Steel stud tip - use washers for blocking and new work brackets


I read up on blocking, new work brackets, and steel studs, but nothing about the need for washers. I needed washers for the studs I bought at Home Depot, made by Super Stud Building Products. Without washers for the blocking screws, the studs would warp and the brackets wouldn't be straight. Without washers for the bracket screws, the studs and bracket tabs would warp and the bracket wouldn't be straight.
