    I keep 2 versions of threads on hand for pocket screws Chuck, fine thread for hardwoods and coarse thread for ply. I have never used pocket screws on MDF but would use coarse thread on them

    Ditto to what Tom said. I've used coarse in MDF - works good.

    I use fine screws for everything pocket screws. Mostly because I'm too lazy to order anything else, but rarely do I find I need a more aggressive screw, and when I do, I just grab a regular wood screw and throw it in there. I use Deerborn screws I think.

    Another McFeely's coarse and fine user here, I use the coarse washer head on MDF with good success.
