How to use drywall screws?

1. The head should be round (this is also the common standard of all round head screws). Because of production process problems, the head of drywall nails produced by many manufacturers may not be very round, and some may even be slightly square. The problem is that it doesn’t fit perfectly into the drywall, concentric circles, around a central point, which should make sense.

2. Have a sharp point, especially if you’re working with light steel keels. The sharp Angle of the dry wall nail is generally required to be between 22 and 26 degrees, and the sharp Angle of the head is required to be full, without dragging wire and cracking phenomenon. This “point” is the most important for drywall nails, because they are used without pre-made holes and are screwed in, so the point also allows for penetration. Especially when used in light steel keel, bad tip will lead to not drill in, directly affect the use of. According to the national standard, wallboard nails should be able to drill through 6mm iron plate in 1 second.
3. Don’t be eccentric. The easiest way to determine if a drywall nail is eccentric is to place it on a table, round head down, and see if the thread is vertical and in the middle of the head. If the screws are eccentric, the problem is that power tools wobble when they’re screwed in,wobble. Shorter screws are fine, but longer ones can be a big problem.
4. The cross slot should be located in the center of the round head, otherwise the situation is the same as that of 3.
