Question

does this screw work with a #2 phillips head screwdriver?

Asked on 12/28/2011 by Barbara Schechter

Top Answer

Yes. Be sure to dill a pilot hole and counter-sink a place for the head. If you try to force it in you will most likely strip out the X on the head of the bit.

Answer

8

Answered on 05/15/2013 by JOHN JEPSON

Answer

The larger the screw size the larger the diameter. #10 is larger than #8, etc. I am not familiar with #18, however, since that would be pretty large. Steve

Answered on 05/14/2013 by STEVEN JACKSON

Answer

Screws are sized with the diameter number smaller to larger so 8 is smaller than 18. A number 14 happens to be 1/4" diameter

Question

i am drilling into an african hardwood with a #8 SS wood screw - do i need to pre-drill a hole or is it okay just to sink it right into the wood? pre-drilling is kind of a pain, so is there a wood screw that can be used which is designed to self-drill? Allen

Asked on 01/22/2012 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Take the time to pre drill you will not split the wood or strip the screw. John

Answer

Predrilling is a lot less painful then snapping the head on the screw. I have built and restored boats and know this lesson all to well. What I do on a non tapered screws is to get out my caliper, measure the thickhess of the screw down the shaft of the screw then pick a drill bit that is just a tighter then this measurement. Make sure the drill bit is smaller then the shaft of the screw if the threads are removed. This method avoids the worry of misreading the drill bit size. On tapered screws I use a tapered drill bit with adjustable depth and countersink and run a quick test on a piece of scrap wood. to make sure the depth of the drill and the countersink work right with the screw. Hardwood is so expensive these days the I go the extra effort to make sure I don't mess up the wood....PREDRILL.......have fun.

Answer

you have to predrill any wood to put a screw in to get a decent job

Answered on 01/23/2012 by GEOFFREY HOOTS

Answer

It better to per drill the hole with a counter sink for the screw head. It will look better and in the long run be easier.

Question

How long of a screw is necessary for screwing two 5/4 (full inch) boards together?

Asked on 06/20/2013 by Jim Krzywicki

Top Answer

If you are going to countersink the screw flush and not plug the hole then either 1 1/2 or 1 3/4 should work. If you are going to plug the hole, be sure to use a good countersink, set the stop or mark the countersink to cut 1/4" depth and use 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 screws. hope this helps

Answer

Jim, The usual recommendation is to have the screw penetrate into the supporting structure 1.5 times the thickness of the supported piece. However, in your case, this is not possible since they are both 1". I would use a 1 3/4" wood screw of the largest reasonable size with proper countersink and pilot hole. This will give you as much penetration as possible without coming through the other side. If it is a critical application with a lot of load you might consider through-bolting. Steve

Answered on 06/20/2013 by STEVEN JACKSON

Answer

Depends on whether you are countersinking the screws and using adhesive between the boards. If you are doing both, go with an inch and a quarter. If you are doing neither, add another half inch.

Question

I used to work in a boatshop in the 80's. The most common screw by far was the 1.25" X #8 SS FH phillips wood screw. We used them for everything and almost every "cleat" that was used for interior woodwork. My question is what is the standard for today's boatshop? Is this style screw still the gold standard for boat construction or are people chosing square or some other drive style and if so why?

Chuck, I have been working in a yard for some time now, and these are still the best all around fasteners. There is always a box of these in the tool kit. Steve

Answered on 03/07/2013 by STEVEN KIBLER

Answer

Hi Chuck I use square drive all the time due to ease of use and the fact that the screw rarely strips. That being said, I have spoken to boat builders who swear by Phillips head. Hope that helps

Question

Is the #8 x 1" SS fully threaded?

Asked on 09/04/2014 by Ken Ballema

Top Answer

No. If it were fully threaded, it would not pull the two materials together. There is enough unthreaded portion to pull in about 1/4" of material, such as 1/4" plywood to a 3/4" stringer. Never buy fully threaded screws except for drywalling!
