Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Carefix Services10th February 2022
These screws are some of the best on the market I use a good few screws of all different sizes and makes these screws are especially useful if you need to use close to and edge it does not split the wood like normal screws well with a try you will not be disappointed.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Keith Dawson Property5th February 2022
These were sent from tool talk to review. Been using these for a little while and no major complaints.
These worked with my magnetic driver and drove In perfectly not The best Ive ever used but also not the most expensive either.
At a reasonable cost these are a good solid option for everyday use.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Get Home Improvements12th November 2021
I got these to test from Tool Talk and here is my non biased review
I have been using Beaver Screws for various wood installations and I have not had any issues with them
They are coated to make them slide into the wood easier and it does
I was using them for making gates and installing floorboards
For the gates i has no issues and they stuck to my magnetic bit well
They did not jump when screwing them in and went in with no issues
When using them on the floorboards I did have to drill a pilot hole as I was close to the edge but again went in with no issues
On chipboard no problem and it just needed a little force to start them off and they did not jump about like other screws
They are good but not as good as SPAX screws but SPAX are premium screws but for day to day use,
Beaver screws are good and I would buy them
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Apex E C24th July 2021
These screws have some really great features not found on other screws. I've used them to fit floor boards back down and they don't break the heads off or split the boards. They are a great screw for finishes too as they countersink very nicely into many types of wood.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by JMH Installations24th June 2021
As a kitchen installer most of my time is spent screwing into MFC, I normally use Reisser cutters to save on drilling pilot holes. The beaver wood bit into the laminate just as well as the Reissers, the beaver woods countersunk flush better and cleaner than the Reissers. Think you might have a convert
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by 7 Electrical21st June 2021
Got sent a box to try and give my verdict and its fair to say they have certainly changed my opinion on screws I was always under the impression that a screw was a screw but these are different they have a great ability to key into the wood straight away giving you much more control when working at heights or angles where you cant use both hands would highly recommend
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Holmes Construction15th June 2021
Been using Beaver 4x40mm screws now for a week and I tried them in a few different scenarios, treated joists, mdf and chipboard. They have a sharp point which makes the easy to start and the 6 ridges under the head help them to self countersink which saves swapping bits or having a 2nd drill. When screwed into cabinet they produce less of a dimple to the material than conventional screw or drywall screw when driven below the surface without pre-drilling and being driven by impact driver. It would be interesting to see how the other available sizes perform on my day to day tasks.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Consider it Done Electrical Services15th June 2021
I have only been using these screws for a short time. But, found them educational! In as much as I had never thought screws could be so different. After all a screw is a screw, right? Well beaverscrews certainly turned that on its head. They are strong, they key or bite into the wood easily and they go in so easily. The wax coating can’t really be seen but would think this is what makes it go in with ease. The countersinking is achieved without effort thanks to the design and they cut in completely flush. Another important aspect I discovered is, when securing floor boards, they don’t split the wood as some others I used do. So overall, I’d have to recommend you try these, because they will sell themselves when you do.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by McGrath Heating Services Ltd15th June 2021
I’ve been using these screws for the last week had a lot of floorboards to refix down after pipework installation I must say was Impressed by the strength compared with my usual screws didn’t have any breakages Which can be a pain when the heads shear off didn’t take need to drill a pilot hole which saves time would use again the only thing I’d say that the box they came in wasn’t very strong but I transferred to my metal screw box good screws
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Lee Butterworth14th June 2021
I’ve been using these beaver screws (4mm x 40mm) 11/2”x 8’s over the last week or so mainly to screw plywood back to CLS stud work, got to say first impression are these are very good quality screws no need to pilot hole the ply first and pull into the sheet nice and flush.
I tried to give them a real test to see if they would snap non did!! I certainly will be ordering more and replacing the usual Reisser screws with beaver screws
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Regenesis Facilities Ltd t/a Hythe Heating14th June 2021
Really impressed with these screws. Wind in quickly with no rounding and no snapping under high torque. Pre sink themselves without splintering around hole. Will definitely keep using.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by PeterJ14th June 2021
I've used alot of screws and generally you just grab what ever you see on the shelf or what your local whole saler supplies.
I would happily go out my way to buy these screws, they have super sharp tips which means even in the most awkward angles it will bite straight away. I havent actually had one strip yet which is very surprising.
I would 100% recommend these screws to anyone wanting something reliable, affordable and easy to store.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by East & smith Air Conditioning14th June 2021
I’ve been using these for months now, I use to use gold screws from screwfix. They rounded easily and also took a while to bite into wood.
The beaver screws bite straight in which is very useful when working over your head.
I wouldn’t go back and considering the price it’s a no brainier.
