Hi,

Does anyone know if the bolt head is included or excluded in the length of the fin bolt. For instance for an isonic 101 you need a M6X35 bolt. Does it mean that the total length of the bolt with head is 35 or do I need to add extra 5 for the head ?

M6 is the Head size and 35mm is the lenght of the thread.

nonopr has it right!
Nowhere I know of that will sell you a cap screw/bolt/machine screw where the length of the head is included in the length.
The heads are all to a standard, the thread and unthreaded portion of the length add up to the total length from the bottom of the head to the end of the screw threads.
