Rated 5 out of 5Â by 1JON Great screws for the lazy man
I've used these for butt-jointed oak flooring and for built-in oak furniture, with very good effect. The hole they leave is discrete enough to be perfectly acceptable in my old cottage.
It's saved me a lot of work, i.e. I haven't needed to bother making proper joints: I'm not a carpenter.
No pilot needed in oak (but advisable of course if you want later to remove them).
Very easy to use, especially with a new star bit (provided).

The screws are made to invisibly fix floorboards by screwing above the tongue. Some reviews suggested drilling a pilot hole, but I found that a few taps with a hammer to get them started was adequate. Either method would be suggested as the depth of the star bit hole is quite shallow and does not support the screw enough to drive straight in. Easily installed and no splitting.
Only recently fixed the boards and they appear to be in place for the long term

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GordonZ These are good
Laying Solid Oak flooring, came across these in a post somewhere and did a bit of research, It was these or hire a nailer, as a 1st time attempt at flooring I decided these would be a better/safer option as I could take as long as I wanted and have security to undo anything. I would recommend, 2 drills, 1 for pilot holes (which I think are definitely needed) and one for the screw bit. I did have to take up a few boards due to unseen flaws and with these it is so easy. Takes a fair bit longer but never rush a good job. No creaks, feels absolutely solid, even put an underlay for noise transfer. You will use more per Sq Metre than expected. They aren't cheapest option but worth the little extra and comparing against hiring a nailer then I'm actually saving. Thumbs up from me and my floor looks and feels awesome

Rated 4 out of 5Â by flyingfarmer Great little screws.
We love them, great for attaching lots of different woods with little sign of screw. Give them a try and find out how good for yourself.
