Wow! These super-long timber screws will make you put your hammer away forever! No more drilling 1/2" holes for rusty rebar, then slugging away with a sledge hammer for hours. With a self-drilling point, these screws go into pressure-treated lumber like a hot knife through butter, they won’t back out like nails, and they offer substantially greater holding power. The new “Spider™” Drive (like an 8-point star) works great (you get a free bit with each pack of 25, or 3 bits per carton). The 3/16" shank has approximately 2" of 1/4" diameter threads and an oversize 5/8" diameter by 1/16" thick head (dimensions are nominal). A special black epoxy corrosion-resistant coating is extra slippery. Use of these screws in Redwood or Western Red Cedar is likely to result in discoloration. Mix or match for pricing discount. Made in the USA.

Comments about FastenMaster 1/4 x 6 Headlok Timber Screws, Black Epoxy Coated, Wafer Head, Spider Drive:
I used these great screws to build a 8 by 20 foot raised bed of 4x4s four pieces high. These screws went through the wood like it was not there. They pulled in warped timbers withoiut effort. I could even remove them with out being perfectly prependicular to the screw head. The bit left wiggle room. I am amazed that you get free bits with each box of screws. I insatalled close to a hundred screws and I'm still using the original bit.Do not buy extra bits.
A Real Time Saver
from Toano, VA
The other reviews posted on this product were spot on. I needed to install some 4x4s for a simple landscaping project; however, I didn't want to go through the hassle of drilling holes for rebar. These were a real time saver. The box of screws also came with three drill bits, which was nice (I broke one after sinking about a hundred screws).Thanks to the other reviewers who posted very helpful comments.
Stablizing Outside Brick Walls to House.

Comments about 1/4'' x 6'' Extra-Long Wafer Head Timber Screws - Spider Drive:
Our house is settling and causing cracks in bricks. When started repairing the bricks we found out tat most of the metal tabs that were suppose to be holding the bricks to the frame of the house were not used. We counter sunk holes drilled in the Brick at the studs and used the screws to hold the brick in place.
Staircase With Wafer Head Spider Drives
By Do-it-myself-er, Chuck
from Port Angeles, WA
I know that these are suggested for outdoor timbers, but they were a beautiful finishing touch to my heavy timber staircase and guard-rails. I predrilled with 3/16 bit, to about 1 inch short of the end of the treads. I used the 16 inch screws to penetrate the front of a 3 1/2 inch stair tread, a 3 1/2 inch spacer, the back of another 3 1/2 inch stair tread, and then 5 1/2 inches into a support beam. This left two screw heads visible, two inches from the front of each tread. 6 and 8 inch screws secure spindles to the treads, and 2 7/8 inch screws hold rails to the spindles. The heads are countersunk just below flush, and it is beautiful.
