What is a Precision Shoulder Screw?

Precision Shoulder Screw Description

Like other shoulder screws, precision shoulder screws have an unthreaded shaft (shoulder) between the head and the threaded section of the screw shank.  The shoulder allows slight movement of the fastened material while maintaining alignment with the parent material. In addition, precision shoulder screws must be installed in pre-drilled holes because they lack the tapered shanks needed for self-threading. Precision shoulder screws are set apart from traditional shoulder screws because of tighter tolerances which make them ideal for delicate applications.
