This book is, as you might have guessed, about fasteners - those simple devices that are every day in the house or workshop to fasten things together. Fasteners explores bolts, screws, nuts, pins, washers, keys, studs, snap rings, rivets, adhesives, and many, many others. A lot has been written about fasteners, but it is scattered in many publications and it is often written in technical engineering terms. One purpose of this book is to consolidate, in one publication, all the basic information on fasteners, written simply so it will be easily understood. We've attempted to limit the information to those features of fasteners that will be of most interest and use to our reader - a description of each fastener, its purpose, its special uses, and how it is designated and measured. Fasteners also includes instructions for removing and installing certain fasteners, if special techniques are necessary. The meaning of special fastener terms and symbols, often technical and not always understood, are also explained. Because the proper tightening of many bolts, nuts and cap screws has become critical in modern machines we have included an entire chapter to discuss tension and torque.
