Default Waffle Screw

I took a screw from a drawer to Home Depot. They didn't
have any, but told me it was called a waffle screw.

Where can I get some?

I'll guess it was really a wafer screw. You could try any other
hardware store or a real bolt store.

Just stick a standard screw in a waffle iron


i was thinking of something very different involving a waffle iron,

When I have needed them, I have also found them called "modified truss
head" screws.
