    Spax and Wurth I find the best, German efficiency and all that, but they carry the price tag too.

    Is no one going to show some love for the torx head?

    Our hosts have two cases in their "Price crash" event - I wish there was a yawning smiley for another disappointing promotion

    Rather poor price crash event.[​IMG]

    But, I did get one small bargain, but I'm not say what until I've collected it tomorrow.[​IMG]
    It saved me a tenner.:)

    A bit off topic, I have several boxes of screws in different sizes (No. 8 & 10, 1" to 2" long mainly), is there a good cheap empty case I could buy to put them in? Like the product that chippie linked to, but without the screws!

    Thanks KIAB, although at about £25 its rather overkill, the case costs more than the screws in it and I'm just a simple DIYer ;-)

    I have a builder's bucket here full of assorted woodscrews that I brushed up ten years ago,after I dropped a plastic case, can't be bother spending hours sorting them.:D

    KIAB is right, the metal ones are the best, all my screws are kept in them, they last longer and are much more robust.

    I have a few of these full of plumbing fittings:

    They take a good bit to crack them too, i have dropped them all over the place and they never seem to crack. although a decent drop or flight of stairs might do it.
    They also have the second clips which helps keeps the lids shut.

    For a diyer and light use (like me, i only do plumbing jobs a few times a month) i think these ones are perfect.

    Same problem here, except they are brushed into a corner of the garage floor!:rolleyes:

    I have about 4 metal cases full of screws, when full they get really heavy to lug about The additional problem is quite often for a job you only need a few sizes.

    My holy grail is to find a system of those little plastic boxes that you store in the workshop and then just take the ones you need out with you. I know I could buy lots of cases and keep them in the workshop and just use one as a portable case but few cases can take long screws or bolts alongside the smaller ones.

    I tried making some up out of 6mm MDF but it was such a pain.

    May be all I need to do is organise my various boxes of screws so they're all in one place and easily accessible, I may already have a case and so can put the boxes in the case...job done.

    Look on Youtube or Pintrest for ideas.
