    We tried once but, we actually did enter the 20th century and made a metric shit ton of slotted screws for everything we export, and everything we keep here is either phillips or Robertson. Can't even find slotted screw drivers anymore. I saw one young kid using a slotted screw driver as a pry bar, poor little bastard didn't know it was an antique screw driver

    Thank you very kindly, old chap, but I'm afraid I don't take the tobacco. You see, I lost a bit of lung in the Great War. Bloody Jerry.

    I have had a lot of good experiences with torx screws lately. Very hard to find Robertson screws in colours to blend in with the wood. This is in Maryland so your results may be different.

    just googled those. they look like they are nice to work with. I don’t think i have seen any of them, but i’m not around that stuff all that often.
