    The information you have provided is very good . I would like to point out that when bolting materials the difference between the bolting material and the parts to be connected should be considered. Some DIY projects require the strength of steel bolts and light weight aluminum. If isolators are not used then failure could occur at the joint due to galvanic corrosion (chemistry stuff I know but important.) I have seen several projects brought to me with this failure. Just saying.

    Came across your article as I was searching for bolting information to share with my Engineering technicians. Some excellent images supported with ‘easy to understand’ and informative explanations. Many thanks.
