#8 Silicon Bronze Wood Screws Frearson Flat Head

#8 Silicon Bronze Frearson Flat Head wood screws appear similar to the Phillips head but the Frearson has a more pointed 75° V shape. The Frearson tool recess is a perfect cross which minimizes cam out, unlike the Phillips head, which is designed to cam out.

Traditional boatbuilders love these Silicon Bronze wood screws because they have cut threads and the full-bodied diameter shank. Unlike rolled thread screws with their reduced shank--these screws have a shank diameter that is the same size as the outside of the threads. This completely fills the clearance hole normally drilled for the shank thus creating a waterproof seal.

Tech Spec Product Info User Generated Content

Silicon Bronze is the traditional choice for marine construction. It is corrosion resistant, helps prevent rot around the screw holes when used under water, and is relatively strong. Although stronger than Solid Brass, Silicon Bronze screws are not as strong as Stainless Steel. They require a carefully sized pilot hole to avoid breakage. We recommend drilling twice (once for the root and once for the shank) as well as using Ackempucky Fastener Lubricant to avoid breakage.

      A great product that takes a good patina

      I make custom bronze hardware, and Jamestown had the best product for the best price that could be patina-ed to match the hardware.

                                These silicon bronze fasteners are the best in the world (that I've found) for boat building. They drive firmly, set tightly, and last years and years in the harshest marine environments. Much easier to work with than stainless.

                                      Hard to find good bronze fasteners and finish washers in my area. Jamestown has a good selection of them....I own a wooden boat and imam always on the lookout for the proper screws for my restoration and rebuilding projects
