    Hi. I am building some raised beds using pressure treated 100mm deep sleepers. I am looking for 150mm screws to secure each row of sleepers into the row below, but want a countersunk screw so the head does not foul the next row which will go on top.

    Was looking at 150mm countersunk goldscrews. I know they're not really outdoor rated, but does this really matter? If they rust will it really be a problem? Stainless steel are so £££!

    Thank you

    You could counter bore with a flat wood bit if needed.

    Thanks both, counter boring seems like a sensible option

    According to this video, you Goldscrews should be fine:

    A spot of Vaseline on the screw will help with protection and ease screwing (Ooo Matron!).;)

    The OP was asking about corrosion. That video addresses the issue. I have observed similar corrosion resistance myself in my garden with Goldscrews.
