Brass Wood Screws Flat Head Slotted 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.

MET / STD:
I need 3/16 inch brass flat head slotted wood screws for hinges in antique writing box. What size is the smallest offered by Jamestown?
#2 x 1/4" is the smallest we carry.
what's the diameter of the head?
HiHead is 4mm across.
4.1mm is the diameter of the head of the #2 brass wood screws that I bought in 2011.

HiThe diameter of the head is .158Â’Â¢?? (about 5/32Â’Â¢??). They are nice quality screws but you should Â’Â¢??threadÂ’Â¢?? your pilot holes with a steel screw as the soft brass slots are easily damaged.
The head diameter seems to be very close to 5/32"(3.97mm). The head will not go through the 9/64" hole in my drill bit gauge but does barely slip through the 5/32" hole.
The heads on these screws mic out to about 4.00 mm, so just a hair over 5/32.
Head diameter = 3/16" or a smidge over 4 mm if you prefer a metric measurement
The heads on these are right at 4.00 mm, so just a shade over 5/32
Great small screws
Had no problem using these screws but it turned I really needed a 5/8 screw (which is not available -yet)- yes you can cut a 3/4 in to size and maintain a good screw lead
Hard to find #2-3/4
I would love to also find some #2 Brass Finish Washers to go with these screws.I use small brass screws a lot. And, in this case I was restoring an antique item and needed 3/4" long #2 screws, with a slotted round top. I couldn't find the round top anywhere, so I settled for these screws since at least they were the right size. I use a pilot hole, and they were very durable, and I haven't broken a single screw yet, which is amazing with a such a small brass screw, especially with it's length. [...]
