Be cautious when buying SPAX screws from HD. Some of the screws are "construction" grade and are useless for woodworking. They do not have the strength of the cabinet screws and the square drive will spin out. Nothing like my cabinet grade bought from my woodworking store.

Are you referring to the strength required to hang a cabinet on a wall?
No. The original woodworking Spax can be run in & out of hardwood multiple times without breakage which is handy in certain situations. Seeing their rep do this in a demo is what sold me on the screws. The square drive won't wash out on these. The ones I bought from HD were marked construction screws and the square drive would wash out when driving in common pine studs being used for bracing wall sections. Just saying be aware there are more than one variety of the screws.
