hardware alternatives?

I can not get a fully threaded screw of 5 / 16-18 X 5.
I get it with a screw on the tip, or fully threaded 4 inches. The same with the m8x130.

Some alternative? Threaded rod with a nut on each point ?.

I also do not get the 6-32 nuts with Nylock. Can I use grower and loctite?



It does not need to be fully threaded. Loctite is fine.

30mm of thread is ok?

Should be, you can see what we use here, in the second image.

Are there any disadvantages of using fully threaded parts? I sent my local dealer fastenal a screenshot of the parts list and they gave me almost everything fully threaded.

Nope, doesn’t matter.
