hole) is 18mm. That the size of holes I used
when I fabricated shackles. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Drilled everything out for 3/4" bolts and I use Grade 8 bolts with the all steel (not ny-lok)locking nuts. Here in the Sacramento area we have a place that sells hardware by the pound. I think Grade 8 are about $2.50 a pound.
