Silver Tipped Set Screws
Silver Oval Tipped Set Screws
Also known as headless screws, silver oval tipped set screws are fully threaded and do not have a head projecting from the screw thread. They feature an internal hex socket or screwdriver slot for fastening and are commonly used for securing pulleys, shaft couplings, or gears to a shaft. As the screw is tightened, the silvertip conforms with the contours of the shaft to provide firm holding power without damaging the shaft. Because the softer 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 non-marring soft tips are made from silver, nylon, or brass.
Sizing Options for Silver Oval Tipped Set ScrewsSelection criteria for grub screws include size, material, point style, and drive. Sizing includes the thread count, diameter, and length of the silver grip set screw. The thread needs to be long enough to provide sufficient engagement and should equal 0.75 to 1.5 times the diameter of the screw.
