WoodSpur... the driving force

A decent wood screw is one of the most common pieces of consumable hardware. We use them by the handful on a daily basis for all-manner of fixing jobs and without as much as a second thought. We have been searching for a range of screws to meet the high quality and performance that our woodworkers were demanding - we have now selected the best.

We ran the WoodSpur screws through exhaustive tests with professional craftsmen and tradesmen - using torque drills in many different types of wood and situations - not just once but many hundreds of times.

We compared the performance and strength of our range of WoodSpur screws against the market leaders - we made improvements and now we believe we have the best!

Special features that make WoodSpur a better choice!

Plated to protect against corrosion

Premium WoodSpur screws are Zinc plated and undergo a further process of passivation. This gives them their distinct yellow colouring and greatly increases resistance to corrosion.

Double angle head

Beefing up the head where it meets the body of the screw make WoodSpur screws much stronger. This minimises the risk of the head shearing under the final tightening torque.

Heat treated

WoodSpur screws are hard and resistant to snapping with the correct tensile and torsional strengths to resist loads they are subject to.

Self countersinking head

Six ribs on the underside of the head help the screw self countersink and lessen the torque required for a clean flush finish.

Self cutting tip requires no pre-drilling

The tip cuts as it penetrates and the initial portion of the thread engages immediately. The sharp point helps when placing the screw and prevents skating. (We still recommend drilling pilot holes in very hard wood.)

Deep, sharp threads

The thread slices effortlessly through the timber without tearing the fibres, making for a much stronger fixing.

Suitable for use in soft or hardwood, chipboard, OSB or MDF

You can rely on a WoodSpur in all wood materials, natural or manmade.

Wax lubricated threads

After plating, WoodSpur screws undergo a further coating to reduce friction. Lower friction needs less power means more screws driven on a single battery charge.

Correctly formed recess

Whether Pozidrive or Torx, the correctly formed recess minimises the risk of cam-out.

Top Tips

Top tip 1

Maximum Overall Screw Length - approximately 3mm less than the combined thickness of the two boards being joined.

Top tip 2

Maximum Screw Holding Strength - a longer screw of smaller diameter provides more holding strength than a shorter screw of a larger diameter.

Top tip 3

Driving of Screws into Hardwoods - rubbing the screw with beeswax prior to driving will ease the process considerably.
