About this deal

This traditional unhardened woodscrew has a single thread, and needs a pilot hole and shank-clearance hole to be drilled before it's fitted. For use with cable clip pins or other small nails, masonry or otherwise (the plug comes with a ready hole for the nail, pin or possibly even a small diameter screw). Screws are usually made of mild steel, but hardened steel, stainless steel, solid brass and steel plated with chromium or brass are also available, as are galvanised rust-proof screws for outdoor use. Anatomy of a screw

Has a square or hexagonal head that's driven in with a spanner. Gives a very strong, heavy-duty fixing. Countersunk woodscrew A screw has a head, a shank and a thread. Its length is measured from the pointed tip of the thread to the part of the head lying flush with the surface it's screwed into. The gauge is the diameter of the shank. Raised-head screws have heads that sit above the surface, countersunk screws have heads that are flush with or sink below the surface. Screws can have slotted or crossed heads - cross-headed screws being easier to drive in than slot-headed ones, especially with a power screwdriver. Screw gauges

Has a rectangular cross-section and is used to fix floorboards to joists. Felt nail/large-head clout nail Nail plugs and plugs for screws are crucial elements used in woodworking and construction projects. Nail plugs, made of materials like wood or similar substances, cover nail holes in wooden surfaces, giving them a polished and finished look. These plugs are inserted into the holes and then sanded or trimmed to be flush with the surface, resulting in a smooth finish. Plugs for screws, available in different materials such as wood or metal, are used to conceal the heads of screws. They hide the exposed screw heads and provide additional protection against moisture and debris. Both nail plugs and plugs for screws play a vital role in achieving a professional and aesthetically pleasing outcome in woodworking and construction. A deep thread extends right up to the head, making it good for wood as well as chipboard. Coach bolt (cup square bolt)

Round nail with rings around its shank to make the fixing more secure. Use for tasks such as laying sub-floors and pinning exterior trim where the nail is unlikely to ever need to be removed. The shape of the countersunk head prevents the screw being removed once it's in place. Self-tapping screwAfter trying unsuccessfully to nail cable clips to a really hard layer of mortar and ending up with bent nails. I wondered if there was such a thing as rawl plugs for cables clips…. There are and these are them! These work perfectly. Drill the hole, insert cable clip nail plugs and hammer cable clip into place. Job done. So easy”. Steel nails come in all shapes and sizes. Outdoors, always use zinc-plated galvanised nails - they help to delay rusting. Clout nail Small, slim nail that's easily punched in and used for attaching, mouldings, joinery and general carpentry. The imperial system of screw gauges ranked shank diameter as a number from 1 to 20 - the higher the gauge, the bigger the screw. The metric equivalents are not nearly so user-friendly, but this is how screws are now increasingly sold. Use this handy table as a guide: Gauge
