    Allen head or star are my favorites. I hate fucking phillips-head with a passion. Flathead are somewhere in between

    Robertson/square heads are mine. I've seen too many stripped phillips screw heads for my taste. Flatheads are the worst though

    I seriously think the same thing every single time I come across one. It’s stupid.

    I’ve slipped off them and cut my hand more than once. Never on a Phillips or star or square. They’re barbaric.

    I think someone is confusing a slotted screw with a flathead.

    That a Yankee drill?, In a bind it works well enough.
    Rusted old slotted screws are the best.

    You can get a countersunk Phillips to do same thing.

    Fuck'em.
