Question

What is the part number of the mating bolt for this?

Asked on 09/29/2015 by John Gresham

Top Answer

I have been using hand cut and filed lengths of 5/16 SS allthread from Home Depot. It is tricky to start the threads without cross-threading even on factory ends ;)

Answer

I got it now. Thanks for your answers.

Answered on 09/30/2015 by John Gresham

Answer

There is no one part for the bolt. Bolt will be for whatever size barrel nut ie 8/32 or 1/4-20 and the length will be for whatever length you need. The purpose of this nut is to just have the screw head show instead of a nut and washer.

Answered on 09/29/2015 by HARRY JAMES

Answer

They are just like nuts for any bolt. If you have a #6-32 -3/8" barrel length 3/16" OD barrel nut then any #6-32 bolt can be screwed into it. You counterbore the side the barrel nut goes onto with 3/16" drill so it appears as an oval head bolt when it is really a nut.

Answered on 09/29/2015 by JOHN BECK

Answer

You can use any bolt that has the same thread and size.

Answered on 09/29/2015 by BRADFORD BARCUS

Answer

Multiple SS screws will fit this depending on what length is required. Match to the 6-32 threads.

Answered on 09/29/2015 by MICHAEL MOUNT

Answer

any bolt/machine screw you want, of course depending on the size (1/4-20 or 3/16-24) of the barrel bolt.

Answered on 09/29/2015 by Steven Olson

Answer

8-32 thread, part number depends on type of metal and length of bolt needed

Question

Is there a problem using an 18 -8 stainless barrel nut with a 316 stainless screw?

Asked on 02/05/2015 by Mike Mojzak

Top Answer

Not at all. Corrosion happens between dissimilar metals (ie. S.S. and aluminum) These are both stainless, stainless grades differ because of the amount of nickel in the material.

Answer

Mike, I do not know, I use the same grade for both.

Answered on 02/05/2015 by SPENCER ALLEN

Answer

18-8 is a broader range of stainless steels referred to as 300 series stainless (18% chrome, 8% nickel. 304 and 316 are actually subsets of the 18-8 family. This would not be considered a dissimilar metal matchup. 316 has better properties over others, however all 18-8 family has good strength and corrosion properties as well. If the application allows, put the 316 screw on the exterior or whichever side would receive more salt spray. Its not that critical though.

Answered on 02/05/2015 by MICHAEL WALSH

Answer

I don't see the option for that size? Threads need to match. I guess I'm a little confused on question. I'll try to help, but I'm no hardware expert either

Answered on 02/06/2015 by JEREMY BYROM

Answer

Not that I know of.

Answered on 02/05/2015 by BLAISE VEZIE

Answer

As noted by others, no. Simply stated, 316 contains molybdenum while the rest simply do not. 316 is used in salty environments and the brown rust staining you'd see on a cheaper stainless product (like your grill or fridge).As long as there is oxygen to oxidize the magnesium. Galvanic corrosion is not the problem you'll have. Over tighten stainless, and the surfaces grind against each other and break off the oxides and then there is the potential for welding to occur at the molecular level. Antiseize may help, but one might use the marine grade anti-sieze without metal bits in it.

Question

Can you tell me what thread the 5/16 Barrel Nut has? It is described as (5/16 -- 3/4" Barrel Length 3/8" OD)but no mention of the thread (NC 18 or NF 24). I'm hoping for 18 per inch.

Asked on 03/09/2016 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I used S/S threaded rod from Home Depot and I believe all they sell is coarse (18). Works great but must be lined up precisely to start threading.

Answer

Yes they are 5/16 x 18 and I would recommend using some sort of anti-seize compound with them. I used mine with two different fastener styles and had some hassle with one brand of bolt.

need barrel nut 3/16"diameter X 7/9" long w/6/32 internal threads ?

Asked on 02/26/2014 by Hugh Marionneaux

Top Answer

If they can supply this for you, take it as their prices and delivery are excellent. I was quite happy with my order.

Answered on 02/27/2014 by Len Gold

Answer

I assume the 7/9" is 7/8". Not sure if that length is made, you could run a search online to try and locate. Although, I'm wondering why they need to 7/8" long? The screw should make up any difference in material thickness. Unless, you want the bolt to bottom out so the material can pivot. If that is the case you get some 3/16" tubing and make a spacer for the additional length.

Answered on 02/26/2014 by KEITH PERRY

Answer

how are you planning to use this b-nut that the internal thread is critical? typically i use ss b-nuts paired with the appropriate threaded screw (rounded screw head is the same as for the b-nut) to 'hold' together layers of material for a finished look... the internal thread is never an issue. my last use was to fasten the poly carbonate windows for my wylie 1/2 ton sailboat ... layers consisted of the polyc/neoprene gasket/fiberglass deckhouse/inside wood trim...b-nut on the outside, matching 'barrel screw' on the inside. important to check the overall thickness of the finished layers as the b-screw has to be long enough to be tightened within the b-nut' 'dead-end' thread depth. if ss, strength or appearance are not an issue for your application, look at 'post binders'

Answered on 02/27/2014 by ALAN KAWAKAMI

Answer

Hugh, I got this question from Jamestown (JD) and don't think I can help. Somewhere along the line I think the length got messed up... 7/9" long? What I bought were 3/8" which were fine for me but may not work for you.

Answered on 02/26/2014 by CHRISTOPHER ROCKWELL

Answer

The Standard 6-32 barrel nut appears to be 3/8" long. I had an application where I needed a long 6-32 screw to engage a 3/8" long barrel nut... I couldn't find the needed length. What finally worked for me was using a length of #6 threaded rod with a standard barrel nut on each end. Hope this helps.

I have some #8 Beckson Barrel Bolts from Jamestown Distrubitors. Their overall Bolt length is 0.514". The thread depth is 0.390", which is approximately the length of the barrel portion. They have ben in use for about 3 years securing my fiberglass dodger to its support frame. They work well and look great. Jamestown was easy to work with and delivery was prompt.

Unfortuately, I have used all of my stock up and don't have a sample to confirm. I don't remember having any issues of "bottoming out" with the bolts. Sorry I could not be more help. Spin

Answered on 11/11/2011 by RALPH SHAFFER

Answer

I bought some of these a couple of years ago.While I can't say for certain, I believe the threads were about a half inch or more. For my application, I threaded longer screws into the barrel and then measured and cut them just 3/16" short of the length so the materials would pull together with out bottoming the screw. They have been in service two years now and they perform great.
