Scale them. Figure out what size bolt, divide by 24 or 25 depending on the scale. Only way to really be accurate.

Hi Bill,
I know you posted that question about plastruct hex rods some time ago, but I am new here, and use the very same thing. I use the .020, .030. and .040 hex rod for making nuts and bolts, and it works great
