What are self-drilling screws?
From domestic use through to large industrial projects, carpenters require tools that will aid their speed and efficiency. However, too many tools can also prove to be a problem; swapping over drill bits or drive tools can become a fiddly task that slows progress and adds costly additional time to projects. Carpenters Mate precision-engineered self-drilling screws come with their own correct drive tool, ensuring you’ll never have to waste time searching for, and swapping drill bits. When time is of the essence let Carpenters Mate self-drilling screws and accompanying drive tool help you complete the job with more efficiency and less fuss.
