  -> Perhaps you are right. I looked the first term up in the dictionary and found "shoulder bolt", but with further online research I also found "Boulon à épaulement" as another Fr equiv. to shoulder bolt. Go figure ...

neutral  Tony M: Yes, but vis = also machine screw, often referred to as a bolt!
