    Just goofin' on pedantry. Original pic looked like a Frearson aka Reed & Prince. Update's probably a Phillips.

    You claim that this is a flathead screw [sic], yet the manufacturer says it's a bugle-head screw:

    Looking at above head chart- what's with the Phillps ll head? It has teeth!
    Anybody ever use/see these?

    ( I'm not 'handy' at all, just curious- fun thread)

    No, the screw is slotted (negative space). The driver is flat (positive space).

    Eating popcorn and reading along. This might go down as the whiniest post with the least information ever.

    Hi.

    Yeah, here in Japan they say 'plus drive' and 'minus drive.'

    As an aside, about a thousand years ago, when I worked as a linesman (lines person these days I guess), we used what were called posidrive screws and drivers. But, after reading that article, I think they may have actually been the JIS standard.
