QuickScrews International Corp. offers two pocket hole screws that work well with extremely hard woods, such as hickory and hard maple. Quickcutter's pocket hole screw has an extra cut on the thread that helps relieve the stress pushing out that typically causes splits. The XL pocket hole screw features an extra long Type-17 cut on the thread plus a deep coarse thread for less chance of spin out.
