Avoiding The Skinned Knuckle Syndrome
Header bolts and other bolts in tight locations can be troublesome to remove and install, especially in custom fabrications where there is limited accessibility. A solution is to use internal wrenching bolts (Allen bolts). To use allen bolts, taper the head as illustrated, and purchase or fabricate a long ball end wrench for installation and torquing. This method may alleviate the “skinned knuckle” syndrome that so many of us know so well.
