I really like these. They work very well with plywood, MDF or particleboard. As with most screws you need to pay close attention to the pilot hole size, not only to keep these woods from splitting, but also because the heads seem to strip easily if the bit slips in the slots.
I agree that it would be great to package these in larger quantities than 25. Perhaps this would make the price more reasonable. Nearly 20 cents per screw (if you consider shipping) is pretty steep.

You sell two types of screws for MDF materials. If would be nice if you sold the suggested drill bits for these special screws also. Otherwise they seem to work better than what you can get at the local home store.
Editor's note: These screws do not use a specialty bit. They use a 9/64" pilot hole. A 3/16" hole can be used for the thicker head of the screw in the top sheet of material.

It's true that they do not need specialty bit but an appropriately sized step bit does make life a lot easier when using these screws, which, by the way, are outstanding for particle board and MDF.

I really do like these screws. They work well in melamine board. I wish you would sell them in bulk rather than only 25/bag at a time.
