Hi guys. Another review today of the Beaverscrews that I've been sent by Tool Talk to show you guys today. So I've had these screws for at least a month now. It's given me plenty of time to give my opinion on them and what I think of them. And to be honest with you, I've been quite impressed in comparison to the screws that I typically use, which are just the gold screws that we get from Screwfix. They're far better quality, far better design. And to be honest, I probably wouldn't go back to the screws that I used to use.
Screws and fixings are sort of something that people look over. Some people are quite strict on what ones they use, maybe it's because of cost, maybe they've just used them for the years and years since they've trained up and it's just sort of a habit thing. And also it's quite hard for new guys to break into fixings that people use all the time. But I said I've used gold screws typically, but over the past month I've only tried to use these new Beaverscrews that I've been sent out.
So what do I think of them? I think that they are really well built. They're really strong. I haven't managed to snap any yet. I've used them for what they should be used, what they shouldn't be used, what they could be used for. And ultimately they've been great. The main thing that I've noticed from the sort of work that I do is that on this screw, it's got a spear head that you can see there where there actually isn't any thread on the screw. And that allows the screw to sort of penetrate a lot quicker and is quite sharp.
So normally I'd be fixing unistrap or channel to a bit of ceiling, some joints, some wood, and often I'd have my hands above my head with washer and one hand, holding the bit of channel with the other, whilst juggling an impact gun to actually get it in. And what I noticed is that a lot of the times you try to get it in and your screw just wouldn't sit in the flush or you wouldn't be able to get it in quick enough without dropping everything. So these screws bite in really fast. Really fast. So the gold screws would take quite a while. You'd have to spin them quite a bit quite well, and before that actually sink in, whereas the beaver screws due to that little spear that I was talking about, they bite in straight away. And once they have bit in, you've got the midsection that is double, counter sunk, and milled. So that will allow the screw to going a lot easier, as opposed to just the thread, which is following it's ... Sort of winding its way and digging in a lot better. And obviously the double counter sink head will allow you to actually in deeper.
So for you guys that are working with finish products that obviously you're going to cover over offer, and it's quite important that you sync your heads, these go really nicely. But equally, if you don't get it right, they come out really well as well. So I'll show you the different tests that sort of prove that. But a big thing that I noticed is that when you're taking these screws out, they do come out a lot easier. Say for instance, when you see me sink these two, this is the gold screw and this is the Beaverscrew, you'll notice that when I take this gold screw out, it leaves a big mess after you've sunk it all the way in. Say for example we didn't get that quite right and you need to take it out, you're left with a pretty nasty finish. Whereas the Beaverscrews, they're spot on.
So what I'll do is I'll show you, go and alternate in between each type of screw, and you can sort of listen to the impact and it will tell you how hard they're having to work. So this is just a gold screw. I'll go quite quickly. And then this is a Beaver screw. So there's not much in it. Don't get me wrong. But if I were to show you this bit of wood, this one is slightly cracked. Whereas this one is completely nice and flush, the Beaver screw. And it's left a nice little circle, whereas this one's left a bit of an indent. It hasn't gone in as nicely because it lacks them features such as being milled and having that double counter sunk head.
So I'll show you again. So this is a gold screw. Bit of slip there. But I think you can tell that obviously these gold screws, they take a little bit longer to go in. And I'll show you later on as well. So there we go, Three, two, one. Three, two, one. So as you can see, in my opinion, and if I actually show you, you can see these are the Beaver screws and these are the gold screws. You can see the difference on the woods.
So I've said for you guys that are doing finishing work where you have to put screws in or whatever, it's going to leave far less the mess compared to the other ones. And so what I do is this is the Beaver one, this is the gold screw. I'll bring them both down and bring them back up again and I'll show you what sort of mess it leaves. So this is gold one. Beaverscrew. So as you can see, the one you're looking at on the left is the Beaverscrew, and the one on the right is the gold screw. And you can see the difference.
So definitely worth trying to try these screws out, because ... A screw's a screw. It's going to go no matter what, but if it makes your life easier, then it's worth having. So what I'll do is let me take out these screws now. And I'll do putting them in, and I'll just show you how much better that these ... This is a Beaverscrew. How much better it bites. It's almost no spinning around. This is a gold screw. So don't get me wrong. There's not much in it, but all these extra little designs do make a difference. And it's almost as if they're for different people. So like I said, different sort of trades are going to notice the different designs and how that helps them. So in my opinion, I won't be going back to gold screws. I'm going to be telling my bosses to try and go for these beavers screws because they do make a difference to your work. And ultimately that's the most important thing at the end of the day.
So yeah. Thanks Tool Talk. Thanks for sending these out to me. Hope you guys enjoyed the review. Cheers.
