I don't see why you are making a big fuss over this as no one else seems to have a problem. Maybe they are not the "perfect" bolt to your standards.




you posted this pic which seems to show a different size head.
when i asked you didn't answer the question but just said they where within tolerance.

i still don't know the head size. your drawing shows sharp edges but your screws don't.
china manufacturers are often loose on there tolerances so i don't know if it is between the .720-.740 you have listed.
all you had to do was mic a screw and post the size to my original question. this shouldn't be a hard question.

My box of bolts arrived today Steveā€¦thanks!

Steve-O, I think what you're seeing is an illusion due to the difference in length.  I don't have a micrometer, but I put this new 1 1/2" bolt next to a first run 1" bolt and the slot is identical, the head appears the same width and height, and it has the same taper.  The threaded portion "looks" thinner, but that is also an illusion as they both work perfectly with an original locknut.

Check this out.  The red lines are the same length but the one on the left appears shorter:   https://www.brainbashers.com/illusionimages/85.gif

Thanks again Steve A.!

Thanks for the kind remarks Tom. I have close to 10K sold now and working on some big over seas orders. I have plenty more if anyone else is needing bolts.
