Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing! These things are awesome! I used them to fix 12mm plywood onto a steel box sectioned frame and they blasted straight in, no problems! They cut nicely, make the hole in the wood slightly bigger than in the steel, so they don’t jack the wood off the frame and then countersink themselves perfectly! 10/10!

Does anyone know the maximum thickness of steel these will go though? I need to screw 4x2 to 100x100 SHS and I am guessing its anywhere from 4-6mm thick. Thanks in advance Kind regards, Tommy

Length of the screws

I know these are advertised as 40mm but is this overall or after the drilling tip snaps off? Thinking of using these to batten the roof of my van.
Asked by: Warby
Hello Warby The 40mm is the overall length of the screw including the drilling tip.
