A screw needs a point or it’s just a bolt isn’t it?

    I don’t know… this journal doesn’t seem to have a point, and it does just fine.

    Oi! On behalf of all the world’s bolts, I take exception to your rather ham-fisted labeling of this defect screw. Indeed there is a distinct difference between screws and bolts. For starters, all bolts have a shaft of constant diameter, unlike this screw with a tapered body. And a bolt typically can be affixed to a nut or otherwise tapped body with matching thread gauge.

    Outrageous!

    The only difference between a screw and a bolt is how they are used — if it screws directly into something it’s a screw; if it screws into a nut, compressing the material in between, it’s a bolt. Doesn’t matter about the points, threads or shape.

    the thread on a bolt and a screw is quite different isn’t it?
