Re: What Is The Material Spec For "Lag Screw"?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Bill, perhaps it's no wonder you can't find it.  NDS points to ANSI/ASME
B18.2.1.  The excerpt of same produced in the IFI "Fastener Standards 6th
Ed.says  "11.  Material.  Chemical and mechanical requirements shall be as
agreed upon by the manufacturer and purchaser."

I don't know where else to look either.
