    Hi to All,

    This is for a shed project, will be using 3X2" timber. So far the ones i have short listed are the Goldscrew Plus or Forgefast Multi Purpose Woodscrews.

    Have also looked at the Reisser Cutters and the Screw-tite 2's. Any feedback or recommendations will be much appreciated.

    My preference - Reisser Cutter.

  3. 4" galvanised wire nails, no need for screws.

    Are you using the regular ones or the elite?

    You're right to be using screws - I would go for the cheapest with a good pozi bit. Reisser screws are an absolute joy, but you're going to need quite a few and are an unnecessary expense for a shed - even a beautiful one!

    It's a shed mate, as Deleted member 11267 has stated, use 4" galvanised wire nails to build the framework and roof, and use 2- 2 1/2" galvanised wire nails for any sheathing material. Save your money on screws and build up your dexterity using a hammer.

    I think just the regular?

    I honestly wouldn't over think it , as many have said you could get away with using nails , and in many ways nails may be better.

    Went with the regular ones in the end. Correct! "Don't over think it".
