As a beginner, I'm having a hard time deciding what screws to stock up on.


There are the Washer Head and than Pan Head.


Than you have #6 and up.


At any time, I could be working with plywood or 10/4 Walnut.


I understand the fine thread/coarse thread and the screw length but what size is my biggest question at this time such as the #6,8,10 etc.


Any and all help will be GREATLY APPRECIATED! :)

I understand the number to mean the shank size but even knowing that, when is it correct to use a #6 vs. #10 etc.??

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…
