Woodscrews - Slotted Round

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 pan head or round head is a domed raised head which has a flat, level underside to it. Round / pan head fixings were actually designed for fixing against metal surfaces, but they are commonly used to fix to a variety of rigid surfaces. The most commonly used fixing in applications where a flush finish is not a necessity.

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.
