I think they would hold with either tig or mig,,,but my only concern would be if the head that is welded on is absolutely,perpendicular to the thread,allowing for proper torque.I would think that if the head was a little scewed,that it might break off while you're trying to tighten them down.I'm not really sure about this,I assume that you have already made an attempt at locating bolts or screws,of this length and this thread size.I know down here in Georgia we have specialty stores where you can buy industrial fastners like this.One of hte companies that I have used in the past is called "Fastenal",,,it's one of these stores,where if they don't have it,they can order it,I think they have a website,you might want to give them a try.Good Luck

Another source for all sorts of hardware is McMaster-Carr. They have a website, they have an incredible assortment of items, and have super-fast shipping. They are primarily an industrial supply company, but will also sell to individuals. It's worth your time to check them out.
