Subject:
has anyone bought brass screws lately

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
I went to install some hinges today and found the brass screws I bought a few years ago are of poor quality. I think I got them from LeeValley, but not sure. They were in a plastic bag and I think made in CA. The arias is blunt and the threads crude. So, I need to get some different #7 x 3/4" screws. Why #7? The hinge has a screwy sized hole. A #8 sits proud of leaf and a #6 is buried.

Screws I got from White Chapel a few years ago are of good quality but I don't know if they still sell the same quality screws.
