Still a bit shocked at having spotted Channellock tools at Walmart, a new surprised has rocked me world. Home Depot now carries Spax screws, and at reasonable prices!
After finding nothing but easily-sheared way-overpriced fasteners at home improvement stores, I started buying my wood screws online a while back. One of my favorite screws has been Spax, since they (usually) requite no pilot-hole and hold up quite well.
If you haven’t tried ’em out yet, you should definitely consider it. And since they’re now available at Home Depot at online-prices, I’m a pretty happy camper.
Spax screws, at least all the ones I found, are Made in the USA or Germany.
