Allen/ Hexagonal Socket, Cap Head, Screw/ Bolt
Allen/ Hexagonal, Socket Cap Screw/ Bolts come as 'sets' and 'bolts'. The, ‘SET’, term is used to describe a fastener that is fully threaded in lengths up to and around 1 inch (from the underside of the head), depending on the diameter. As the diameter increases the set length will increase. Over around 1 inch (depending on the diameter) in length the fastener will have a, 'shoulder,' or unthreaded area (plain shank) under the head. This space of unthreaded area confirms that the fastener is now a bolt (cap head, bolt in this case). Some people might simply call them Allen or, 'Allan bolts,' in association with the Allen, Hexagonal Key which is used to tighten and loosen the fastener. So, ‘Socket,’ refers to the hexagon shaped indentation found on the top of the fasteners’ head.

British Standard Fine (BSF)
British Standard Fine (BSF) is a screw thread form, as a fine-pitch alternative to British Standard Whitworth (BSW) thread. It was used for steel bolts and nuts on much British machinery, including cars, prior to adoption of Unified, and later Metric, standards. For highly stressed conditions, especially in motorcycles, a finer thread, British Standard Cycle (BSC), was used as well.
BSF was developed by R. E. B. Crompton, and his assistant George Field. BSF threads use the 55 degree Whitworth thread form. It was introduced by the British Engineering Standards Association in 1908.
