    Default Bolt sizes for Berkeley JG bowl

    I'm making up some stainless studs for my bowl. I need to know the thread sizes for both ends so I can go get the ready rod. Thanks in advance.

    Go to McMaster/Carr and buy them ready made. 1/2 x 13

    Are you talking about the bolts for the droop, or bowl to suction housing? bolts for the droop side threads are 5/16-18 and the other side is 1/2-13 as htp said. good luck

    Why would you make studs and not use bolts?

    Better yet, buy set screws. The thread rolling is more controlled on those

    might be using a wedge-requires the stud to bend some...Screws wont do that .

    I'm not sure if I will have to run a wedge. I just like using studs over bolts when I can. Is there any point in going to 3/8" studs? I have a bunch of it laying around.

    Tom, did you get my PM?

    HAHA! I actually like the metric system better, easier for me.

    I have access to a lathe so I might make 'em all pretty with a polished round nose on them too.

    No, tough enough getting lower bolts on with a droop, 3/8 may make it impossible.

    Isn't it to ease changing of hardware..so you don' thave to worry about threading a bolt into the aluminum every time? aside from strength?

    Right on. I never paid too much attention weather people were using studs or bolts. Now I know. Thanks
