    I want a double head screw as shown in the middle further below
    What are these called? When I search on ebay, I don't find anyone selling these under 'double head screw'

    How do I fit these?
    I want to stack 3 tables - these are shown below the screw image - the tables are just from Ikea

    Thanks

    The middle one is called a curtain pole joining screw....pilot holes are drilled in the ends of each pole, and by hand, the two poles are turned together.

    But if you wish to stack and join those tables together,you will need to drill, dowel, and glue together, the screws will not work.

    Probably because they don't have any heads.

    Double ended ???
     
  8. Agreed. At a push you would only be able to fit one screw by turning the table round. Dowels a much better idea.

    Don't know about the legs, but Lack shelves are hollow, so so might the top of that table be.

    You may not be able to fix them together as you plan.
