At the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab, the Ancient Oven Ancient Oven can use them to forge Ancient Set and other ancient weaponry. Additionally, like Monster Parts, Link can use them to create Elixirs by Cooking them with small Animals. Three Ancient Screws are needed to upgrade the Sheikah Sensor at the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab, either during or after the "Slated for Upgrades" Side Quest.
