Nielsen Marking Products | Nielsen Transfer Screws

Our flagship brand of Nielsen Transfer Screws are self-aligning center-locating punches for threaded holes. They come in a wide range of sizes and package configurations. The advantage of Nielsen Transfer Screws is in the ability to transfer the true center of a hole and transferring several hole locations relative to each other. Nielsen has been designing, engineering, and manufacturing high quality, high performance marking solutions for more than 80 years. Common applications include tool and die-making, machine erecting, fabrication, machining, aircraft building, custom car building, DIY projects, MRO, and more. Nielsen manufactures professional series transfer screw sets, starter series transfer screw kits, combo sets, recharge packs, and more.

Nielsen Transfer Screws are the most effective way to transfer the location of threaded holes to a blank piece of sheet metal or plate. Made from case hardened carbon steel, this proven design has been used by fabricators and machinists for decades. Simply screw the self-aligning transfer screw into the threaded hole, place the blank over the punch and strike with a dead blow hammer. The true center of the hole and the diameter of the hole will be transferred to your blank. Now simply drill or punch out the hole and your piece is ready to attach.
