Hey Mike. If you need someone to run the hacksaw let me know. I'm old, but I think I can do it.
Im going to machine me own. I wanted a hex head on them to hold while tightening them down.

We get alot of things like that from McMaster-Carr. Shipping isn't too bad, just have to wait a few days for things to arrive plus they have a lot of speciality stuff like mil spec and aircraft items that we use.

Head studs (I've read) provide 30% more clamping force than a standard head bolt, is it the same if you make your own studs out of stainless allthread?


I'd die if I tried to cut 16 studs out of stainless steel with a hacksaw. :D

I don't think all-thread has anywhere near the same tensile strength as a bolt would have. If you can find pre-made studs, I would go that route. Save making you're own as a last resort. Just my .02

Mike Use a die grinder and make short work of it brotha! I did it on the Kachina. Like Squircha said, place a nut on the em first then cut it to length. Use the nut to straighten the threads. Would only take an hour to cut em to 3" or bring it over & I'll cut em on my Hitachi rod cutter.
Dam this all sounds like tortcher:D

They're threaded into aluminum. The threads would pull out before the stud broke whether it be store bought or home made.
