RE: Short anchor bolt projection

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
There is nothing wrong with this solution either.  I have also welded mild
steel anchor bolts.  

My only point was that the threaded rod is not required to be at the top of
the nut to fully develop the anchor rod.  I actually prefer some projection,
but it is not required.

Regards,
Harold Sprague
