Typically used for joining wood in heavier wood construction projects, nuts bolts and washers are used to fasten heavy wood structures to other wood or iron constructions, or connecting two iron construction parts together. While these are the most common places you would find nuts and bolts, it doesn’t mean you can’t use these handy supplies to affix many other materials together. Nuts and bolts come in a range of sizes.
The two parts you are looking to fasten together are held in place by the grip of the bolt’s thread (within the material, i.e. wood), which is held in place once you tighten the nut. It is a good idea to add a washer to the bolt (before the nut) to provide extra fastening security in the case where vibration occurs that might loosen the nuts over time.

Which nuts and bolts are best to buy?
Before you set out to find bolts and nuts suppliers, make sure you know what the load (weight) is that your nuts and bolts will need to support. It’s a good idea to use the smallest bold diameter available, in relation to the clamp load you will need these tools to hold.
- Have you identified the load case you need to support/clamp?
- Have you decided what size set of nuts and bolts you need?
- Do you know how you will tighten the nuts and bolts once they are in place?
- Do you have an adequate spanner or wrench for tightening?
