The tapered handle is similar to a sailor’s marlin spike and is used to jamb into a series of holes to help align the holes before inserting the bolt. For the convenience of the awtm, Committee F16 has highlighted those changes that may impact the use of this standard. The turn-of-the-nut method is the easiest and least expensive method for installing fasteners with the proper bolt tension.

Since there is only one pitch per diameter, it is common to refer to metric bolts only with the nominal diameter, for example M24 or M Both USCU and metric fasteners are marked so that iron workers and inspectors can quickly and easily verify that they are using the correct type of fastener e.

The previous table shows the number of rotations for a variety of bolt lengths for flat horizontal surfaces. The name “spud” comes from asgm Gaelic word for a digging stick, “spaid. The difference between the hardness of the product before and after retempering shall not exceed 20 HV points.

ASTM F568 Specification

Additionally, slotted and recessed screws of nominal thread diameters M5 and larger need not be marked. Some common head markings are shown in the figure below.

The bolt is tightened further by either hammering on the spud wrench or using a pneumatic impact wrench until the rotating part has rotated the required amount. Although AM sstm are made using A Class 8. Heat analysis Product analysis Silicon: All components of mating fasteners for example, bolts, nuts, and washers shall be coated by the same zinc coating process, and the suppliers option awtm limited to one process per item with no mixed processes in a lot.

Calibrated F58 Method Most iron workers use pneumatic power wrenches, also called impact wrenches, to tighten bolts. Originally published as F — Yield strength is stress at which a permanent set of 0.


A have a minimum yield strength of MPa and a minimum ultimate strength of MPa. Some environments may cause stress corrosion cracking of nonplated as well as electroplated products. Every bolt head must be marked with the bolt type e.

The hardness of the retempered product shall then asmt measured. It defines mechanical properties for fasteners that range from M1. Such bolts might, for example, be used in a roof truss made up of angle sections in an industrial building or to connect brace members to main structural members. The property class symbols shall be as given in Table 7. F Carbon steel may be used at the asstm of the manufacturer for products of nominal thread diameters M12 and smaller.

The ironworker installing the bolts must, therefore, get the bolt and nut tight enough to develop good friction in the joined pieces while not breaking the bolt. C For studs only, sulfur content may be 0. Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of f68 such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of aatm rights, are entirely their own responsibility.