Something as basic as decent screws can really save you time.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Vital Plumbers Ltd14th June 2021
Beaverscrews review Love these screws , they bite so much easier and have no issues with them countersinking, I would recommend the screws to anyone
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Handmade Creations Joinery13th June 2021
Got sent some 40mm screws and can’t say anything but good stuff about them, normally use goldscrews but these are far superior, great bite and grabbing power and no splitting near ends of boards, will certainly be using them again!
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by BP Clews Energy Services12th June 2021
Was sent these to try 4x40mm normally use reiser but on use I would say these were better. Tried them on osb easy to drive with no cam out on screwdriver bit, countersunk really well. Also tried on some cls timber some slight edge break out when too close to edge but so do the competition. I would definitely buy in the future.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by D A Childs Joinery11th June 2021
I was sent a tub of 4x40mm to test and they really are some of the best screws I have used. Consistant quality and the self countersinking ribs under the head help give a cleaner finish. I was using them to line a shed with 11mm OSB and within 1 full turn the screw had gripped and was on its way in. At tye top of the shank there are small ribs to help prevent jacking between 2 pieces of timber.
IMO just as good as the Reisser Cutters I normally use.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Richardson8th June 2021
We are always looking for things that save time and effort. These screws are excellent for screwing ply to timber, l’ve been using the 45mm screws to fix 18mm ply to CLS, they are very good, no pilot hole needed and they self countersink well. If all the screws l’ve used none have stripped the head.
Great time saver. They cost more than regular screws but the time they save easily pays for them
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Mcclements8th June 2021
These screws are excellent, the build quality is as good as the top named brands if not better, the point is sharp which gives a good start when driving into hard wood, the cut from the threads means no more pre drilling. The thread is full length which gives a great pull when joining and the nibs under the head work effectively for countersinking the head. I'd say you pay for what you get and these screws are well priced for their effectiveness.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Plumbing heating Drainage services21st May 2021
Having used many screws over the years I’ve just tried these new screws and have too say they are amazing to use and drive into the wood with ease no head rounding out and fast driving in speed I would definitely recommend these screws to anyone who’s looking at refilling these screw box
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Dockside Construction6th May 2021
Received a tub of these to test and first impressions are really positive. They seem to ‘eat’ through wood probably down to the wax coating and little edge that’s cut in to each screw. Also countersink very nicely and even come in a plastic tub which should be a little more durable than your usual box. They seem fairly priced so I’ll be looking to make these my go to screw moving forward. Overall very impressed.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by BD Plumbing & Heating6th May 2021
What can I say? I hadn’t heard of Beaverscrews until a couple of weeks back and wasn’t really expecting much (a screw’s a screw at the end of the day), but I tell you what, these are seriously impressive. They went into the wood really well with no splits, stayed in the drill bit no issue at all and genuinely saved me a bit of time compared to my normal screws. I’m gonna order some more and keep using these from now on - same price point as well which is a plus. Only negative, as some other’s have mentioned is the plastic box… feels like it could break a bit too easy. Would prefer a more heavy duty case than the one that’s given.
Other than that, spot on. 100% recommend
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by DKMProperty5th May 2021
What can you say about these screws? They come in a sturdy box with a good lid that doesn’t fall off. The head of the screws are consistent so you always get a positive drive from your impact driver or screwdriver. They go in easy and countersink well every time. I haven’t had any that have split my workpiece.
I would buy these again in a heartbeat.
Damned good screws.
To follow the tag line of the company they really do “Eat through wood”
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by BW Windows5th May 2021
Great wood screws that countersink better than most and don’t get caught on screw head. Great quality and pretty much the same price as any other screw. I’d go with these every time. What more can you ask for?
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by P and r heating29th April 2021
These screw are the best screws I’ve used , very high quality , not once they fell off my drill bit. Going into wood they bite really fast making life very easy
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by A Royal Flush Plumbing29th April 2021
Just used these to build a frame for a dry wall. Made it so much quicker and easier than having to pre drill. They caused no splits and held the vertical lengths of cls with only one screw. No ripping out from falling over whilst we checked things we where we wanted. Highly recommend these. Time saver, very good quality and strong , drilled straight through a knot with no issues or struggling. Will be my go to screw of choice now
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Eastside Electrical Services29th April 2021
These are top quality screws lovely on the way in and the addition of the beaver bit at the top is excellent. I found the lock on these screws really good as it turns out I think I prefer these to the gold screws I usually use.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by SmartPipe Plumbing Services29th April 2021
Best wood screws I've ever used, simply will not be trying any others. They bite in to wood faster and stronger. The build quality of them are top notch and seem really strong. The heads didn't round of once. Highly recommend these, only thing I may change is the box as it isn't the best plastic and could brake if dropped.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Gas Patrol29th April 2021
Really impressed with Beaverscrews, never heard of them until recently and I’m glad I did.
