Slotted Brass Wood Screws
Brass screws are suitable for use in areas protected from salt water. They must never be used in exposed or underwater positions. Ideal for securing items such as brass clocks and barometers within the cabin. Not suitable for fixing gunmetal or bronze.
Arthur Beale says:
Brass is relatively weak so it is best to drive home a stainless steel screw of the same size before using the brass screw. A little Lanoguard grease will help lubricate and protect the screw.
