Brass Tipped Set Screws

  • Brass Tipped Set Screws

Brass tipped set screws are headless or blind screws made of Alloy or Stainless Steel and have a brass half dog point that is flat and cylindrical in shape.
Half-dog brass tip set screws are an ideal replacement for using dowel pins or bolts that are mounted in a cross drilled hole in the shaft. This method weakens the shaft and pre-determines the lateral and rotational position of the mounted component.  Using a set screw with a brass tip will not mar or damage the shaft or the mating part. Because installation causes minimal deformation of the tip, the grub screws can also be relocated or reset multiple times. Half-dog grub screws are ideal for any rotating application but are most frequently used to attach pulleys, shaft couplings, Sprockets or gears to a shaft.

Brass Tip Set Screws

Brass Tip set screws from Ondrives.US feature 18-8 stainless steel or alloy steel threads for excellent strength and corrosion resistance assembled with a half-dog brass tip. This style of headless brass tipped screws also work well with locating holes, grooves or flats that are machined into the shafts. Used this way they provide a secure and permanent hold.

Half Dog Set Point Screws

Grub screws are offered with different tips including nylon, brass and silver solder. Nylon tips provide the softest mating surface while silver solder provides the hardest. Brass half-dog tipped set screws have medium hardness and are best suited for use with hardened shafts. Half dog points are also flat, which allows the screw to sit completely flat against the shaft surface.
The length of your brass tip set screw should be long enough to provide sufficient clamping and engagement and allow the tip of the screw to make contact with the surface of the shaft or rotating part. In general, the diameter of your half dog point set screw should be sized roughly one-half of the diameter of your shaft.
