To keep from constantly having to drill pilot holes for woodscrews , I started using Sheetmetal screws .
Woodscrews being tapered act as a wedge , without constantly drilling pilot holes , the tapered design leads to splitting , specially in hardwoods .. Sheetmetal screws arent tapered and have coarser threads , so splitting is much less likely to occur ..
I normally charge green dollars for such sage advice .. :yes:
This one's on the house ..
