Slotted screws - favourite source
« on: April 03, 2019, 08:34:07 PM »



What's a good source for slotted screws?  Seems the price has gone up a lot over the past few years. 


Thanks,

I gobble them up at flea markets- harder and harder to find though.

Try: Blacksmithbolt.com
They carry all sizes of slotted flat head steel wood screws and not zinc plated! (but do have plated, bronze, nickel)
