SS is kind of funny stuff as while it tough as hell to work with it's not that strong

most machines that bend/shear or form it lose about 1/2 capacity
That what I am thinking on the THE, the name brand. But every search I do I cannot find a manufacturer called THE. Next time I am in a store that sells the THE, I will ask them where the bolt came from to try to figure it out. Post if I find anything.
