Re: looking for astm A31 Rivets?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A couple years ago we were advised at ASTM that it would be wise for us to
drop A31 and A502 because purportedly nobody was using them.  Of course, as
soon as we did so ---- we got some letters from a few non-too-happy people.

Within the 'rationale' portion of our subsequent reinstatement ballots was
mention of some names that may be of some help to you.  One person was a
Engineering Manager from Signal Metal Industries who were reportedly a user.
Another name was Jay-Cee Sales, reportedly a significant supplier of these
rivets.  I am not familiar with either of these companies, but perhaps you
will have some luck searching for them on-line.

Good luck,
