8 x 2 XT Square Drive Woodworking Screws, Flat Head, Clear Zinc, 100-Piece
Extra Torque (XT) means just that! Commonly available screws will actually break around 25-30 inch/lbs. While that may be fine for drywall or other light duty applications, woodworking demands something better. HIGHPOINT extra torque woodworking screws are engineered for tough...
light duty applications, woodworking demands something better. HIGHPOINT extra torque woodworking screws are engineered for tough
applications and offer almost twice the torque values of other screws! Special attention is given to design as well as the heat treating process to
produce one tough screw! With a super sharp point and deep, biting threads, these screws will cut their way into just about any common hardwood
you will use. There are many advantages of a Square Drive design. Bits are less likely to jump out of the recess and allow you to use more driving
torque. Square Drive offers a positive “stick-fit” which tends to stay on screwdriver bit tip, which is handy starting screws overhead or from other
difficult angles. The positive fit means your bits will last longer and you are less likely to damage the screw. If you have driven screws that fall off the bit
then you understand what we mean! These screws are unplated and are coated with a specially formulated dry lubricant which reduces driving torque
and offers a minimal amount of corrosion resistance. Color may vary due to variations in the heat treating process and may exhibit shades of grey,
brown or black. Dry lube finish fasteners are recommended for interior applications only. Not recommended for use in ACQ® treated lumber.
