"THIS LETTER PROVIDES TO THE NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION A     

COURTESY NOTIFICATION AS REFERENCED BY 10 CFR PART 21, PARAGRAPH 

21.21, (4).                                                      

                                                                 

"ACCUTECH, A DIVISION OF B&G MANUFACTURING CO., INC. (B&G),      

RECENTLY DETERMINED THAT HEAVY HEX BOLTS SUPPLIED BY THE NOW     

DEFUNCT CARDINAL INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS, L.P. (CIP) IN 1992 MAY BE  

NONCONFORMING.                                                   

                                                                 

"ON JULY 10, 1995, B&G PURCHASED THE NAME AND CERTAIN OTHER      

ASSETS FROM CIP, A LIMITED PARTNERSHIP THAT HAD BEEN FORMED AND  

OPERATED IN NEVADA. B&G BEGAN ITS OWN NUCLEAR FASTENER BUSINESS  

AT THE SAME NEVADA SITE AND TEMPORARILY USED THE 'CARDINAL       

INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS' NAME BEFORE OFFICIALLY ADOPTING THE TRADE   

NAME OF ACCUTECH IN DECEMBER, 1995.                              

                                                                 

"WE BELIEVE THIS POSSIBLE NONCONFORMANCE SITUATION WAS THE RESULT

OF INSUFFICIENT HEAT TREATING PERFORMED BY CIP AT THE NEVADA     

SITE.  THE HEAVY HEX BOLTS UNDER DISCUSSION ARE TRACE CODE M2.   

                                                                 

"EVEN THOUGH B&G IS NOT BOUND TO TAKE FORMAL ACTION UNDER 10 CFR 

PART 21, AND THE OBLIGATION FOR 10 CFR PART 21 STATUTORY         

NOTIFICATION REMAINS WITH CIP, AS A COURTESY B&G IS NOTIFYING THE

NRC OF THIS SITUATION.  IN ADDITION, BASED UPON RECORDS ACQUIRED 

FROM CIP, B&G IS SENDING COURTESY NOTIFICATIONS TO CUSTOMERS WHO 

WERE SHIPPED PRODUCT FROM THIS LOT BY CARDINAL INDUSTRIAL        

PRODUCTS, L.P."
