  • product thickness. Everything is simple: the thicker the element, so it is stronger and more reliable. But at the same time, massive weigh a lot more options and do not always have a need for high strength, and sometimes quite thin metal (e.g., flat mount driver excellent for disassembling wheels). For the manufacture of steel is used a circle diameter of 16 mm or hexagon;

If you have important strength, choose a product oval, they are much more rigid than the usual circle.

  • workmanship. Determine the strength of the metal-to-face is difficult, but it is possible to evaluate the treatment of products and on this basis, to draw conclusions. Extensions at the ends must be smooth and accurately machined, on the metal surface should be free of shells, burrs and other defects. A layer of paint or plating must be uniform, without damage;
