  • Machine Screws

    Machine screws are meant to hold two metal work pieces together, with the use of a threaded pre-tapped hole, or through a hole and held with a nut. They are threaded the entire length of the shank. For most styles of a machine screw, the length is measured from under the head to the end of the screw. For flat head machine screws, since they are intended to fit into a countersunk hole, their length is measured from the top of the screw head to the end of the screw.

  • Tek Self-Drilling Screws

    Teks screws provide secure fastening to metal with strong holding power, without the need to pre-drill. High performance cutting tips are designed to quickly penetrate the metal surface for easy installation. Self-tapping threads ensure strong holding power, in either sheet metal or steel beams. There are even Teks screws for wood-to-metal applicaitons.
    Standard grade Teks screws are ideal for attaching HVAC, electrical work, metal framing, and general light to medium applications. The TRAXX grades are designed for heavier applications, and are available in Stainless Steel and Hardened Steel.
    There are also several types that include neoprene washers, to seal the drill site against rain or other water.
