Short And Fat Security Screws

Apr 08, 2015

Short And Fat Security Screws In our image conscious society, “short and fat” is not as acceptable as “long and skinny”. In the world of security screws, they are the same. A “short and fat” security screw is one with short threads and a huge (fat) head. From a manufacturing standpoint, it’s nearly impossible to do. This is because a fat headed security screw won’t stay put in the die tooling (the center rejection… Read more »

Tap Dancing In The Round

Apr 02, 2015

Tap Dancing In The Round We tap our Key-Rex® and Penta® nuts in a separate operation. Standard hex nuts have specially made machines that grip the hex and tap at 700 per minute. Our security nuts are designed not be gripped because of their taper at the bottom. This presents problems. It requires a balancing act between special high pressure clamps and oil. Both are required, yet the oil makes clamping even harder. The only… Read more »

Mar 26, 2015

How small can a security screw go? Our micro-screw Headerman, Paul is making a 0-48 flat head thread forming screw. It’s made to tap into high density plastic for miniature Police cameras. It’s extremely small and very secure. The Penta drive and the matching bit in this size are only available by Bryce Fastener Inc. The Penta shape is more efficient than a comparable Hex. The sharper angles help drive the screw with little chance… Read more »

Spring Training Fun Bryce Fastener took time out to enjoy a spring training baseball game. It was during a Phoenix cold spell (82?). The Chicago Cubs (we have a few employees from Illinois) were the featured team.

The World's Best Security Screw

Feb 19, 2015

One-Way slotted and drilled spanner security screws were the world’s best for many years. Then regular screw drives like Allen, Torx®, and Phillips added a center rejection pin. Their security screw bits were only sold by American manufacturers and for many years they were the best security screws available. Once American manufacturing went to our foreign shores, those offshore security bits became… Read more »

You Can't Do That On That Machine! A man we’d previously purchased a cold heading machine from in the past came by our booth during our last trade show. He inspected one of our keyed security screws and said, “You can’t do that on that machine!” It was his machine he was talking about, one he’d used for many years making wheel bolts for Peterbilt Trucks. We bought it from him a few years back. Unique Security Screws He was… Read more »

Kart Racing Christmas Party

Dec 22, 2014

Kart Racing Christmas Party In honor of our new REVX™ driving screw, I (Bryce) thought it would be appropriate to take the Bryce Fastener crew Kart Racing for our annual Christmas party. I told everyone, "whoever beats me gets prize money." Two of our young guy's, Roger and Mark took first and second. I guess 3rd place isn't too bad for an old guy. The party was a fun end to 2014, we're enthused about incorporating better speed,… Read more »
