-> I assume everyone knows what casting flash is... these screws
-> have casting flash...

Look closely. It is not casting flash. Screws aren't cast.
As mentioned in an earlier post, the heads and threads are
made by pressing (deformation) of a rod.

When the form dies wear, are improperly secured, or are misaligned,
the result is "extruded squish", not "casting flash".
