About this deal

Screws are often categorized according to their head. All screws have a head. The head, of course, is the uppermost part of a screw. It connects to the shank, which is the threaded body. You can install screws by driving them into a workpiece via the head. Waferhead screws are a countersunk head with a flat top surface and a cone-shaped bearing surface. The wafer's 70° conical under head area does not extend to the outer edge of the head, providing a bearing surface of 16° around the circumference of the under-head. Preferred head style for self-drilling screws. Provides the necessary bearing surface and flush fit in wood and softer materials. The head/shank fillet is contoured to strengthen the under head area. . It is similar to ‘flat’ heads, but with no driving recess. The ‘round countersunk’ head is used for shorter screw lengths to provide a longer thread grip and more shallow countersinking. Round Washer Also known as the thread flank, helix angle is the angle made by the thread’s helix and its relation to the thread axis. On a tapered thread, the helix angle is the angle made by the conical spiral of the thread with the axis of the thread. An easy way to think of the helix angle is that it’s the shape formed by the threads of the screw. How to measure screw thread size Metric Oval is a rounded head with a 90° is a countersunk cone-shaped bearing surface. Preferred over a flat head in conical applications, or when a more decorative finished look is desired. The countersunk surface nests into mating countersunk applications. Inch Oval is the same as metric but with an 82-degree cone.

Phillips’s tamper-resistant drives are a little more obscure because you have to have the right tools to install and remove them. Also, tamper-resistant screws aren’t nearly as strong as regular Phillips drives. They are challenging to use in high-torque applications and cannot be made to meet high strength standards. 17. Combination HeadsDesigned specifically for use in drywall (plasterboard) installation because the screw distributes bearing stress over a wider area than flat heads. The obsolete Fillister head is higher with a correspondingly deeper slot. Fillister heads can be shaved and drilled. . TRUSS OVEN HEAD SCREWS Sometimes features are combined, as in the case of slotted hex, hex washer, slotted hex washer, and round washer head designs. A screw is a type of fastener characterised by a helical ridge, also known as a male (or external) thread. Typically made of metal, screws fasten materials by digging in and wedging into them by turning, upon torque applied. Truss heads are typically wider than the heads on other screws and have a slightly rounded surface. You’ll usually need truss heads when working with sheet metal and other projects that require large holes because the wide head prevents the truss screw from going through the hole. 8. Button Heads

A dome head screw with a deep slot, these are special types of screw heads. Also called binding head screws, they typically have a 10% larger bearing surface than pan head screws. Flat – slotted head screw Round heads were historically the preferred fastener design because they were easy to make; most historical rivets have been made with this head design. Today the round head is generally reserved for rivets, hammer drive and wood screws. Round heads have a high crown and deep recess but the head diameter is smaller than a pan. Round head screws are shaped almost like a one-third circle with a flat bottom. . . .. Presents a flush, seamless surface, or slightly below the surface with a slotted screw head. Flat head screw types are often used on handrails, furniture and lighting fixtures to prevent snagging of clothes and skin, and for aesthetic reasons. You’ll also find the flat head screw commonly used in construction for mounting hinges. They’re also popular drywall screws. Fillister head screw Slotted Pan head screws have a gently rounded top surface and curved sides with a flat bearing surface under the head. Pan head screws have generally replaced round, truss and binding heads. The distance from the thread crest to the root. This is measured perpendicular to the screw’s axis. Major and minor diametersPan head machine screws are available in different drives, such as slotted or Phillips. These screw-head profiles are low with a larger diameter than most screws. They also provide greater torque for securing and removing, due to the rim of the head, which is slightly raised. Hex head screw Similar to a pan head screw, a fillister head screw has a circular top, slightly convex surface and greater height. Its diameter allows for a deeper slot. A fillister head is very similar to a raised cheese head screw, except that it’s taller. These are often used as replacement screws. Oval head screw Countersunk head screws, called flat head screws in America if produced inMetric have a 90°angle but on larger sizes over M20, this can change to 60°. In the USA inch products have an 80 to 82° taper head angle and in the UK with inch products to British standards have an angle of 87-90°.

Unlike a flat screw, the head of a raised screw will come out of the surface slightly. This shape doesn’t necessarily help the screw’s drive performance, but it, instead, is more for decoration. 3. Bugle Heads Sentinel screws offer high-level protection because you can only drive them one way. They’re challenging to remove, so they’re best for permanent fixtures. 34. 2-Hole Screws Truss heads are characterized by a curved surface and an extra-wide top. They are often used to prevent tampering., having a lower profile than most round heads The ‘flat fillister’ is identical to a regular fillister screw, except for a flat top replacing the latter’s oval top. Flat 82+Torx screw drives have a six-pointed star shape and are unique and recognizable among screw drive types. This entirely new design is gaining in popularity due to its ability to prevent cam-out. Torx screw drives are often used in the construction and manufacturing of electronic products. 27. Torx Tamper-Resistant Pan head screws are threaded fasteners with a similar non-countersunk, mushroom-shaped head. They are commonly used to fasten wooden workpieces. Pan head is one of the most common types of screws. They are known as “pan head screws” because their head resembles a pan. Differences Between Truss Head and Pan Head Screws With their wide and rounded head, truss head screws offer several benefits. They are incredibly strong, for instance. Truss head screws are often used to assemble fuselages and other aerospace components because of their superior level of strength. The ‘oval undercut’ is ideal for shorter screw lengths which require longer thread grip and more shallow countersinking. Fillister

Countersunk designs consist primarily of flat, oval, and bugle heads. Unless the material is very soft, flat and oval heads require a countersunk hole. The advantage is that little or no part of the head protrudes above the surface of the material. The flange helps the screw to remain in its position, taking the place of a washer for some projects. 7. Truss Heads Raised heads, sometimes known as oval-shaped heads, have an angle much like flat screws but have more of a dome-shaped head. You’ll also need to countersink these screws to accommodate the angle. The ‘hex washer’ head is an updated, more commonly used version of the hex head. It is characterised by an attached washer style flange under the head, creating a large surface connection area. It is sometimes used in combination drives, with phillips or slotted drives. OvalThe dome shape creates a visually appealing design on the surface, while the flat inner part of the dome helps the screw stop where it needs to just at the surface. 6. Flange Heads
