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.
Don't forget to add some Screw Lube to help drive these screws home. Less effort in driving, less stripped heads, and protection from corrosion is right here with Fair Wind Screw Lube - Specifically formulated for boat building!
Screws came right on time. Only issue was I ordered frearson head and received slot head. Just a little more elbow work.
Glad to find a company that will sell small quantities of different screw sizes. My old go-to company Jamestown Distrubutors only sells by the box of 100. Would have cost me close to $100 buck just to get the 4 large screws I needed.
Shipping was just as quick as any other option. The best part about Fairwind is I can buy the quantity I need. Other places have boxes of 50 or 100. That adds up fast when ordering 3” No. 14 screws. I only needed 20. Fairwind will be my go to place for bronze.
The best Silicone bronze screws around. I’ll surely be buying again. Very helpful, thank you
Excellent product and service. I will continue to purchase from them.
