" Great product from TIMco, went in like a dream despite the wood being very hard and not pre-drilling. Far better than the Turbo Gold and Spax "

" I should have drilled a pilot hole but I was in a rush and did not have the correct drill bit. However, this screw was fantastic, the star drive worked really well and they screwed in with minimum fuss. I would definitely use them again. "

A good Turbogold alternative
13 Aug 2012
By AlmostFinished
, Gloucestershire
" I normally use Turbo Gold screws but bought these for the size and availability.
I have to say that I am very impressed, and would probably rate them slightly above the Turbo's.
Have used them with an impact driver to go through pine into beech block without pre-drilling: no problem whatsoever! I did the same with a Turbo and the head sheared off...
Good head on them, and so far good performance! "

" Very good cutting screw. Doesn't split the wood even at the very edge.
Screws easily into MDF, Chipboard and hardwood.
Very happy with these. Will buy again.

Good Quality - Easy driven
4 Apr 2012
By 636Syd
, Perth
" These looked a bit flimbsy . . . THERE NOT
These drive in with the greatest of ease . . . saying that . . one or two did need a bit of a heavy push to drive into knots in the decking framework that I was assembling. Before you say it . . . yes I know pilot holes would have helped, but pilot holes really were not required.

top screw

By myfriendgraham

" i use loads of the turbo gold screws but these were a particular size that were perfect to the mm for what i needed. and they were cheaper so i tried them.... and the're better! the turbo gold ones can every now and again sheer as they're so hard. no such breakages with these and if use as many as i do the small saving all adds up!

Slow paced screws
26 Jan 2013
By Flatpackwizard
, Norwich
" I was not impressed with the Velocity screws. The spec gave a good read but they are slow to cut into melamine faced chipboards that you generally find on kitchen cabinets and doors.
Take too long to 'bite'
I will stick to my Fischer or Spax screws in future.
Nice case though.

not that special

By hazza1959

" Not impressed with this screw. The trouble with this screw was that whilst it went it fine, it was a devil to get it out with out it camming out, even with a brand new quality bit.
For me the Screw Tite range is a better bet and I would gladly pay the extra for the better performance "
