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:
How long are the #12 brass screws and is it possible to buy just 8? I'm using them for towel hooks, so I don't need them to b water tight.
These are questions best put to the tech gurus at JD. On quantity, though, you would best be served by going to your local hardware store. If the towel hooks are going into studs you are alright. Going into drywall is problematic. Use high quality anchors. I have found the E-Z Ancor 50-Pack Drywall Anchors to be the best. I always keep some on hand.
I don't believe that Jill B should be doing anything which would involve a sharp/pointed object like a screwdriver if she has to ask a question like this. My recommendation would be to hire someone who is qualified.
what is the diameter of these heads?
I'm sorry I can't answer your question. I ordered these but as it turned out they were to short for my project so I had to go elsewhere to get longer screws. Im not sure what I did with these shorter screws. Sorry.
0.438. If you look on the product page, on the right hand side under the image of the screw, you will see a blue box that reads "HOW TO'S". Under that is "WOOD SCREW SIZING". The chart that comes up will give you all the details you need.Cheers.
Wrong Screws For Cleats in same Purchase
Purchased high quality screw but did not fit either cleat size that I purchased with it. Screws are too expensive to send back. I now have 100 screws that I won't use. I ordered the 3" and 4" cleats. The screws didn't fit either one and were way too short. An email may have been in order to ask if these were the screws that I actually wanted for the cleats that I bought. There was no indication of how long the screws needed to be.Or given a recommendation for the screws that I should be buying. I am sure that I am not the first one who ran into this same problem. Shipping costs are outrageous.
