When many think of wood screws they picture a “traditional” tapered wood thread. Today, wood screws come in a variety of thread styles – not to cause confusion, but to make sure that you have the correct wood screw for your fastening needs.
|DEEP THREAD wood screws are characterized by a reduced diameter shank resulting in a deep thread profile. A single lead thread, meaning that one revolution advances the screw one pitch. The deep thread form provides superior resistance to pull-out.
||WOOD SCREW STYLE threads are a single lead, extra-thick thread that is used primarily on solid brass or silicon bronze screws to accomodate the limitations of these soft materials.
||TAPERED WOOD threads or "cut" thread wood screws have a uniform diameter throughout the length of the shank. That is because the screw threads are cut into the shank such that they increase in depth toward the point. Hence the illusion of a tapered screw.
