Furthermore, which side of nut goes down?
In my experience if you are not using pal nuts put the square side down . if you are using them put the beveled side down as the pal nut gets a better grip against a flat surface. On curved washers The beveled side goes down always.
Similarly, does a flat washer or lock washer go on first? Ideally the lock washer goes into the threaded fastener first followed by the flat washer. This way the lock washer adds tension to the fastener assembly. It creates pressure on the bolt or nut (depending on where it is used) to prevent the assembly from loosening when it is exposed to vibration.
Subsequently, one may also ask, which way do Bolts go on?
Usually clockwise. If reaching around behind, I use the right hand rule. You turn the fastener in the direction your curled fingers point and it will move in the direction indicated by your thumb.
What is the beveled side of a washer?
The bevel side of the washer is facing towards the bolt head.
