RE: Welding on bolts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Now, on a base plate connection, 2 of the 6 botls are broken(due to the
welding process) and almost all the nuts are 'distorted'. I am thinking of
using hilti to installed 4 larger bolts to strengthen the base plate
connection. Are there any other more efficient ways to compensate damges
done to the base plate connection? thanks.

Along the same line...

I work in an industry where the standard anchor bolt is A316 stainless
steel.  How do you feel about crimping the threads each side of a nut
that's embedded in the concrete for anchorage?

P.S.  The wheel, huh?  Did you, perhaps, develop the triangular wheel? 
Y'know it has one less bump per revolution ;-)
