Re: Screws for floor

These are what I used to screw down my deck boards on my trailer. they went into the 3/16 thick angle crossmembers fairly easy using my dewalt 18 volt drill. the wings make the wood hole slightly bigger then break off at the metal so the threaded portion wont screw into the wood and try to lift your lumber back up when the screw hits the metal and begins drilling.

I wonder if an air screw driver would work better than an electric one.
I have both a dewalt 18v and an air drill. both of em will put the screws in, but using them in tandem (one with a pre drill, on to screw in) was the quickest. they both will send the screws in, but with no pre drilling, it took longer. wasnt a quick process. maybe thats just me. i do think if you have a compressor that an air drill is a beautiful thing to have though. has been invaluable to me during the conversion. always have a ton of power even at the end of the day when the cordless batteries are all dead.
