    Which / Do any of the DIY sheds / local builders merchants sell
    stainless steel screws ?
    I need some for prototyping and need to look at them etc. Various
    lengths around 20mm etc.
    Screws will be embedded in cement thus stainless. I can use some
    aquapanel screws I have but they are too long for some areas.
    Cheers,
    Simon.

  2. Places that sell bits for boats will have them - probably expensive but often in small packs so
    handy if you only need a few

    I have a pack that I bought from B&Q, same range as Screwfix, but only in
    the very largest B&Q outlets.

    What ?
    But I presume I am preventing rust, which needs oxygen, so either way I
    am safe.
    Any probs with stainless in cement ? if so makes a nonsense of
    stainless EML instead of galv, etc.
    Explanation ?
    Simon.

    It's not a Shed but Components Direct have a very good range of both

    screws.

    Very good value too (IIRC £50 incl. VAT for free delivery)
