Wood Projects Demand Kreg Screws
Kreg offers a wide selection of specialized screws. Whether its indoor or outdoor applications, hardwoods or softwoods, we've got just the screw you're looking for. Blue-Kote screws (middle) are the best choice for damp or wet applications and work with treated lumber.
Coarse-thread screws are recommended for use with softwoods — as well as for sheet goods such as plywood and MDF — that are soft and not very dense. Coarse screws have deep, aggressive threads that bite into those soft fibers to ensure solid holding power.
Kreg Screws are available in two head styles. Maxi-Loc screws are the Kreg Screw of choice for the majority of applications. These Kreg Screws have a large head that provides maximum bearing surface as the screw pulls tight in the pocket.
Engineered for Pocket-Hole Joinery
The head on a Kreg Screw is perfectly flat on the underside to mates perfectly with the flat bottom in a Kreg pocket hole. When you drive a Kreg Screw into the pocket hole, this flat shape applies force straight toward the screw tip, so it holds the joint tightly together without deforming the pocket, which could split the wood.
The threads on a Kreg Screw stop partway up the screw shank, which leaves a smooth area below the screw head. When the screw is driven in, the threaded portion grabs into the workpiece you’re attaching to, pulling the screw in. The other piece glides freely over the unthreaded part of the screw, allowing that piece to pull tightly against the mating piece — without unnecessary threads that can actually push the joint apart.
The new Kreg Screw packaging features labels that clearly show the information you need — screw size, thread type, head type, screw material, and recommended usage. Plus, the new containers are durable, resealable, stackable, and even reusable. A material thickness chart can be found on the underside of the containers.
Kreg Zinc Screws are a good choice for a wide variety of indoor projects with limited exposure to the elements. Zinc screws provide adequate rust protection, and serve as an affordable alternative to our more protective Blue-Kote™ and stainless screw varieties. Available in a variety of sizes, thread options, head styles, and quantities.
Kreg 2-1/2-inch #8 Coarse Washer-Head Pocket Hole Screws work well in 1-1/2-inch thick material. The washer head of this screw is a very popular head style, as the wide bearing surface of the head will not overdrive in the bottom of the pocket. This is especially important in softer material such as plywoods and composites. The screw also features a type 17 auger tip that self-taps its own hole, eliminating the need to predrill in even the hardest materials. Kreg screws also have larger diameter steel shanks than many other screws on the market today making for an impressively strong screw that is almost impossible to break. These screws have a bronze-colored finish and a dry-lubricant coating that eases driving torque and provides greater rust resistance.

My only hang up was I ordered this and one other set of screws and they shipped them in one of those plastic bag things instead of a box so when I opened it all the screw boxs were broken open and screws all mixed in together. Not the best choice for shipping.
The kit has not been used yet. The screws however are another matter entirely!!!
Do yourself a favor and try the Kreg screws, you will get rid of those drywall screws pronto, or at least relegate them to their proper second place role.
These screws cut their own pilot hole and have a reduced shank, so if you select the correct length, they allow the top board to pull down tight without your having to drill a clearance hole. Plus the washer head means no splitting of your wood.
BTW - the pilot drill from the kit, though it has never been used to drill a pocket hole to make a joint, has had lots of use as a countersink, it has a wonderful depth guide and is of course perfectly sized for the screws.
Warning, this pilot drill gives new meaning to the term "razor sharp" - even the flutes will slice the unwary, please don't ask me how I know this!!!
