Since you use a Brummy screwdriver they ought to be called Brummy screws :)

Drive Rivets, had a helical 'thread' and domed top.

I seem to recall seeing them someplace in the last year or so, probably at an ex-govt dealers?

I bought an assortment of these in different sizes (including 1/8") from J A Crew a little while ago. Very cheap. I don't know if they will sell just one size though.

Many thanks for the information both on list and by email. On the off chance I rang the local hardware suppliers just round the corner, didn't hold much hope out as they never have simple fast moving things in stock [ 1 1/2" x 8 wood screws?, Sorry Sir we are out of stock !!

-- 4" nails ? waiting for them to come in. ]

But believe it or not they had these in !!!! They called them hammer rivets got 100 off No 6 x 1/4"

How many times do I have to tell you people? It mist be the fifth time this week... We don't stock those items because there's no demand for them.
