What are set screws?
Set screws are a particular kind of screw with no head and threading through them. They vary from regular screws in that they are intended to sit flat against a surface and hold two loose components together. Set screws don’t even have a head. Set screws operate to produce adequate compressive stress to hold objects together as they descend into a hole that has already been bored. Set screws are unique in that they don’t have protruding elements, such as a head, that can obstruct the movement or operation of machinery; as a result, they are most frequently utilized in moving parts, particularly those found in engines and machinery.
