Adding a self drilling point to a trim screw should put whoever thought of it into the Fastener Hall of Fame. They are designed to go through the trim and sheet rock into a 14 to 20 ga. steel stud, but they work well with wood studs too - just make sure you bury plenty of screw in the stud (the fine threads don’t have as much holding power as the deep thread screws designed for wood studs). These have a #1 Square Drive, so they can take more torque than the Phillips recess types. Remember that the head is very small, and the recess shallower than normal, so even these require a bit of finesse to drive - proceed carefully. Made in Taiwan. #1 Square Recess.

Best trim screw I have ever used
By Ted - Croom Cabinetry
About Me Professional
Comments about 7 x 1-5/8 Wood Trim Screws, Unplated Steel, Trim Head, Square Drive:
The self drilling feature cuts a perfect clean hole that is easy to fill for a painted project. The square drive head is easily buried in hardwood and the threds give a very tight secure finished connection. The best trim screw that I have ever used in fastening hundreds of cabinets,hutches and face framing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Casual Do-It-Yourselfer
Used these to attach 3/4" oak face frame to 3/4" oak plywood and they worked great. Only had one case of splitting the plywood and all fasteners were put in within 3/8" of the edge. I did pre-drill all holes...
