Frearson 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.

I used these to drive #8 Fearson head silicon-bronze screws, and the bits work. They fit in and drive the screw. Unlike the philips-head bits I own, this bit does not get stripped when the screw stops and it's bit vs. screw. The screw will strip, but the bit won't.

I am restoring wood lapstrake boats which have a ton of Frearson screws and this bit is the real ticket for removing and re-installing this type screw.

I've ordered a number of Locally very hard to find hardware pieces from Jamestown now and the products are always "as advertised" delivered on time and reasonably priced even with the shipping. Just waiting for the weather to warm up so I can start building in my unheated workshop.

Yes its a Frearson bit, which are hard to find these days. I wish Jamestown stocked the #3 size as well.

I was never made aware of the difference between the Frearson and the standard Philips screws and drivers until I read the info in the Jamestown web info. I would recommend any boat owner to at least try the Frearson screw/driver combination. The first time I used them it was an eye-opener. Thanks to Jamestown.

The easiest way to ruin your day is to use a phillips bit on a frearson screw. Most of the wood screws on boats are frearson head, so it's imperitive to have these bits on hand, especially with powered screwdrivers.
