I have a residential job where the installed anchor bolts (for sill plate
anchorage) are 9/16" diameter at the shank but 5/8" diameter at the threads.
A standard 5/8" nut fits on the bolts.  Bolts with "rolled threads" I guess
they call them (in lieu of cut threads).  AISC A307 - 5/8" diameter bolts
were specified.
Are these anchor bolts acceptable as a 5/8" diameter anchor bolt?  I say no
but am interested in what you guys have to say.
The old "rolled threads" vs. "cut threads" debate, eh?
