Silver Tipped Set Screws

Silver tipped screws are a type of set screw that secures two objects without using a bolt. Using conventional cup point or flat point set screws causes damage to shafts in the form of raised surfaces. Headless silver grip set screws to unscrew easily for resetting and can be used multiple times over. The rounded, silvertip won’t mar mating surfaces or parts. Ondrives.US provides silver oval tipped set screws in metric and inch sizes that provide a non-marring, self-locking hold for precision applications. Our silver tip grub screws have a hex socket driver and are manufactured from durable, corrosion-resistance stainless steel.

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.
