Product Details

#8 Silicon Bronze Frearson Oval 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.

Info & Guides

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 a fastener lubricant to avoid breakage.

Great Quality Product from JD
By Dan@ Highland Canoe from Two Harbors, MN

The screws are very strong and will not strip if using the frearson head, much better than Phillips. Great price and would recommend. I use them on gunwales for canoe and boat building and work great!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Drill twice ! I am going into black walnut and white ash. I opted for a 1/8" drill bit for the anchor hole
