I need to know what type of screws to use to attach some stucco netting with paper backing onto metal studs? On wood studs I would normally use a crown staple gun.

Yes, I read and answered the question the first time. Use self-drilling lathe heads to attach lathe to studs 20ga and heavier. Pointer style screws are used on 24 and 25 ga studs.

Now you need me to tell you what gauge studs you have? It may be written on them, or you could buy a $5 box of each, and keep them in your tool box.

You'll need a screw-gun with a phillips tip too.
