Features unique to this type of screw are -
- Stainless steel Kreg Screws are designed for use in extreme applications, excessive exposure to salt water, and other exceedingly corrosive environments, such as fastening ACQ-treated lumber.
- Coarse-Thread screws are recommended for use with softwoods like cedar, pine etc. — as well as for sheet goods such as plywood and MDF — that are soft and not very dense. Coarse screws have deep, aggressive threads that bite into those soft fibers to ensure solid holding power.
