Help me find these screws online please

I don't have a camera right now, mine is broke, but I use these awesome screws where I work. My boss's call them torque screws. They are brass, and take a 6 point bit. The threads also appear to pull in the wood you are drilling into also. I don't know the name of them, but I can try to get the name on monday. Someone may know the names of these, or where to get them online though. The box of these my boss's get are like 16 dollars a box. That is why I'm wanting to find them online. Thanks for reading, and hopefully the help.

Well 6-point would be "hex head"
Are your sure they are not a yellowish zinc plated?
Brass is pretty soft, really soft actually

You are correct, it is probably a zinc plated screw. It isn't really a hex head, the type that would take a socket. It just takes a bit, like a phillips, except with 6 points instead of 4. Hope this helps.

Ozzfavors: From MY interpertation of your post; a) the boss calls 'em "torque screws" and b) you're using a "bit" and c) they have 6 points, so I'll suggest that they are TORX. I'll rule out hex head because you did not say you're using a socket.

I entered "torx head wood screws" into my search bar and found several on-line outlets with and hundreds and hundreds of types of torx head wood screws; from brass button head to flat head and in all types of coatings, colors, and threads. Quanities varied from 50 count bubble packs to 1000 piece boxes.

Sorry, "hex head drive"
Like a Phillips head screw, but the "recess"? instead of an "X", has a hexagon
You would use a hexagon shaped drive bit to tighten it
You're looking for:
Yellow zinc-plated hex head screws

Torx looks like an asterix, has six points
Also should come in yellow zinc plated
