Nuts and Bolts: The Lowdown
They may be small but you would be hard pressed to find any machine structure that didn't have them. Bolts may seem like they were invented at the dawn of time. However the functionality bolts provide as one of the most used fasteners is unparalleled.
The Benefits of Stainless Steel Fasteners
Stainless steel fasteners are made of steel that has been mixed with at least a ten percent compound of chromium, and possibly other metals, so that the steel doesn't rust or corrode. This makes stainless steel fasteners great for outdoor conditions, where there is a lot of water or moisture. Especially if you are building something that supports a substantial amount of weight, such as humans, you will need to use stainless steel fasteners. Steel all by itself can rust until it breaks, and nobody wants that.
