M4.2 Stainless Steel Self Drilling Tek Screws - 50PCS/300PCS Flat Head

 

At OzSupply Australia we stock the M4.2 x 25/32/38mm Stainless Steel Drilling Flat Head Screws in 50/300pcs. With a point “like a drill bit”, these screws create their own hole, and their own thread in one action. This is probably where the confusion with self-tappers comes in – both kinds of screws are technically self-tapping as far as the function of their threads are concerned, but the massive difference is in the function of their points.Self-drillers are also commonly called ‘Tek’ screws, a proprietary brand name associated with their unique shape and function.

  • With a point “like a drill bit”, these screws create their own hole, and their own thread in one action. This is probably where the confusion with self-tappers comes in – both kinds of screws are technically self-tapping as far as the function of their threads are concerned, but the massive difference is in the function of their points.
  • Self-drillers can be characterised as a fine thread or a coarse thread, self-tappers can’t.
  • In short, self-tappers can’t drill, self-drillers can as well as tap a thread.
  • Self-drillers are also commonly called ‘Tek’ screws, a proprietary brand name associated with their unique shape and function.
  • Drill point sizes dictate drilling capacity. Common Tek point sizes are #2, #3, #4 and #5 (Series 500) – 2 and 3 most common, 4 and 5 for going through thicker metal.
