Stainless bolts are good for producing fake ' works ' looking items.

Take one boring old Low Head M6 stainless bolt :


Quick spin in the lathe :


Or as used on the Yamaha YZM500:

Just s tip ..

   Always use copper coat or res-Q steel on the threads
   Of stainless bolts being used with aluminium or
   Magnesium , or you will have corrosion issues

     One of first things you learn when building alloy boats

Muzz, I work in a mold shop and seen first hand the difference from steel bolts VS Stainless steel bolts in aluminum after 10 years of service. The steel bolts we have to drill every one out as they just snap off from all the corrosion. There are like part of the aluminum. The stainless bolts come out with out breaking at all. Al

I knew there was something that needed to be applied to stop the "welding" by corrosion....thanks Muzz.

as long as you are not in a saltwater environment, there should be no issues with stainless in aluminum.   anti seize is recommended of course...
