Trying to adjust my bulkheads, 1 5/8 steel stud along with L Angles, and track to do the framing, however I am having issues with some of the wafer screws staying snug now, some are coming loose? I got a huge box of them from when i ordered the framing.
I have a feeling you have over tightened them. You need to be careful when snugging them up or they will strip and loosen off. Pull them out and drive in again next to the location they were in.
I agree, over tightened or redone too many times which has worn out the hole.
Or leave them in and drive another next to it. If you pull the first one the bulkhead can move out of position, so just add another fastener. If you can't have two fasteners in the same place at the same time, then put a temp support under the bulkhead while you swap out the screws.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
If the studs were light weight like 25 guage and self drilling screws were used the screws will strip out not enough metal left for the threads to grab.
Ya good point if they sold you self drillers then that could be the issue as well.
