Instead of being used like a screwdriver, nut setters are placed into an imprint driver or machine. Typically, lag bolts or lag screws are driven using an impression driver using nut setters. Magnetic Nut Setters are available in a variety from Benchmark Abrasives. A tool for tightening nuts and bolts could be a nut driver. It is similar to a screwdriver in look and function because it mainly consists of a socket attached to a shaft and cylindrical handle. In order to accommodate a shank onto which a nut is screwed, they often feature a hollow shaft. A machine attachment called a nut setter is used to lock self-tapping and metal screws. When rotating, nutsetters drive fasteners along the edges without applying pressure to the corners. It lessens corner stripping and damage to fasteners.
TYPES OF NUTSETTER
Nut setters come in four different varieties:
Hex nut drivers: They are used to drive fasteners by turning their corners. But corner stripping could happen if you apply too much pressure to the corners. The standard nut setter is another name for it.
Lobular nut setters: In order to drive fasteners on the edges without applying pressure to the corners, lobular nut setters are utilised. It provides corner clearance where paint can pile up and lessens corner peeling and damage.
Impact and torsion nut setters: They are made to handle the extreme torque produced by contemporary cordless drills and impact drivers.
Spring-loaded nut setters: Spring-loaded nut setters are created to address frequent issues brought on by conventional nut setters. The magnetic holds on the new EAB spring-loaded nut setters bend back and forth to fit a variety of screws and fasteners with various head heights. The magnet inside the nut setter will flex back or forward to suit any peak of the screw/fastener you’re using.
- Avoid overtightening your screw or fastener because doing so could strip the cloth threads you’re screwing into or the top of the screw or fastener.
- Use a variable clutch drill with a variable speed setting instead; this may provide you greater control over your fastening process. Don’t over-tighten if using an impression driver; be very cautious about this.
- If you’ve ever attempted using a nut setter to tighten a nut on a long threaded bolt (such as a carriage bolt), you know that it isn’t deep enough to allow you to screw the nut all the way in. Use a standard socket and an EAB socket adaptor for flawless results. Due to the higher depth, you can tighten the nut entirely.
