Flat Head, Oval Head, Frearson Drive, and Slotted Drive
These Silicon Bronze wood screws are the highest quality available. We carry them in a variety of sizes and lengths, and with Flat Heads, Oval Heads, in Frearson Drive, and in Slotted Drive.
What makes them the best?
Full Body: Our wood screws have a shank diameter that is the same size as the outside of the threads. That means your clearance hole will be completely filled, creating a waterproof seal. Full bodied screws are made from a larger wire stock than screws that aren't full bodied, meaning they are stronger when they hold and stronger when you are driving them in.
Cut Threads: The threads are cut, not rolled. Rolled threads have a reduced shank size and don't drive in with less torque because the threads are sharper. Most other companies produce rolled thread screws and you'll find they twist and break when driving them in, and can leave a compromised fastener in your project without even knowing it.
Cold Pressed Heads: The heads on these screws are cold formed, which hardens them through a process called "work hardening". Experience less stripped screw heads with our cold pressed heads.
Guaranteed 651 Silicon Bronze Alloy: We guarantee that you'll get the correct alloy when you order through us. 651 Silicon Bronze is the ideal alloy for wood screws in your traditional boat building project, therefore it's the only alloy we will supply our wood screws in. The others may be cheaper, but they're likely not the silicon bronze alloy they claim to be.
Traditional boatbuilders know that there is a glut of imposter alloys and bargain wood screws out there on the market, but Fair Wind Fasteners only supplies Silicon Bronze wood screws of the highest marine grade.
Very friendly service, received product quickly. The cardboard box was wet on one corner and the cardboard was deteriorated exposing the screws to loss. One way to avoid this would be to place screws in a plastic bag inside box but this would not be a green solution. I only lost two screws but the free pencil made up for lost so I accept it
