Je n'ai trouvé aucune apparition de l'expression 'expansion grain' sur Internet dans le contexte des meubles ou des outils; est-ce possible qu'il s'agisse d'une faute d'orthographe ou bien d'un texte déjà traduit d'une autre langue et que le traducteur n'ait pas bien traduit ici? Pour trouver une solution possible j'ai proposé ma réponse qui traduit plutôt 'expansion bolt', puisque c'est le seul moyen que je trouve pour comprendre le sens de la phrase.
