Pocket hole joinery is all about making strong joints that are fast and easy to produce with a hidden joint. They are produced using a jig and drilling a hole at an angle into one workpiece. This is then joined to a second workpiece with a hardened steel self-tapping screw.
SPEED – eliminates the need to pre-drill the mating workpiece.
STRENGTH – screw acts as an internal clamp and is stronger than a biscuit, dowel or tenon.
GRIP – constant clamping force combined with today’s glue technology makes for an incredibly strong wood-to-wood bond.
Material: Zinc plated steel screws made to DIN 1.1133
Thread Type: The fine thread screw suits hardwood such as oak, maple, walnut and cherry.
Head Style: All UJK screws use Torx T20, chosen to provide the best grip possible. Washer Head style provides the largest amount of surface area to seat firmly in the bottom of the pocket, especially for plywood or pine and ensures that the screw is not overdriven.
Material thickness: Use 25mm screws to join 13mm to 19mm thick timber, 32mm screws to join 19mm, 38mm screws to join 22mm to 32mm, 50mm for 32mm to 35mm timber and 62mm long screws to join 38mm thick workpieces. Suitable for use with pocket hole jigs including Kreg®.N.B. Please remember to always use a drill driver with fitted with a clutch, using the lowest clutch setting required to do the job

Not as grippy as KregBought these in various sizes as my supply of Kreg screws was running low. The Torx head is a lot better that the square one on Kreg, but I find it is very easy to tear out the hole, you have to be very careful with the torque setting on the driver. There seems to be a very fine line between the screw not going fully home, and just tearing out. Found this on various hardwoods, and never had the problem with the Kreg screws. Will probably go back to Kreg next time if I can find a mail order or local supplier.
