I have broken off screw heads before, from over-torque-ing, and the screw breaks off where the shank meets the head, but I have never seen screws snap off with a c;lean hole in the middle of the head like this. I wanted to clarify, these were not Hillman screws. These were the screws that came with a set of hinges from ACE. I did solve the issue by waxing the threads before screwing them into the pilot holes, and that seemed to do the trick. I was just shocked to see these screws fail “where” they failed. I’d never seen a screw-head snap off and leave a clean hole right in the center like this. Thanks once again for all the imput! You guys rock!
