1/2" or 5/8" SS machine bolts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am looking for shear capacities and availability of 1/2" dia. or 5/8" dia flat head slotted SS machine screws 5/8" long.  McMaster Carr tells me that they only have the 1/2" diameter, 1" long and they cost about 90 cents each. 
They also tell me that the minimum tensile strength of the 18-8 SS is 80 ksi.  If I use AISC's 0.17Fu "for threaded parts of materials not listed", will I be OK?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
