You might try cc fasteners. I have found that they are cheaper than most.

Good to know. Thanks.

I drove 99% of my frearson screws with a Phillips bit. Having the right sized hole is critical in hardwoods.

old thread, but since I just got quoted, let me update:

I switched to square-drive very early in the project (over a year ago), and since then the number of torn-out heads can be counted on one hand.

Square drive all the way!

(If anyone offered a sil-bronze in Torx, I'd be in heaven!)
