"I had heard about Spax screws but never used them until I was asked to construct a built-in wardrobe when I thought I'd try them out. I drilled pilot holes as I would for other screws but believe that I didn't need to as these screws would drive straight through. I'll pick Spax screws in future."
"This is not the cheapest wood screw but it is well worth the extra cost - it drives fast and self drills without splitting materials even at the edge of MDF. This saves time and effort, once you try these you won't go back to the cheaper alternatives."
"These screws are easy to drive with a power drill without the need for a pilot hole. The heads do not snap off under pressure and the bits retain their grip on the head without rounding. I could not find any information on resistance to rusting so will have to wait and see how they perform outdoors."
"Does exactly what they should do, none failure of screw head even in the tightest corners. These bad boys are holding this oak floor in position. Screw head is small enough to hide below the t&g joints."
"Over the years & whilst constructing our extension I have found these to consistently be the best make of screws. Design means no need to pre-drill & rarely any splitting of the timber. They will also withstand multiple removals and re-use without any fear of the head being "chewed-up" by the screwdriver bit. Generally slightly more expensive than some other makes but well worth it in the long run!! I won't choose any others now!"
"Bought these to attach drawer runners to veneered MDF and they work a treat. Screw in easily and actually pull tight whereas normal wood screws don't seem to go tight in MDF, just keep going round. Would recommend based on this."
"Easy start reliable screws that can used for stud work and general construction with confidence no splitting and close to edge fixing, have used for all jobs where I need to trust a secure fix and offer reasonable resistance to breaking with side impact. I would highly recommend to all"
"I have tried many makes of screw,but there is no doubt in my mind that Spax make one of the best. They are passivated, strong and easy to use and most of all reliable. I suppose I am lucky to have a Screwfix depot nearby, but this does not defer from the fact that they too are reliable, fair and trustworthy . The prices are also very fair. Whilst they may not be quite as cheap as Ebay, you know what you are getting and no funny business, like getting lost in the post or trying for a refund which might never come. Thanks Screwfix.!!"
"I discovered SPAX screws about 2 years ago and it was an eye opener. You would think a screw is a screws is a screw but no. They immediately grip into wood and are easy to screw in leaving a flush finish. They're also plated so will last a while before starting to rust. Once I started using SPAX I didn't want to use anything else."
