There are so many wood screw types available and such a range of often high prices, I wonder if any one has found a good source of reliable and reasonably priced screws - excluding B&Q which I'm sure is not one of them.

Reisser and Spax are decent brands.

The Turbo Gold or Turbo Ultra(stainless version) are defo my favorites, cheeper than the spax and in my view better.

And it also attracts dirt, which jams the cylinder up, good call.

Hmmm what on earth has this to do with the price of screws?

Better still, put some superglue into the locks. That prevents bumping picking, even unlocking with the correct key. icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif
