Customer Questions & Answers

Can these be used with pressure treated fence pickets?

I already have these screws on hand. Can they be used to fasten 5/8 fence pickets to 2x4 fence rails? All materials are southern yellow pine with pressure treated with micronized copper azole (MCA).
Asked by: Jay
I have used this screw to put up over 200' of PT Dogeared Fence (Picket by picket all P/T wood) Holds Wonderful for fences. These won't pull out like Nails will and they don't rust either.

#8 1-5/8 in. Star Pan-Head Composite Deck Screws (1 lb.-Pack) is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I am a former professional licensed GC and Engineering contractor. Purchased several boxes of 1lb... I am a former professional licensed GC and Engineering contractor. Purchased several boxes of 1lb and 5lb of these for the first time in lengths from 1 5/8 to 3 1/2. Worse than useless. 1. No holding power at all in cedar with or against grain. It appears to be that the threads' pitch or other dimension cause the screw to drill into the wood rather than 'screw'. Not much improvement in holding power in damp PT. Slightly better in dry PT. 2. The T20 head is both too shallow and with rounded internal shoulders making it very hard to seat the bit AND easy for it to spin out. The bits last me only about 20 screws just using a battery cordless driver. I saved myself some money by taking my diamond Dremel disk and sanding down the bits twice. Also, a number of the screws had too thick coating inside the heads - also causing a waste of time to wiggle the bit down and trying to seat it. 3. It appears that these are actually made outside the USA and have a metric diameter. Even the 1 5/8 diameter is a tight fit into metal framing connectors and as soon as it hits the final thread qroup, bogs down and the bit spins out. A lot of the fastening takes place at locations and angles where I could not put a lot of force on the driver to keep the bit in the head. This is much less a problem with Phillips type heads because the angle of drining between the head and bit and the head is much less critical. 4. The supplies bits are much softer than aftermarket bits. Yes, bits must be a little softer than the screw, but subjectively, it seems much much softer. Twenty to thirty screws per bit when bits are $1.49 in singles can drive up the total cost of a box of screws by 20%. Probably by design just like the fact that you can usually buy a new ink jet printer for less than the cost of the refill ink.
