Full blocking. We always used i-joists. Setup a table saw and start cutting. Makes them nice and square. We fill the back up with foam before installing them so there isn't a void and potential cold spot.

12" chopsaw works for us most times. In our case that area was insulated with loose or batt.

That makes sense then..Pam doesn't make a square bit..they want you using their subfloor screws...and they are better than the Senco or generic squares we used to use.

Personal preference but I don't like fiberglass batt in the box. Nuwool isn't bad. We still have ours sprayed foamed even with the Dow we installed.

They did make one in the past. 140mm #2 square. Shows as out of stock most places but I bet a few local lumberyards may have some deadstock. I’ll check around next week. If I find some I’ll send one your way in case you need to use another brand in a pinch.

The PAM screws are awesome and work way better, but sometimes you need a backup option.

Yeah I definitely wouldn't mind a backup solution. The Pam screws aren't stocked locally. I can get them Tuesday or Friday from my yard but you know there will be a time I am out and need something to finish a job.

I will do a video this weekend of the Pam with our Dewalt gun in action. Framing an addition on my house this weekend.

Had a Quickdrive before our Senco. Maybe they made it better now but at the time the Senco blew it out of the water.

Haven't used it in years. This was back before hidden fasteners really took off.

It's an oddball size. Metric I believe.

For you guys looking for a square drive for the pam drive...

I bought a 6" milwaukee bit, cut it to 5 1/2" and then ground a new relief in it for the bit holder to grab. It works fine.

Sounds like a lot of work,, I'm glad I use a SuperDrive and can get the bits locally at Grabber Hawaii or now called J&M materials.
My SuperDrive takes a 6" bit.
For the mass work of collated screws we always use the Wagner bits.. maybe called lox bits now?? There is no better bit.
