I have an assembly that I designed poorly but I'm too lazy to re-do it. I
want to add a little strength to the four pieces cobed together with 2 ea.
1/4" shcs. I was thinking of spotting a couple of 3/16" die pins to keep
everything aligned or should I use drill rod? I figure the drill rod might
take more shear abuse and die pins will just snap. But the die pins are
stronger in the first place, aren't they? It's the same work either way.
