Self Tappers

I will be building some rock sliders and putting them on when I do the lift. They will bolt to the pinch seam and then go one back to the "Frame". I want to attach them there with self tapping bolts, but I can't find them anywhere. At least no one I ask knows what I'm talking about. THey all show me self tapping screws.

Since I'm on my own... if I see some, what do they look like? Anyone have a pic? I have seen some that are about 1/4" and pointed, but the threads look too fine to be a tapper. Does the tip have anything special on it to make it dig?

I could always hole saw into the back of the frame and use a bolt and nut, but that isn't my first choice.

Re: Self Tappers

self tapping just has little cut outs on the beginning of the threads. As the threads get larger it acts as a little drill in a sense first making little threaded cuts then larger until its the size of the actual bolt threads. They have lots of these at my local ace hardware. Home depot may carry some but they suck when it comes to organization and know how so best of luck wasting time there.
