Broken Screws

What is so remarkable about two broken screws? Not much, but it’s how they were broken that’s amazing.

I was installing a new door lock for our kitchen door. I was surprised at how hard the wood was. The door is made of Pterocarpus indicus, commonly known in the Philippines as Narra.

I was manually drilling down the wood using a philips head scredriver and putting in the screws when the screw gave in! The metal screw broke. The Narra wood is actually harder than these screws. Damn.

High Res

These are the heads of the screws. The rest is stil in our door and I have no idea how to get them out.
