Woodscrews - Slotted Countersunk

A slotted head on a fastener is a traditional design that is still commonly used on machine screws but now less popular on woodscrews. The biggest benefit of a slotted drive lies in its simplicity – a slotted screw has a straight slot that has been machined across the whole diameter of the head.

A countersunk head is usually used when no part of the fastener head is required to be protruding above the level of the substrate. Countersunk heads can also be recessed and filled over if a hidden fixing is required. Usually abbreviated to CSK.

As with most types of fasteners, a wide variation of woodscrews is available with the most common types being a twin thread, chipboard, or velocity screw. Each of these types of screws is actually suitable for a large range of applications.

Twin thread woodscrews (both Pozi drive and countersunk) are a traditional woodscrew that gives rapid installation into softwoods. They are also an ideal choice for use with a plastic wall plug when fixing into masonry.

Chipboard woodscrews are best when used with softwoods, chipboard, plastics, and some hardwoods. Many builders and carpenters use chipboard screws as their “go-to” screw for general timber use.

Velocity screws are a premium multi-use screw that can be used with a range of materials including thin sheets, metal, PVC-u, MDF, softwood, and hardwood.

When it comes to the sizing of woodscrews it is still very common to find measurements in both metric and imperial. The diameter of a wood screw is either given in a gauge (imperial), or in millimeters (metric). With the imperial gauge, a number is used, i.e. 8 gauge. A larger gauge number means a larger diameter. Screw gauge numbers actually correspond to a particular fraction of an inch in imperial measurements.

Woodscrew lengths are also often shown in either metric or imperial, or sometimes both.
