I was out in the shop working on my new workbench tonight, and I spaced drilling a pilot hole for one of the lag bolts ... I thought I could out muscle it, but the torque finally out did me. I wound up loosening the opposite end's bolt, spreading apart the leg. which is designed to trap the pipe clamp section as shown here.
Would a pair of deck screws hold on either end well enough to counter the torque of driving the bolt home? Or should I use a stouter screw? The deck screws would stay in there, but I think i'd remove anything heftier than that as I don't have many and would need to repeat that procedure on the 2nd leg.
I gave up when the wrench I was using slipped off of the bolt and flew across the room. at that point I'd had more than enough, and had some computer work to wrap up.
