I have between 60 and 80 drawer slides to install. The boxes will be made of plywood and MDF and the cabinets are made of particle board. I plan on using 5/8” #6 philip head screws.
Is ther one screw that will work in both Particle board and MDF?
Where is a good place to get a good screw at a fair price?
I was going to install 5 screws on each side of the box slide and 5 screws on each cabinet slide for a total of 20 screw/ drawer or sliding shelf.

Thank for the help.

I would use a Robertson screw head… less chance of slipping and stripping the screw. Just my 2 cents.
