Ten orthopaedic surgeons and ten researchers inserted 60 cortical screws each into artificial bone, for three different screw diameters, with half of the screws inserted through plates and half through washers. This dataset contains the raw measured screw insertion values for both surgeons and researchers; it includes calculated tightness and stripping rates. Confidence values are reported for each screw insertion.
