I was by Lowes to pick up some lag bolts, for a set of wheels to move my
wood lathe. Thanks I think Leon for the video showing a perfect method..
I saw the conversation on screws getting smaller.
Well the lags are shrinking both in length and width too.
Length has shrunk from previous screws by enough to raise my eyebrow. A
1 1/2 in screw previously measured 1 5/8 length (much older stock that I
had), now measures 1 3/8 in length.
The lag has also changed from 5/16 previously to 1/64 under.
Can't wait too see where we are going from here.
Yep. Been quite a few years since I've bought a lag bolt from a Borg.
A structural screw like Spax or GRK, besides being hugely stronger in
sheer force, has an added benefit in being easier to drive with a
quality cordless drill.
Expensive, but well worth it in strength and labor savings.
I love Spax.
Next time you're there check out FastenMaster, if they're carried in
I used this product on my "Sharn" and they were amazing...
"Playing is not something I do at night, it's my function in life"
So SPAX doesn't fill the space on a wheel mounting plate like lags do.
I don't need heavy structural, I want to fill the space as much as possible.
I don't want the length, just noticed it was much smaller when compared
to an old lag.
And yep, spax are neat when used in the right application.
