Wood Screw Holding Strength

Wood Screw Holding Strength

Wood Screw Holding Strength

I'm looking for data pertaining to #12 x 1-1/2"lg wood screws and the holding power, for a lack of a better term, when threaded into a wood (say teak), What is the load or force required to pull the fastener out or strip the hole. I understand there are many variables but if anyone can point me in a direction it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.

RE: Wood Screw Holding Strength

How about ISO9087: "Wood - Determination of Nail and Screw Holding Power Under Axial Load Application First Edition?"
Sounds like it might apply - anybody have that one? [I don't]

RE: Wood Screw Holding Strength

Try "Wood Handbook" from Forest Products Laboratory.