We used them for the first time today onsite putting floorboards down after installing radiators.
Compared to your standard wood screws that generally split most floorboards when screwing in close the edge of the board. You would have to go through the gruesome task of pre drilling every hole first.
With BeaverScrews they speed up the process,
No need for a pilot hole as they glide through wood effortlessly without splitting,
Countersunk Phillips head with a threaded nib just below the head to allow them to countersink.
Sharp point with a small flat edge to one side which allows it to drill through as your driving the screw in making it effortless.
The plastic box is flimsy and also split, (my own fault) but I don’t get screws for the boxes as have more heavy duty storage for them. Just looking for a negative
Overall fantastic screws and will be buying more in the future.
Also gave some to my neighbour and they said it’s the best screw they have ever had. (Great advert) if you haven’t watched it you definitely should
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Udell Electrical Services28th April 2021
I’ve been trying these screws out over the last few days and all I can say is that I am impressed with the look, feel and ease of use. Being an electrical contractor we go through a lot of screws and inch and a half 8s being our most used variety. On receiving the tub of what I thought were just normal screws I thought I would use them to build some racking for the back of the van as a test project. I proceeded to get my pilot drill out as usual to pre drill the holes in the soft wood. Upon opening the distinctive looking yellow lidded tub I noticed that these screws have a sharp point and a groove up them to enable them to be self drilling. I nervously proceeded to put a Beaverscrew in without pre drilling a pilot hole and it flew right in without splitting the wood. I built the racking in no time at all. I’m impressed that the screws come in a tough plastic tub as so many screws just come in cardboard boxes that disintegrate if they get wet which happens a lot on site. The branding is distinctive and it looks like a tough trade product. The screw heads seem to be strong and take the rigorous abuse from the toque gun although it was on its lowest setting as the screws flew in with ease. There is little ridges under the heads of the screws which provide friction to stop them working out as they grip the wood surface once they are driven in. I have also used some of these to fix gaps that have appeared in my MDF stair case at home and again I didn’t pre drill them and they went straight into the MDF and pulled the joints tight which was amazing. I will certainly be using these when it come to fixing floorboards and chipboard flooring back down once it has been cut up to gain access to carry out electrical work. The only downside is the sizing that is used. Being in the trade for many years from an apprentice, screws have always been asked for in imperial sizes so I’m use to asking for 1inch and a half 8s rather than the metric millimetre sizes. Although I can not complain really as there was a printed sticker on top of the tub saying equivalent to 1inch and a half 8s. It’a more to do with ordering them online. Not a major downer I suppose it’s just what I am use to.
Overall a brilliant screw especially with the wax coating which aids with not splitting the timber.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by David Hainey & Co28th April 2021
This is the first time I have been aware and tried the Beaver brand of screw. On opening the package the box was found to be cracked obviously rough handling from the courier.
The head of the screw is deep and grips the pozi bit well. The screw starts easily due to the sharp tip in soft wood and drives in quickly. The counter sink head prevents the wood from splitting.
I would recommend these screws if you are looking for a Premium product
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Adj Interiors28th April 2021
Carpenter here-firstly, the tub is a good solid tub but the lid is somewhat stiff and difficult to get off.
That being said the screw itself is very good. It comes into its own with the riffled shank and countersink head, you can screw as close to the edge as you dare and there was no splitting wood etc. With a good drill you can sink them as deep as you need to no problem at all.
All the top brand performing screws are dearer and so are these but all in all very good.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by L Kennedy Property28th April 2021
I tried these screws today, fitting 5m lengths of cladding over a garage door. There is no level ground for my stepladder which made the job harder but these screws helped. I found that the driver bit really held the screws meaning my other hand was free to hold on to whatever was available. There was no need to drill pilot holes the screws bit straight into the wood .The fluting at the end definitely seems to stop the cladding “jacking off” from the frame and in fact the two pieces pulled snuggly together not something that has happened with other screws I have used. The ribs on the head worked perfectly at countersinking the screw with no splitting at all.
All in all the quality off the screws made an awkward job a lot easier, if I have any complaints it was the plastic box. I have a tendency to pick things up by the top/lid, this meant that I did spend 5 minutes picking the contents off the floor ,I know there is a handle but if I used that then I’d have nothing to moan about.
I will be buying more of these.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Nbudge28th April 2021
There screws do exactly what it says on the tub. They go in to the wood really easy. They arrived in a tub which is a good thing a overcarboard box as in the back of a van or the shed they get knocked all over the place. They a have a very good solid head dont split or crack the wood. They really easy to drive in especially which the impact driver. So its a tick for me for these and defiantly will use again.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Uplands Plumbing & Heating28th April 2021
Used these Beaverscrews on a project at home to test them out, where I raised my garage floor using 4” x 2” Tried these Beaverscrews out this week, when fitting some new 22mm Caberfloor P5 waterproof chipboard flooring on my garage/workshop floor when I raised/insulated it with 3” x 2” off of the original concrete floor.
