RF30 Column Bolts
- One of the column bolt finally got weak enough to cause the nut to be
hard to remove. After considerable searching on this list as well as
on the web, I found that McMaster-Carr (www.mcmaster.com) has the
5/8-11, 6inch bolts with the heavy head that fits the RF30 casting
McMaster's part number is 91571A284 and they are ASTM325 structural
bolts. The cost is about $0.88 each, but they come in a bag of 10.
I plan to keep a backup set, but I am willing to mail 3 sets to the
first three responses I get. If I get a check back for postage and
bolt cost, that is fine, if not, that is fine too. I have received so
much valuable information from this site that passing these bolts on
to someone that needs them is the least that I can do.
