#8 Bronze Wood Screws Oval Head Frearson Customer Questions and Answers

2 of 2 Questions

Question

I have church chairs with screws falling out bronze 8 x .75 inch oval head recessed purchased from you years ago by someone else. The chairs holes are opening up. Should I go with bigger diameter same length screws and which is bigger 6 or 10?

Top Answer

The #10 is the larger screw, but another thought would be to go to an online woodworking supplier for good joint glue to help secure the old dry wood. Rockler or Klingspor's

Answer

#10 is bigger, maybe go to 1" long unless there is a risk of breaking through. Also make sure you have a Frearson driver bit; a regular Phillips bit will chew up the heads. PTL.

Answer

A # 10 screw is bigger than the # 6. You may try gluing a toothpick into the hole and using the same screw you have. If not use a # 10 same length.

Answered on 03/05/2015 by DAVID FREUND

Answer

There are 2 options. 1. Put a little wood glue in the hole and then insert a couple of round wood toothpicks in the hole and break them off flush with the surface. Then reuse the same size screw. 2. Go to the next larger screw (#10). Before inserting the larger screw, drill out the hole with the appropriate size tapered bit. As with all bronze screws, lubricate the screw with soap or other appropriate material to prevent breakage. Also be sure to use only Frearson screwdriver bits. Hope that this is helpful!

Answer

Probably better to remove the screws, fill the holes with something like an epoxy and redrill for the same size. Moving to a larger #10 will have a larger head so will require drilling the recess or countersink larger.

Answer

#10 is bigger and I'd use a longer screw if possible.

Answer

A #10 is larger than a #6. You should pilot for the new larger screws with a tapered drill bitt, available from Jamestown, to avoid splitting. Good Luck

Answer

I would fill these holes with-like wood and glue, than after the plugs have dried, pre drill a hole for the #8's that you already have. Thus reusing those screws. The #8 was chosen as the correct size screw, and as you stated the issue was the hole got too big, time to make the hole smaller. ( just my opinion without looking at the chairs ) # 10 is bigger than #8, ( fact )

Question

I'm trying to replace screws that have gone missing. What is the physical description of this product in terms of inches (diameter of the screw)? I'm trying to match a 1.5 x 11/64. Or, is there a # to fractional conversion chart? Barry

Asked on 10/29/2013 by Barry Karow

Top Answer

Hi Barry, 11/64 is equivalent to a #8 screw. For online screw size charts just google "wood screw sizes" Make sure you get a Frearson driver bit or two for these screws, Phillips bits will chew them up. Terry.

I cannot answer your specification questions but I have bought several sizes brass screws in quantity and find them to be reasonably priced, of good quality and will buy again.

Answered on 10/30/2013 by CARL STROH

Answer

Jamestown has a really handy chart that converts diameters etc to screw #'s, #10, 12, and so on. go to the home page and try entering 'wood screw size chart' or something to that effect.
