Bill, If the object is simply to hold the template to the bolt, I would suggest putting a nut on each side of the template. Some of the telecommunications tower manufacturers do this. If you must tack weld the nut to the plate: The nut will probably be high in carbon, and you will not get a structural weld without preheating. You generally do not preheat a tack weld. If you preclude preheating, the heat effected zone will not be sufficient to impair the required nut proof load. There are low carbon heavy hex nuts, but they can not develop anything other than a 36 ksi anchor rod. Another alternative is to thread a 3/8" A36 plate washer, weld the plate washer to the template, thread the anchor rod through the template into the plate washer, and thread the heavy hex nut onto the end of the anchor rod.
