• Got a real simple question, when you screw some thin ribs to the bottom of a board do you need to drill little starter holes for the wood screws or are they self tapping? If so what size drill bit do you use??

    Thanks
  • no starter holes needed. use a power drill with a phillips head attachment on a very low setting to get it started. but DO NOT tighten all the way down with power drill using phillips attatchemnt, you WILL break the screw off inside the deck!!.. ive done it more than once. it sucks. screw it in the rest of the way by hand.
