Topic tags/keywords: wood screws

Anyone have experience with these:

I’m looking for a good online value on square drive wood screws. The hardware store is not exactly close to me – and I want a good value… not the best screw ever invented that costs $5/screw… just something that won’t strip out and can provide sufficient clamping pressure until the glue dries.

Thanks team.

They look like they should do the job ok. With any wood screw, you need to drill a pilot hole and apply a lubricant to the threads. Even the cheapest screw will hold as long as the above mentioned steps are observed.

Should be OK.
I order all my screws from McFeeleys

But for woodworking stuff I just get the black oxide, not the yellow zinc (~close to the same price regardless)

I started with a ‘combo pack’ then got more/extra of the common sizes I use.

+1 for McFeeley’s and for the black oxide.

Have your say...
