#12 Phillips Truss Head Self Tapping Sheet Metal Screws Stainless Steel

A Truss head screw has a head with a flat underside and a slightly domed top. It has almost no exposed edge. Sheet Metal Screws have deep spiral threads the entire length and with a pointed end. Holds thin metal sheets together. Holds well in wood, Plastic, and Fiberglass. Manufactured from metal. Can be rotated into or out of the object using a screwdriver.SHEET METAL SCREWS HAVE SHARP THREADS THAT CUT INTO MATERIALS SUCH AS:

  • Plastic
  • Plexi glass
  • Wood
  • And of course sheet metal
Sheet metal screws are also the go to fasteners for use with plastic wall anchors in drywall.
Tapping screws are considered externally threaded fasteners that "tap" their own mating threads in metallic and non-metallic (such as plastic) materials.
Tapping screws, especially Type A, are referred to as "sheet metal screws" because one of their first applications was in ventilation ducts made of sheet metal.
They also make excellent fasteners for attaching metal hardware to wood because the fully threaded shank provides good retention in wood
Phillips drive is x-shaped for installation with a phillip screw driver.
The design is often criticized for its tendency to cam out at lower torque levels than other "cross head" designs.
There has long been a popular belief that this was actually a deliberate feature of the design, for the purpose of assembling aluminum aircraft without over tightening the fasteners.

About Self tapping Screws

  • A self-tapping screw is a screw that can tap its own hole as it is driven into the material.
  • Some self-tapping screws are also self-drilling, which means that, in addition to the tap-like flute in the leading threads, there is also a preliminary drill-like fluted tip that looks much like the tip of a center drill.
  • The screws in this sale are not "Self Drilling" and do require a pilot hole for a thick gauge material

Key Notes:
  • Stainless steel phillips truss head sheet metal screws will have no problem punching through a thin or light guage sheet metal but will require a pilot hole for a thicker guage metal; the phillips drive has a tendency to slip if there is too much torque applied during installation and these machine screws being made of a high quality stainless steel which is softer than other non corrosion resistant fasteners are also susceptible to stripping so it is recomended to use a slower speed or to set the clutch on the driver so when the machine screw is fastened completely the drill does not shred the phillips drive
  • Phillips truss head sheet metal screws with a self tapping thread patern that forms its own threads in the material it is being screwed into and is mainly used for attatching two pieces of metal together but also works great in wood and plexiglass because of the coarse thread
