ProMaster™ Saw Tooth Wood Screws - Finally, Screws that Actually CUT their Own Pilot Hole! Take a look at the most revolutionary thing to happen to screw threads in a very long time! You don’t need to look too closely to see that threads near the tip have saw toothed scallops in them. These scallops help the thread actually cut its way into the wood, and help prevent splitting. In fact, recent testing of various lengths driven into a maple block revealed no splitting, unlike both the standard point and Auger Point screws driven into the same block. Even better, manufacturer’s tests show that holding power is increased as well! Should you still drill a pilot hole? For fine cabinetry, I would. After all, the screw is still acting like a wedge to force the wood fibers apart. Drilling a pilot hole removes the excess material, so the screw’s sole function is clamping. #2 Combo Recess. Made in China under US patents.

Comments about 8 x 3 ProMaster Wood Screws, Unplated Steel, Flat Head, Combo Drive:
I avoid Philips and slotted screws like the plague. The square or combo heads so rarely cam out that I get my work done faster, neater and without frustration. The screws start easily and drive into anything. I don't have to worry if I'll be able to extract a screw as I know the head will be intact. Combine these with Akempuky, and I'm unstoppable!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best general purpose wood screws

About Me Professional
I've used thousands of these screws in my cabinet business. Since I scaled back, I now only need smaller quantities, so I buy from McFeely's. They are sharp, strong, start very easily, drive easily, don't need pre-drilling, don't strip and don't cam out. In shorter screws, holds better than the type 17 screws with the notch. Similar to spax screws The only negative is that they aren't plated, can't be used outside---though I do that all the time anyway.
Best Flat Head Wood Screws I've Used
Comments about #8 x 3'' ProMaster Saw Tooth Dry Lube Flat Head Wood Screws:
We make wood crafts that are required to be long lasting and sturdy. I often attach materials that will need to bear stress for many years. The grip of the screws and the ability of the head to take the torq w/o camming out. Best screws I've ever used.
