Fasten anywhere, anytime with Nutserts!

installed_nutsert

The commonly known Nutsert is a threaded insert containing a female thread (similar to that of a hex nut) used in thin gauge metals such as sheet-metal or areas with no means of accessing the rear. It is very much like a blind rivet and possesses either a large flange (Rivet Nuts) or a flush flange (Poly Nut) at the outer end; the larger headed nutserts are commonly known as flanged nutserts and have a segment of plain “barrel”. It is this plain barrel segment that crushes into the sheet metal and thereby form a nut like fitting which remains fixed through the parent material. Read More

How to define what type of bolt you’re using.

bolts

When looking at the head of a bolt, there are six details that can be told by them: the type of fastener (or drive type), the grade (or classification) of the fastener, the manufacturer, the material type, the plating or coating and whether it is an Imperial fastener or a Metric fastener.

These details can be broken down into various groups called Grades or Classes that classify them according to their property ranks, quality, degree and other various facets. According to Imperial (SAE) and Metric specifications, as the grade and class of the fasteners increase, so do that of the bolt’s tensile strength. Read More

Unika Metacore TCT Hole-saws.

The Unika Metacore TCT hole-saw is a high-quality, Japanese Tungsten Carbide Tipped hole-saw. They are commonly used in drilling aluminium, steel, stainless steel, PVC and plastics. Each TCT hole-saw come with an ejector spring fitted as standard for easy material removal and getting the hole-saw stuck within the back of the cut material is prevented for safer, faster drilling.
