The main difference between tapping and threading is that a drill tapped hole has a groove around the outside of it while a threaded hole has threads. A thread can be thought of as a spiral ridge formed on the inside of a cylindrical object. The thread forms or cuts the mating surface so that when one object is screwed onto another, the threaded surface will fasten together.
A masonry anchor is a fastener designed to attach objects and fixtures securely to masonry. It connects walls or floors (i.e. bricks, blocks, stones) without relying on the type of expansion usually used with lag bolts or other threaded rod anchors.
A zinc-plated or brass screw is not stronger than a stainless-steel screw. The difference between the two types of screws is that the zinc-plated screws are less expensive and protected against rust but can cause galvanic corrosion when used to attach dissimilar metals (wood to metal, metal to plastic).
Plow bolts are a type of screw used in flooring applications where a large, flat surface is needed to be fastened. Plow bolts resemble the threads of a bolt but do not have any head on them. The end is pointed like that of a screw and is driven into the subfloor. Plow bolts are used when a connection requires a flat, smooth or flush finish.
