How to Choose the Right Screw
- Using the wrong screw can frustrate you and possibly ruin your project. Choose the right one and save yourself the headache. Here are some guidelines.

- Use lag screws, which are heavy-duty wood screws, for wood-metal fastening.
- Use wood screws to hold wood.
- Drive a sheet metal screw into thin metals after making a pilot hole. These screws have threads that cut the hole and are made to fasten metal to metal.

- Leave the tops of roundhead wood screws exposed. They are used for attaching thin wood pieces or metal to thicker pieces of wood.
