So, Ed....

Now that you found them - do you have any specific purpose for them?

I was thinking, we always used 8x3/4 for mounting 89b's 8x1.5 for wall phones and 10x1 for most other things.

What's so special about these?

Well Ed your right,  they are great screws. 

I have gotten the odd few of those screws on uninstalls and what not,  but never really used them exclusively on a job.   
I hate bugle head screws aka drywall screws because they don’t lay flat on the back and there is really little to no use for them in our profession,  ecpecially 66 blocks.  There are a few ty-wrap mounts I use them for bits that’s about it.

 I have been using lathe screws and they are great,  but being able to use any screw driver I have handy,  and a magnetized nut driver is a big plus. 

I did an office in an old house job and reaching up between dark, awkward joists to put up J-hooks was a breeze with the magnetic 1/4” driver  on the Milwaukee m12.

My box has been in the car for a few weeks and I didn’t really think to use them. Thanks for re-introducing me to them.
