Title: BOLTS
Post by: strandman on December 15, 2015, 01:31:37 PM
I'm trying to find a link, but has anyone seen this UIAA thing about bolts.  No more type 304 Stainless ?! Just the 316 SS or titanium....AAAHHH  who's sending the $$ for these

Does a bolt really need to last 50 years ???  We won't have anything bette by then ?
