Nuts and bolts
are very important in today’s life. They keep
things together. As the things they hold together
are different, the bolts are different too. There
is a wide variety of bolts available today.
the bolts are :
Stove Bolt - This bolt has threads all
the way till the end. It is used as a general utility

with no slots. This can be used with wood. Since
it does not have protruding head it is used when
you do not want a protruding head .

a hex head and is applied with a wrench. The entire
length is threaded and it is used as general utility
