This product guide contains the specification for metric threaded dog point grub screws available from Westfield Fasteners. The basis of this specification is the ISO standard ISO 4028 and the older DIN 915.
Also known as a set screw, these headless types of screws have many uses. This particular type has a hex socket drive, and a square profiled end called a dog point on the opposite end.
Scope of the ISO standard.
ISO 4028 specifies the tolerances and the variation in form of metric threaded dog point grub screws, for sizes from M1.6 up to and including M24. Table 1 below defines the overall dimensions and tolerances of this screw type. Table 2 defines the tolerance on the shank length.
Grub screws in general are graded by hardness rather than by tensile strength. The relevant DIN and ISO standards specify a 45H hardness grade for non stainless steel grub screws and 21H for stainless steel grub screws.
Although the DIN 915 standard has been superceded by ISO 4028, the dimensions are the same and off-the-shelf parts could be marked with either standard.
