If you are a fan of Star-Drive Screws, we have some good news for you: McFeely’s has contracted with a major screw manufacturer for production of Star Drive screws to our standards. That means that you won’t give up any of the strength and general product quality that you have come to expect from McFeely’s just so you can use the popular Star recess. Anyone that has ever worked on an Americanmade automobile built in the last 20 years or so will quickly recognize the Star-Drive recess (also known as 6 lobe, and trademarked by Cam-Carr Textron® as Torx®). It was developed to provide superior resistance to cam-out compared to several of the other common recesses of the time, and it could be used with auto-feed screw guns.
While they do not have the “stick fit” of Square Drive, the unique Star-Drive recess does center the bit very nicely, and like Square Drive, driver bit cam-out is virtually eliminated. These screws have the same deep threads, semi-flared head, and superior strength of our other Square Drive Screws. Auger point. Imported.

Comments about 8 x 1-1/2 Wood Screws, Yellow Zinc Plated, Flat Head, Star Drive:
Torx screws have a very solid drive. Some square drive screws vary in the actual size of the square opening. Stainless square drive screws seem to strip easily.So, I'm now trying Torx drive. These are a good value and are hard to find locally.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
