    Aye. Happy with gold screws.
    Buy a multibox as needed and buy odd sizes individualy.

    Wurth might be another option.

    I think if I was going to buy in bulk, I'd be looking for star drive screws.

    Na. Can't stand em.

    Ok in a perfect world but when your banging in screws in tight spots a pozi iand driver is far more forgiving on angle.

    Mind you. If you can't use a drill properly they help stop people chewing up screwheads.

    Thankfully I'm not in that class

    I was assuming you were in the class of being able to drive a screw given your username. ;)

    Have to say I do like torx but you are absolutely right on the approach angle thing.

    Either pozi or torx, not bothered, but Phillips can do one these days.

    That's not actually what the alias refers to. More like "how should you hold the throttle on a motorcycle". :D
