Caution: Always use silver plated bolts of the correct length, or damage may occur! Never use damaged bolts!
Silver plated bolt sizes listed are available through Kimball Physics Inc. and Duniway Stockroom Corp. (800) 446-8811.
When using Kimball Physics parts in combination with some other parts, particularly parts from other suppliers, bolt length is sometimes an issue. When tapped holes are not tapped deep enough, a bolt may collide with the bottom of a hole before the bolt becomes tight. One solution to this is to stack washers underneath bolt heads. Washers which fit the Kimball bolt cutouts are available, free of charge, upon request.
