Save time and money with alternative fastening solutions. When you hear "fastening," you probably envision thread forms, thread loops, coins, and maybe even tapping tools. These are very common tools that are designed specifically for fastening applications. Most likely, you have used one or all of these in your shop already. However, there are many alternative forms of "fastening without hardware" that use tools you may already have in your shop but have never thought to use in a fastening application. These unique alternatives can save you time and money and open the door for other innovative ideas.
