How Do You Join Sheet Metal With Self Drilling Screws?
A self drilling screw is a screw that has a TEK tip (a tip designed with a reservoir for drilling). Self drilling screws are, by necessity, also “self tapping”. To install a screw with a TEK tip, simply drill it through the sheet metal into the base material. The tip will do the work. *If you are working with a hardwood I still recommend pre-drilling to avoid splitting the wood.
What Is The Difference Between A Self Tapping Screw And Self-Drilling Screw?
– A self-tapping screw can be referred to as simply a tapping screw. Whichever name is used, these names are for screws that form mating threads (“tapping” the threads) in a pre-drilled hole in the substrate into which they are driven.
– A self-drilling screw is a self-tapping screw with the added feature of a drill point. The drill point looks a lot like the point of a drill. It will drill a hole and form the mating threads in one operation.
