Silver Solder Tipped Set Screws
Silver Solder Oval Tipped Set Screws
Also known as headless screws, silver solder oval tipped set screws are fully threaded and do not have a head projecting from the screw thread. They feature internal hex socket or screw driver slot for fastening and are commonly used for securing pulleys, shaft couplings or gears to a shaft. As the screw is tightened, the silver solder tip conforms with the contours of the shaft to provide firm holding power without damaging the shaft. Because the softer solder tip deforms and wraps around the radius of the shaft, it contacts a greater surface area and provides a strong positional hold.
Grub screws are made with different types of tips including cup, conical, oval, half dog, full dog and flat. The thread material is typically alloy steel or stainless steel and the nor marring soft tips are made from silver solder, nylon or brass.
