Actually except for framing and hinges, I drill, countersink, and make plugs for all my screws in woodwork. So, I use these the same as regular screws. For framing/carcass work in soft wood though it’s nice that they self drill. It saves a lot of work. For those who say we need to take the time like the old timers used to, well maybe we need to go back to square tempered nails or wooden screw pegs??? And what you using a battery driver for? You should be using a hand driver.

It’s like the guy who took a handful of pills every day and had a pacemaker who said, “If things were like the olden days we’d all be a lot better off.”... Ya, he’d be dead!

Progress people, progress.
