The Log Home Neighborhood

An online log home community for log home enthusiasts.

Hi,
 
I have several quotes for 1/2" x 16" lag screws (+ 1 washer for each).
 
Portland Bolt.com - $1.35 each - Grade 1 steel
 
Instock Fasteners.com - $2.12 each - Grade 2 steel
 
Fastenal.com - $2.95 each - Grade 2 steel.
 
A few quick questions:
 
1. Is Grade 1 strong enough for 11" logs - Swedish cope - Saddle notched.
 
2. The Portland Bolt rep ensures me that Instock and Fastenal must be selling me a Grade 1 (even though they state Grade 2).  He states that every imported lag screw is only a grade one?  Any truth to his claim?

No problem Will. I've been working on the back side of the moon and have been out of touch. Working in Chama, NM as well as Chromo CO. I have to go to a local bar to get my Internet. I'll be starting a project in Prescott, AZ this summer and would like to see your product line.

Thanks,
Michael Collins
Your samples may have been delivered already...if not..sometime this week!

Happy building!
