Having the right socket set only helps if you have the right socket set screws to match. At FMW Fasteners, we offer a huge selection of socket set screws, including alloy, zinc-plated and stainless steel options. Find the socket set screws that match your specifications, and then order in the exact amount you need rather than settling for some arbitrary quantity.
What Are Socket Set Screws?
Socket set screws are also known as grub screws. They don't have a head, and you typically tighten them with a hex or square key. They are commonly used to prevent any pulley or similar machine part relative to a shaft from moving. With forged sockets on all standard socket set screws, you can get maximum strength and resistance to cracking in corners when you use these screws.
Almost every socket set screw requires a hex socket, or else you need to use a star screwdriver or a square or slot socket. The screw works by going through a hole in one external object and is then tightened against the inner object to connect the two. The screw will bind materials together using threads and applies pressure to the tip so both objects will anchor together in a set position.
What Are Standard Socket Set Screws Used for?
These screws are meant to secure one object against another without a nut such as securing a pulley or a gear to a shaft. For example, you can use standard socket set screws on a pulley hub so that the end-point bears against the shaft. The fastening comes from friction between the screw and the shaft.
Socket set screws also come in a variety of different sizes and styles depending on what you need them for. FMW Fasteners has various imperial and metric sizes available as well as different point styles, lengths, materials, finishes and more. You can also adapt our screws to fit your needs. If you don't want anyone to make unauthorized changes, you can set the socket set screws flush with or below the surface and melt wax into the depression and socket.
