lateral
movement of the wall off of the foundation. The governing element is the
bearing of the wood sill on the bolt and the shear of the bolt, not a tension
force where the nut application would be critical. In this case it would seem
that welding of the nut to the bolt to prevent it from coming loose would be
applicable and not detrimental to the expected use of the bolt.
