Strongest screws I've ever used !

Review Summary

I've been hearing about these screws for some time and just happened to pick some up to use, after snapping off a couple of regular lag bolts,in building a mobile base for my new Delta Unisaw. I was hoping these would work better and to my great satisfaction they did. Wow! What a fantastic screw ! I was using these in hard maple using an 18 volt Makita impact driver and I couldn't get these to snap even if I wanted too !
I used both the Spax lag bolts and the flat head wood screws with the same results. I did pre-drill pilot holes for these 1/4 inch screws, but only a 1/8 inch hole. I probably didn't need to but I was afraid that they might break , since I was going into end grain. The only downside I see to these is the fact that they aren't easy to get out once you get them in. They worn you about this in the McFeely's catalog I saw them in. In fact I couldn't get some longer ones out that I had driven in hard maple . So if your careful in your application of these, then these screws would probably be the strongest holding screws you could use since they wouldn't vibrate out over time. You can purchase these at Home Depot and they come in all sizes, lengths, and head configurations. They aren't being carried at my local True Value Hardware store , but on my last visit there I suggested that they might want to look into carrying them.
