FastenMaster TimberLok Self Countersinking Head Screws 6.3 x 150 Pk50
Railway Sleeper Joiners
I'd read lots of reviews about these screws & wanting to build raised beds from railway sleepers & needing to join them, so thought I had to give these a go, & I've got to say they were/are fantastic. I had solid oak softwood treated sleepers from Brazil that were extremely solid & heavy & I was very sceptical if these really would work, but work they did superbly. I did make a small guide hole with a drill, but used these 150 mm screws, to join 100mm sleepers onto other 100 mm sleepers & they screwed in using a drill (as instructed) very easily & has joined them together very strongly. I can't compare to anything else, but I can say with total honestly these are fantastic; well worth paying the money, a premium brilliant product.

I was dreading joining oak sleepers together thinking that this product would not work. How wrong I was. After drilling a pilot hole the screws went through the oak with no problem at all, securing them very easily just as the instructions described. Will certainly use this product again

Used these to join sleepers together on my garden, did drill down through the top layer (125mm) before fixing, also used them to fix railing plates as they had a matching black finish, easy to screw with a drill driver using the included tool. Far better than coach screws and I rebated the heads and finished off with wood plugs.
