These would be the greatest screws I've ever used if it wasn't for 1 thing: they are only available in size 8. I bought a package of them and built a moderately complex shop stand for my omnijig dovetail jig and routers. The fit and finish is great. The square drive is unbeatable and they seem to have no issue without pilot holes. They remind me of kreg screws, only with countersunk flat heads. I am sure #8 is strong enough, but it requires you to drill pilot holes with small bits. I couldn't find long 3/32" drill bits. While I know these are self-tapping, would much prefer to actually drill a proper pilot hole. It's so frustrating that there's a Rockler near me, the price is the same as my local hardware store's inferior screws, but I am stuck with one size. My project turned out great. I just wish have been more comfortable with #10 screws and hate using delicate drill bits.
"Rockler Rocks. They have the best customer service.I am disabled and elderly so when I receive great service it takes me back to the days when everyone gave good service. Thank You Rockler you are the best. Keep up the good work." -
