I doubt that the bolt in question was made of steel, even a low grade steel. It was more likely made of zinc.

The bolts you can buy in home depot or lowes are all zinc. None of them are steel. The only brick and mortar place I know of to get steel fasteners is the auto parts store.



The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
