Robertson Drive Screws: Flathead, #6, 1-1/2 inch
Finding a good wood screw is a challenge. I only use Robertson® brand screws. Highly engineered and specifically designed for cabinet making and general woodworking, I think they are the best screws on the market today. Robertson drive screws are a uniquely Canadian product, almost impossible to find outside of Canada.
Our Robertson® brand screws feature the Robertson drive head and its famous "cling-fit." A Robertson drive screw head has a slightly tapered, square-shaped socket in the head and a Robertson driver has a matching shaped protrusion on the tooltip. This tapered shape makes inserting the driver into the socket easier and keeps the screw on the tooltip without the user needing to hold it there.
Our Robertson® screws have deep, coarse threads with minimum body diameter which causes less material displacement and provides excellent holding, especially in softwoods and man-made material (MDF, plywood, etc.). Sharp thread angles and serrated starter teeth requires less drive torque than standard screws.

Really excellent fasteners
These are great. I've slowly been using up all the other screws I own and replacing them with these. They're sharp, they drive well, they sink nicely, and they're consistently high-quality across multiple batches. My only critique is that there has been some inconsistency with the drive type. The pictures advertise them as being a combo Phillips-Robertson head but I've found many that are just Robertson. Which isn't a deal-breaker for me, I like using the Robertson drive better anyway, but it has been a minor inconvenience when I had a Phillips driver handy and then had to go swap it out.
Wood screw review
They are a flat head screw version of the Kreg pocket screws, with the Kreg driver working perfectly for them. Very useful product.
#6, 1-1/2 inch wood screws
They performed exactly as expected. I wished I had ordered more in different sizes. Any product that is sold by Rob Cosman is the best!
