TEK SCREWS TEK screws drill their own pilot holes to combine two pieces, saving a lot of time and effort.

Choosing the right one: Dual Thread Roofing TEK Screw • Drills through the IBR sheeting and at the point where it starts to drill through the metal structure below; the break in thread allows it to spin in the sheeting while it drills into the structure.

Wood • Thin sheet metal to wood • No pilot hole required (cutting point)

Truss Head • Broad, flat head for grip • Flat head = less noticeable

Type 3 Point

Tek screw length

• Consider the total thickness of the materials – Object + substrate + space between. • Tek screw should be able to drill through the object and through the substrate and extend at least the drill bit, plus suffiecient thread (NB!).

NB!

• Example, if the total thickness of the materials is 48mm, don’t use the 50mm Tek screws as the threaded length will be insuffiecient. Rather buy the 65mm Tek screws as they will extend beyond the substrate.

for more information, visit

www.eureka.co.za


Drilling point length • It’s very IMPORTANT that the drilling point is long enough to completely drill through the material before the threads engage. • Example, if you need to drill through 4mm plate, the drilling point should be longer than 4mm. • If the drilling point is too short and the threads engage too early, they can cause the fastener to bind and break off.

Point is TOO SHORT!

• The drill flute allows the debris to exit the hole that is being drilled. • If the drill flute becomes embedded in the material, the drill chips will clog the flute and cause the drill point to overheat and fail.

flute

NOTE: A TEK SCREW MUST ALWAYS DRILL THROUGH BOTH PIECES OF MATERIAL, ALLOWING THE FULL DRILL POINT TO EXTEND BEYOND THE SECOND PIECE. IT CANNOT EMBED ITSELF LIKE A SCREW, IT MIGHT BREAK.

Point is long enough

Installation Tips 90°

• ATTENTION: Drill slower than 1 500rpm! • Apply only enough pressure for the screw to drill. The screw should do the drilling. • It is important to hold the power drill at 90° to the surface to prevent failure. Adjust the speed of your drill before starting

Hold your power drill at 90° to the surface you are drilling into

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 1

Should smoke appear during use? NO!! Absolutely not! • Drilling speed too high. • OR applying too much downward pressure.

2

Why is the point melting?

3

• Applying too much downward pressure. • OR drilling speed too high. • OR drill flute too short.

Why is the screw breaking? • Drilling tip is too short. Thread is engaging before the tip is finished drilling. • Or drilling point not long enough to drill through the thickness of the material. • Drill is on hammer action, set to normal operation.

Scan this code for a helpful instructional video!

Why is nothing happening? • At normal drilling speeds it is difficult to see if the screw is rotating in the correct direction. • Stop and make sure the power drill is not set to ‘Reverse’ mode.

TABLE SAWS ARE the cause of many serious injuries each year. In fact, there is a table saw accident in the United States every nine minutes and 10 amputations every single day according to statistics. “SawStop minimises these injuries by stopping the blade within five milliseconds of contact. That is 10 times faster than a car’s airbag being activated or 10 times faster than your reflexes can respond to danger,” said Greg de Villiers Sales manager Vermont Sales. The blade carries a small electrical signal, which the safety system continually monitors. When skin makes contact on the blade, the signal changes because the human body is conductive. The change to the signal activates the safety system. An aluminium brake springs into the spinning blade, stopping it. The blade’s angular

The safest Table Saw SawStop has gone from strength to strength in South Africa since Vermont Sales first introduced it to the industry in 2016. It has now earned its place as the preferred table saw in the country due to its unique and technically advanced features that only appear on the SawStop units.

momentum drives it beneath the table, removing the risk of subsequent contact and power to the motor is automatically shut off. Resetting the saw yourself is easy. Simply replace the blade and affordable brake cartridge and your saw is operational again. The entire reset process takes less than five minutes. Hobbyists, contractors, cabinet makers, DIY’ers, celebrities and educators choose SawStop every day. It’s the no-compromise SawStop engineering that makes them choose these saws. Safety comes first followed by unmatched quality, precision, and meticulous engineering. SawStop saws are built to last, built to cut, and built to protect. Vermont Sales, a distributor in South Africa, had the foresight to import the technology, believing that table saw users and employers alike would see the value of safety and zero harm in workshops. The SawStop brand has never had a product failure or reported a serious injury since it was introduced. Watch the amazing demo on https://bit.ly/2twMNUP or view the brand on the Vermont Sales web site www.vermontsales.co.za then click through to SawStop. Demonstrations can also be arranged on request.
