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.
These longer Blue-Kote screw were ordered for an outdoor project, a little shed to store the stuff that is now scattered all over the place. This was, of course, an outdoor project and is made with 2X4s, so the 2.5" weather resistant screws were selected.
The longer screws are no harder to use than the shorter ones. Despite using an impact driver (which is a very good tool for this fastening system), no screws were broken or stripped. They are obviously high quality. Most of us have used cheap-brand screws that are just are too soft and easily broken.
It remains to be seen how long the screws will last, whether the "Blue-Kote" stands up. I used redwood and pressure-treated wood and they can be tough on metal fasteners, but I have faith that Kreg uses a quality coating.
Also, as a bonus, these screws can be used as surface-mount, non-pocket fasteners, whenever that flat head configuration would be useful. The blue ones would look cool on some projects.
The only improvement I’d like to see is a beefier build quality for this 2-1/2”. I’d prefer a #10 vs. these #8.
