FREARSON SILICON BRONZE SCREWS
Do not confuse these screws with brass or brass plated screws. Brass screws are weak and all electroplated screws will rust. Silicon bronze is the best for a marine environment.
Our screws are "full body, wood screws"; this is an important distinction. Many "wood screws" sold today are, in fact, sheet metal screws.
The shank above the threads on a wood screw is the same size as the outside dimension of the threads. Sheet metal screws have a shank the same size as the inside dimension of the threads and tend to break more readily in boatbuilding applications.
Our bronze screws are easier to drive than hot-dipped galvanized and should it be necessary to grind off a corner, they do not lose their corrosion resistance.
NOTE: Screws are now sold in packages of 100 or as noted. Also these are FREARSON head screws and although a Phillips bit should work, many have found the Frearson driver bits we offer below work even better.
