Just so, how much force can a screw hold?
A typical range for proof strength for steel is 50 to 100 kpsi (i.e., a screw with a 1 square inch cross-sectional area of steel can hold up to 50,000 to 100,000 pounds).
Furthermore, how much weight can an 8 32 screw hold? An 8-32 screw will probably be able to hold 250 lbs of tensile strength, but it has to have a shaft of threads to share the work, as Ray said.
Moreover, how much weight will a 2x4 hold?
Here you can operate by assumptions that there is no wind or it is not as strong. If there is no strong wind, a 2x4 measuring at least 8 feet can support at least 1,000 pounds vertically. Such calculations would hold if, for instance, the load is square.
What is a #10 screw?
The term 10-32 comes from Unified and American Screw Threads for Bolts, Nuts, and Machine Screws standards published by ANSI B1. 1-1974. The number “10” is simply a size designator with no numerical meaning. The number “32” refers to 32 threads per inch.
