You have a choice of 316 or 18-8

You can order only one if you want. The price however will knock you over.

Re: I'm having trouble finding hardware

Flat or Oval head machine screws or strut bolts are pretty common up to 6". I've never seen them longer than that. If you can cut the blocks down to where you can use a 6" machine screw your project will get a whole lot easier and cheaper.

Re: I'm having trouble finding hardware

If you are are still stuck on this project how about coupling nuts :basically long nuts screw in from both ends. Drill up from underside and use large fender washers and hex machine bolts to make up the needed extension. Measure careful and cut to allow a bit of gap where up meets down.

Re: I'm having trouble finding hardware

Order placed. $60 for 12 bolts. Thanks for the heads up on some places. I had a local place (tradesman) look for me and he called back and said all he could find was 6" but he did find one place that had 3/8 x 8" fully threaded for $19 . I ended up going to mcmaster they had the 3/8x6 for $5. Fastenall had them for $9. 4 buck mark up per bolt unless they were fully threaded but still.

Re: I'm having trouble finding hardware

ordered from mcmaster yesterday morning and its in the ups truck en route as we speak. just thought I'd update on the speedy delivery. Should be here around 3ish when the ups truck usually comes by. Plus they were the cheapest and no relation to the company, just a happy customer.
