The combination of properties is what makes this post screw so brilliant. The Torx 40 impression makes it possible to screw the screw into the wood extremely quickly. The razor-sharp cutting tip ensures that pre-drilling in softwoods is not necessary and the coarse screw thread makes the screw turn very quickly in the wood.
How do I Use the Post Holder Screw?
When you use softwood and your post holder has a round mounting hole of 9 or 11 mm, screwing in these post screws is very easy. You place the post in the post holder and screw the screws. When you use hardwood and the steel that you want to mount on wood does not have a mounting hole, a few more steps are required.
Namely, you should always pre-drill when using hardwood. For 8 mm thick post-holder screws use a 6.0 mm thick hardwood drill and for 10.0 mm thick post-holder screws use an 8 mm thick hardwood drill. It is very important when drilling through steel that you make sure that the screw is easy to pass through the mounting hole. This prevents damage to the screw as well as to the steel to be attached. In most cases, this will be a post holder or a pergola connector.
To pre-drill the steel, always choose a metal drill bit that is 1 mm thicker than the post-holder screw. So for post screws 8 mm, choose a 9 mm thick metal drill. And for the 10 mm thick post-holder screw, take an 11 mm thick metal drill.
