The Dictionary Of Self Tapping Screws


A self tapping screws is known as a type of screw that has the ability to drill itself into the hole all by itself. If the material used is some hard substrates like metals or any other hard kind of plastics, then the ability of the screw to self-tap all by itself is generated by cutting a visible gap on the thread of the screw continuity. Hence in cases where the usual machines that use the traditional screws are not able to create a hole in the metal, the self tapping screws come to rescue. These screws can also be used in DIY applications.
