    Wurth. Bit better quality and as I don't go through thousands of them I am not watching the price too closely.

    I only buy Reisser now, Screwfix and Tool Station sell them.

    Reisser stainless are really nice but obviously a bit more expensive, sadly niether of the above stock them

    From my personal experience Wurth and not watching the prices can be a costly mistake, prices have been all over the place as its all top prices then varying discounts.
    The need to get a quote for each item has put me off, shame would be good to have a supplier you could trust to sort you out a good deal on everything ordered.

    I made the mistake of buying "silver screw" or somthing from Toolstation or Screwfix once, thinking it was just a "Goldscrew" variety.

    Turns out it's just a rubbish knock off, that my impact driver turns to mush on every screw. Gold screw I have no issues with.

    I never use anything less than the gold screws

    Might have to pop in there myself when passing, I have heard about them. But never used them!

    Often wondered if those two companies are related or did TS evolve from SF .

    I only ever buy stardrive now, cost more, but you don’t have to push the screw hard, to stop it chewing the head up,

    Buy them from toolstation
