Log and Timber Structures - We've Got Your Connection

Typically when log home/timber frame homes and structures are discussed most people automatically envision a woodsy setting featuring a lovely, rustic chinked log cabin, right? While we love these warm, traditional, country structures, we also thoroughly enjoy seeing timber used in contemporary architectural construction too.

Multiple Applications Means One Multi-Material Screw.

What? You haven't tried the SPAX® Multi-Material screws yet? Well we weren't kidding when we named them - these bad boys work like butter on wood, dry wall, masonry, sheet metal, and plastic my friend. And talk about a time and money saver - one screw, one drive style, no pre-drilling* and you're set to fire up that driver and get after it!

Long Haul Cabinet Install

Cabinet Installation Tips

We think we have a pretty darn good line of fastener products and one that has been getting a lot of traction lately with contractors and DIY'ers alike are our Cabinet Screws.

The large, low-profile head provides increased load bearing area, while the patented 4CUT™ Point prevents splitting without pre-drilling. The T-STAR Plus drive promotes superior bit engagement, especially for overhead work and the patented thread serrations minimize driving torque to prolong your power tool battery life. This complete superior package provides you with a screw you can depend on for your cabinet installation. (And it's great looking to boot!)

Need more proof? Check out Contractor Mark Clement from MyFixitupLife  as he walks you through his solid cabinet install and you'll see why SPAX is always by his side on his job sites.

Saving Time and Organizing Your World

Who doesn't want more organization in their life? Who doesn't wish they had more time?  Sounds like a dream, eh?  Well SPAX® can help...really!

One of the things we like to do for fall/winter readiness is organize or reorganize our garage. All the crap, uh I mean valuable stuff, we've accumulated over the spring and summer has taken over our precious space that previously had been designated for vehicles and our tools (if you're not lucky enough to have a shop).

Hang Time - Screwing Around With Drywall

A question we get asked A LOT is "Can I use SPAX® to hang drywall?".  That's a great question and we love that so many loyal SPAX® users want to use our products for everything under the sun!

While SPAX® fasteners are not designed for this specific use we do hear back from users (professional and DIY'ers alike) that they do use them for this applications and others not typically promoted by SPAX®.
