Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pennimf One of the Best Multi-Material Screws Ever!
Decided to renovate my 50 year old garage with a major appliance maker's garage organization system (Gladiator). The system's tracks for hanging cabinets and hooks had to be screwed to the wall studs - two screws per stud for each load bear track.
Not one screw failed, broke or stripped. Each screw self-tapped easily through the thick, molded garage system track pieces - through the 1/4-inch wood wall panels and into the 50+ year old 2 x 4 s. I did drill pilot holes on the ends of the tracks, but not one screw split a track. The provide T-20 bit never stripped and lasted through the installation of 16 tracks - almost a whole box of screws. The T-star screw heads are deep enough to hold a screw on the bit for one-handed driving. SPAX screws are the best I have ever used in a DIY project. I'm retired and have renovated enough over the years to know the difference in the quality of screws and fasteners.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by reubenr Best screw for oak, period.
Made in the USA or Germany says everything. This is a high quality, heavy duty mufti-purpose screw. Being tired of having screws break off while assembling oak furniture, I tried to do my homework and came across these screws. The one review I read was discouraging, but I'm thinking that it was based on a different screw. I tried it on a piece of solid oak without pre-drilling, and it went in like it was butter, and believe it or not, it came out in one piece, no problem. Very impressive, especially for a #8. There are not a lot of screws that come with a warranty, but this one does, not that you will ever need it. SPAX that.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cesco NEVER AGAIN!!!
I never write reviews but this product is so frustratingly horrible that people need to know not to purchase it! They are supposed to be good on wood, masonry, sheet metal, drywall and plastic. NO pre drilling wood it says! You can screw these in a pine 2x4 without them stripping no matter what size bit your use! I've used less than 1/4 of the box and will be throwing the balance away! Dont waste your money!
