Top Customer Reviews
I gave four stars because the major diameter of the screw does seem a bit undersized. I do realize I am using these not as they were designed and so in a normal pocket hole application the diameter is probably more than enough. A larger diameter however, would make the screw more universal for other applications other than simply the pocket holes. Let's face it, as builders/makers we often use products in ways they weren't originally designed or order to achieve our task. A larger diameter size would allow me to use these in more applications and therefore would cause me to purchase more of this product. A win/win for myself and the Kreg.
With that said, I recently bought more of the blue kote and have been very happy with the results. It's amazing how fast you go through these so if you're constantly working on a project get the bigger box and you won't be disappointed. It's some of the strongest screw with the pocket hole system to join 2x4's as well as using them to join anything without a pocket hole. The drilling is much easier with the sharp tip and again the square head makes torquing a lot easier especially with harder wood material.
The screws worked well, and I expect they will last a long time. We only snapped 2 of them off
My review has to do with the head of the Blue-Kote 'washerhead' square-drive Kreg pocket screw.
Both myself (hobbyist mainly, who does about 20 hours of actual carpentry labor a year), and
my buddy who is a professional who does this stuff on average about 20 hours a week, had the
same issue with a brand new squarehead bit jumping out of the screwhead a LOT. In fact my
pro buddy had MORE trouble than I did. His experience worked against him since these did
NOT work the way he was used to squarehead drives working.
The Kreg washerhead screws do not 'hold' the square bit as well as 'normal' washerhead squarehead screws do.
The bit has a major tendency to jump out UNLESS you run the gun slow and steady and careful, in which case
the bit stays in MOSTLY. I think this might be due to the fact that the kreg screwhead has blue paint inside the
socket, not allowing the bit to 'seat' as well, and also the screwhead at least SEEMS to be thinner than on other
washerhead squarehead screws.
I use this 2 1/2 size the most, especially when working with 2x4s or outdoor pieces. I love that they are weather resistant.
This multipack is a great penny saver. I've bought it twice now and am starting to run out, so I'll have to go for it again.
