Brass is surprisingly strong but a very soft metal. Brass screws also demand a carefully sized pilot hole to avoid installation breakage. Brass is the traditional choice for a non-corrosive metal and provides a classic look and feel to any project.

Brass Wood Screws Flat Head Phillips Drive These Brass Wood Screws have cut threads and the full-bodied diameter shank desired by boatbuilders. 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.

Is it possible to purchase bronze wood screws in less than 100 count per box?
I wish I could help, but I needed a whole box. For smaller quantities try your local hardware store.
I primarily use brass since my projects aren't exposed to salt water conditions. I've purchased small quantities of brass screws at a local hardware store and at Lowes, Menards, etc. You may find small quantities of bronze screws which are supposed to better for salt water at similar outlets.
Great product but comes 100ct box
what is the tensile strength of a no. 6 brass screw, ca it hold 25 lbs. on a wall or more?
Yes, if inserted into a wall that is adequate.
Absolutely, and especially if you are driving the screw head tight to the material you want to hold in place.
Do you have threes screws in 1 1/4 and 1 1/2 inch?
What does # 4 or # 8 mean -- a way to measure diameter of shank? thanks, D.
Hello David, I believe the 'screw number' is relative to both diameter and shank. On the JD website you can search the type of screw you need and on the lower left side of page - click "how to's" (wood screw sizing).It's a very comprehensive list of screw numbers VS actual dimensions.
I am looking for #3-inch wood screws which would fit standard door hinges and strike plates. What would you suggest? Thanks for a reply!

Suggest you use stainless steel brass is to soft for this purpose
Hi- I am a woodworker and an owner of a 1948 wooden boat so I am constantly on the 'prowl' for hardware and fasteners for projects.I find that often times I end up looking first at Jamestown, and finally ordering from them. Their quality is a lot better then most places and customer service is tops.I'm not sure why you are using 4" screws on a door hings unless it is a replacement and the whole is already enlarged. I would pre-drill and use a product like akempucky (or paraffin or soap) to pre-lubricate. If you are able go for something other then a slot head to get a better set to the screw.I hope this info helps!nate baconWaynesboro, PA
That is an odd size combination for door hinge screws. We buy 10 gauge x 1 1/4" screws. Lock strike plates can take various size screws but the most common size would be 8 gauge x 1 ". I should point out that I am in Australia but most of our hardware is the same as you would find in the US
Is the first number 4 x 3/8 the length in inches?
The first number is the width of the screw. The second number is the length.
Quality to count on
With fewer resources available, it is reassuring to know Jamestown Distributors is a source of quality products that will service those of us who continue to seek the best tools and supplies to address creating and maintaining traditional boats. The threads remind me of those I used when screws weren't mass produced. Lubricating screw after drilling pilot hole ensures smooth entry into the wood, in my case applying a rub rail to teak.

The cut threads easily cut into the mahogany tea trays I made.
