I did something awful yesterday, and I put a screw on too tight. I wasn't looking at the top of the deck (ergh). My friend was holding my board, and I thought he was watching the top side. My mistake for not paying attention :( it's not bad, but I'm still upset. I'm trying to get over it. Ugh. Anyway, I'm going to put a flat washer under the head of the screw, and I was wondering if you guys think I should switch to panhead screws? My board is a top mount. Or should I just leave this alone?
If it holds your board together, good. Your boards bound to get dented.
It's absolutely fine buddy honestly. Decks are made of wood at the end of the day your guna get dinks n scratches and everyone one of them will remind you of a funny story of how it got there :) just ride it dude
Bit of a tip tho. If you back the screw out a little but still tight enough to do it's job the wood under the screw will bounce back n rectify itself. Ply wood has memory
Thanks guys! I felt really crappy about it!
