    Personally I would like to see 1/2" to 1" in 1/8" increments then to 2" in 1/4" increments and to 6" in 1/2" increments in Stainless (fluted deck screws snap off waaaay too easily) and Silicon Bronze... all available in #2 or #3 Robertson (Square) drive. I would also like to see the option of self drilling screws and also panhead square drive. All at a decent price (boy...am I dreaming:rolleyes: ).

    I agree with Lewisboats and if you can quote a competitive price for pozidriv, philpis and Robertson, send me a mail with prices and after that I will contact you. In the past I sold about 100 mil fasteners with hihg specs a year, spread over BNLX, Germany and France.

    I can catch up anytime I like if I have a good supplier. USA is dying for export orders.
    Monel and SSt are mostly required,after that, for the classics, silicon bronze.
    Surprise me.

    example #10 x 1.5" $22.01 per 100, $157.25 per 1000,
    $129.00 per 1000/10m


    or Monel Yikes this stuff cost alot
    example #10 x 1" $42.95 per 100, $306.78 per 1000,

    nope you dont need to order a dozen boxes im tring to build stock so long as what you looking for is a reasonablely common screw ill probley make like 5000 even if im only selling 100 this what i can pass on a reaqsonable price its a big numbers game if take the cost of setup machine time and what not in to like 100 screws youd have to pay like 10bucks a screw but if i do like 5000 its more like 30cents or something anyway let me know what you want even small quantites if its feasable i will galdly make um for you then ill even have them in stock if you want more the next time :) thanks Luke

    I'll agree with Lewisboats. Robertson drive please, they're by far the best IMHO. This type of stuff is soooo hard to find, even at places like Brafasco that should have enough smarts to stock it....
