bought these to go with my new k4h kreg kit. the kit comes with sample bags of screws, more than i expected, but if you are doing a project you will want to have more than comes with the kit. fyi: these are course threads and are meant for soft woods as well as mdf and plywood. the fine threads are meant for hardwoods. if you do multiple projects with both soft and hard woods you will want a box each of the right lengths and thread-types. they won't break the bank and you will have what you need. some reviewers have said these are too expensive and suggest using regular screws. i don't have a lot of experience with this, but i would suggest spending the extra and using the ones designed for the pocket hole.
I used the Kreg 1 1/2" pocket hole screws to assemble some poplar face frames. I know you pay a little more for the Kreg name, but they're worth it. I went with a bargain brand on my last project and broke two heads off. The pan heads on these make it impossible to split your stock.
