Alex, It depends on which stainless steel you are looking at. Many stainless steels are quenched and tempered. If that is the case, the bolts should undergo heat treating following fabrication. Often times materials are fabricated from a given material, then heat treated, quenched and tempered, etc. You might want to consider hot dip galvanized eye bolts, ring bolts, or other forged fittings. Look at the Crosby Group http:\\www.thecrosbygroup.com. If you must fabricate using stainless steels: 1. Select the stainless steel that has the appropriate corrosion resistant chemistry. 2. Evaluate the austenitic alloy for strength. (It is easier than a martinsite alloy.) 3. Fabricate the bolts plus a few more for testing. 4. Have the fabricated bolts quenched and tempered to achieve the appropriate alloy. 5. Test samples to failure that are fabricated the same as the bolts. 6. Test the hardness of all bolts relative to the bolts tested to failure. Regards, Harold Sprague The Neenan Company -----Original Message----- From: Alex C.

I need to bend stainless steel bolts (150 deg) to hook to church bells. The bolts will hold the counter weights. Any suggestions for a better way? Thanks Alex
