I received an email ad from fine home building  titled holiday joy, start making handmade gifts.  The email shows socket head screws, what is the trade name for this type of screw and where can I find them.  Thanks

Don't know the name of them, (post #206990, reply #1 of 6)

Don't know the name of them, but those are the special screws used for assembling hardboard furniture.  I believe Rockler may carry them.

Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed.  --Herman Melville

Those are called Confirmat screws used for MDF. Don't know what the drive shown is but they do come in Posidrive and Torx. You need a stepped bit to drill the pilots. Fastenal or Mcfeeleys have them.
