Question

Can this screw be used as a cement screw like a tapcon?

Asked on 01/21/2012 by Bob schlimgen

Top Answer

I've never tried using them in concrete, and I personally would not attempt it. You really need a tapcon style thread for anchoring in concrete.

Answer

I used this screw to help build a new shower. It had to go through cement board and a few layers of "other stuff" that no other screw would. It did so beautifully, but I did not try drilling it into the slab itself. Hope that helps.

Answered on 01/23/2012 by MICHAEL CLARK

Answer

I would not know. I used them to secure an new hatch on my boat. The screws went into 2" solid fiberglass without stripping out the hole.

Answered on 01/23/2012 by SCOTT ABBEY

Answer

I would not use any ss screws in cement. Better hardware stores have cement screws that look almost like brass for the color of their plating. The threads look similar to those on the deck screws. Hope this helps.

Answer

Cedar has a tendency to split. To be safe, I would predrill.

Answered on 08/09/2018 by lou

Answer

I would predrill the railings slightly smaller than screws, no need to drill posts.  Have a great day Henry & Sandy

Answered on 08/09/2018 by h_sunicorn2

Answer

Probably not but check to see how much torque is required to drive the screw. You don't want to be twisting of any heads. Dave

Question

I am looking to fasten redwood planks to stainless steel angles with these screws and wanted to know the thread diameter for pre drill of the angle. What is the diameter of the threads or shaft?

Asked on 10/29/2015 by Tyson Krumholz

Top Answer

The designer wants no surface hardware and no plugs in the planks.

Answer

I don't know the diameter and they are all in the deck so I can't measure them. I'm surprised Jamestown can't measure one. I'm afraid your short cut won't be a long term solution . I'd use stainless bolts ,they cost more and require more work but far more reliable.

Answered on 10/29/2015 by CHARLES V KINSLEY

Answer

Thread dia. .150, so a 5/32" minimum drill will work but I would go with a 3/16"

Answered on 10/29/2015 by FRANK CONKLIN

Answer

I cannot give you a specific answer to your question but my first reaction is that this is the wrong fastener for your application. This is a wood screw not intended to fasten metal parts.

Can I use stainles deck screws to apply the plywood of my boat. Bob ?

Asked on 02/16/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I used these screws to make repairs on my plywood Carolina boat and they worked wonderfully. They are much less likely to break or strip out than the brass screws.

Answer

I did not use these on a boat, however I did use them to attach Atlantic white cedar siding to my house at the beach and this would be a similar use to what you are considering. Be sure to use the square drive screws. I predrilled my holes but was able to countersink the screws perfectly using a variable speed drill with a clutch without using a countersink bit to dress the predrilled holes.

Answered on 02/20/2013 by EDWARD COLE

Answer

Ideally, use 316 stainless screws.

Answered on 03/03/2013 by ATLAS PRESS

Answer

Yes, they will work excellent for that appliciation. I recommend you pre-drill and countersink tool. You can find the correct one to use on the "Users Also Bought" on the page were the screws are.

Out door applications such as what ?

Asked on 01/15/2013 by Sohrab Moafizad

Top Answer

Almost anything. 316 stainless is the most "stainless " of the stainless steels. It is what is used for salt water marine applications. These screws are perfect for decking because they won't rise or stain the wood. I used them to put together adirondack chairs.

Answer

I used them to build a deck - that's why they're called deck screws galvanized screws corrode when you use them in cedar or treated lumber - so stainless steel will give you best looking and longest lasting deck - but they are expensive and quite thin at the top so I ended up snapping a few - especially the longer ones where you need a lot of torque to drive them. This can be overcome by pre drilling slightly larger holes, using a lubricant and using a low torque setting on your driver. I also used them to build planters from cedar.

Answered on 01/15/2013 by ADRIAN VAN SCHIE

Answer

I live on a small Caribbean island where salt fog rusts plated screws and even galvanized screws within a few years. I used these on a variety of projects including a chicken coop, a large outside battery box associated with a solar power system, a cover for a propane tank storage vault and others.

Question

How do I get these in phillips-head, not square drive? Does 6x 1 1/4 mean 6" long and threads go up 1 1/4" to the top?

Asked on 07/04/2014 by BruceDavid Johnson

Top Answer

6 x 1 1/4 means 1.25 inches long. The "6" refers to the shank diameter or size. Screws of all types are sized by shank size. I think typical deck or wood screws range from 4 to 12. As to availability of Phillips-head, Jamestown Distributors will have to answer that.

Answer

I have never seen them with phillips - head .Most are driven using a power tool and the square is a lot easier to use.

Answered on 07/05/2014 by CHARLES V KINSLEY

Answer

The figure 6 refers to the diameter of the screw, and 1 1/4 to the length. Stainless screws strip easily, and the square head is better than the Phillips head. Hope this helps.

Question

Is it considered a non-ferrous metal?

Asked on 02/16/2012 by Brian Little

Top Answer

Yes, since it is a metal that does not contain iron it is a "non-ferrous" metal. Ergo, rusts very little or none at all depending on the type of non ferrous metal it is. Stainless is very rust resistant.
