Robertson Drive Screws: Flathead, #8, 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.

makeup shipment due to forgotten bag of screws in previous order
I had received 7 of 8 bags of screws from my previous order, and this one makes the final shipment to complete my original order.
Best screws ever.
Love the Robertson drive screws. Can’t figure out how they haven’t completely replaced Phillips head.
Best screws for just about any project.
Products that deliver as promised.
I don’t do a lot of projects anymore that require screws. That said, timing was everything because I had a utility project come up just after the screws arrived. They were a pleasure to work with. I probably didn’t have to, but I drilled clearance holes in the top piece of wood and the self tapping nature of the screw worked perfectly going into the second piece. And the self countersinking ability of the screw totally eliminated the need to countersink before driving the screw home. Side note. I’m a woodworking nerd, film everything. The fact that your father can make an occasional error after all these years and then show how to fix it make the rest of us feel better about our mistakes. Thanks. Stan P.
