    Hi,

    Which type of screw and size should i go for to join the joists?-i don't want to nail .after doing some relentless searching i found one or two use the above screw but can't find a stockist.i'm wondering which type you guys use and where to buy in bulk?

    many thanks.

    Yes those are perfect, and brilliant when used with an impact driver. No drilling, no cam-out or broken pozi bits

    Or just get the coach screws
