Tips for working with aluminum hardware in VEX Robotics:

  • You can even use VEX EDR steel structure pieces to tighten aluminum screws! Bend or cut your own "keys" to fit into tight spaces for the ultimate in low-profile hardware tightening.
  • Make sure that the slotted tool is seated fully in the screw head. As long as the tool is properly set in the screw, you will not have any issue with the head skipping.
  • Aluminum screws are great for holding metal structure together. However, high stress points should use steel screws. For example, if you have a 2" long cantilever holding your entire lift on, that should have a steel screw.
  • Don't use aluminum screws if you need to cut threads in hard material, for example into a tight hole in a piece of metal.