They arrived in a tub which is always a good start, when it comes to storing/transporting from job to job, over cardboard boxes that tend to fall to bits leaving screws everywhere.
The size I used was M4 x 40mm which equates to 8 x 1 1/2
and I have to say they were super easy to use.
My first impressions when using were that they had a good strong head which I can honestly say never stripped once, when screwing into the chipboard flooring with my impact drill. I’d also add the wax coating on them definitely helps with the speed/ease of screwing in.
My personal best bit about them is that they have a nifty little feature of 6 nibs on the underside of the head and I must say that definitely helps self countersink the head into the timber effortlessly to leave a clean smooth flush finish.
To summarise, I can honestly recommend these screws to both DIY’ers & trades alike.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Graphene Gas Solutions28th April 2021
Fantastic product! In the plumbing and heating industry so these are massively handy for when I’ve had the boards up and can just screw them all back down without piloting them first.
Also makes building frames and studs for boilers to hang on that much quicker saving time on the whole install.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by JPC Plumbing and Heating28th April 2021
Beaverscrews do exactly what it says on the tub. They start really easily and enter wood with ease, probably due to the sharp point and wax coating. They grab wood well and provide solid fixing. The best feature is the nibs under the head and reaming section which means there’s no need to countersink. Overall, excellent screws available at a decent price.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Spud the Sparky28th April 2021
Very nice screws to use, seem to fly into most wood. One of the best self drilling wood screws on the market, very similar to anothet popular screw brand however alot cheaper than those other wood screws. I've only used a few of the screws so can't say that they are all manufactured to the same quality but from initial thoughts they are nice wood screws perfect for most trades not just carpenter's.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by EC Creative Services28th April 2021
We (yes I let the other lads in the joiners shop use these little beauties as well), used these screws making some flattage for an upcoming drama for Sky Tv.
As we make a lot of flats, testing these against some of the other brands like Reisser was interesting to us.
We found as a collective (5 of us), that the screws hold well in a position drive bit. Some have slight give/movement in them, but these hold firm which is great for when we are stretching over the flat.
The self cutting head helps save time as we are constantly countersinking screws rather than just driving them in.
We found no need to use an impact driver with the beaverscrews. A normal drill/driver takes them in just as well and gives your wrist a break from the impact driver lol.
Overall we found them a great screw. Depending on quantity we would be intrigued as to what price we could purchase various packs of these screws at different sizes.
If they were the right price we would consider switching permanently I’m sure.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Routley & lemon28th April 2021
This is a review for beaverscrews
The first look at these screws you notice straight away these are a good quality product the coating is a bright and consistent golden colour with a wax feel probably to aid with application and to prevent corrosion, the cut and sharpness is of a good quality and the pozi bit seems to be deep cut which allows for a real snug fit with less chance of rounding off, even at a slight angle. The screw however looked slightly on the skinny side compared to other screws on the market but on the package says they are ce approved for load bearing construction which I'm yet to test.
So looking closer at the screws your drawn to a sharp point with a cut sharpened slot up the length of shaft for the first 4/5 threads which i assume cuts down on the need for pre drilling and splintering of the wood and cuts a nice clean hole for the rest of the screw to pull its self effortlessly down into the timber, out of all the screws I put in not one needed assistance to stop it running away or felt unstable like some screws and went in first time everytime.
Another key feature you will notice straight away is the counter rotating thread on the neck of the screw and the little nibs on the head, which has been designed with countersinking in mind. it does a fairly decent job without much chipping altho this won't appeal much to chippies who already have drill bits with countersunk bits for a perfectly clean finish but the rest of us mere mortals does a adequate job on most materials.
Overall a good quality product and will be able to give a further indepth review once using the products for a little while.
Would I recommend them? definitely
Are they good value? You get what you pay for!
How do they stand in the market with so many other brands etc? These are up there with the big boys altho time will tell of the longevity of the products
I would give them a score of 9/10 until further testing can be carried out
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by ATR Plumbing & Heating28th April 2021
Been using the screws for the last few days and really impressed. Have been building timber boxing in bathroom with 2x1 and 2x2 the screws have not split any of the softwood.
There very sharp and start off into wood very easily. Not tried there larger screws but if anything like these then they will be spot on.
have not found any metal swarf that can give you metal splinters when driving screws.
Competitively priced screws definitely will be using again.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Penfould Heating & Renewables Ltd28th April 2021
Good little screw, I tried out the 4 x 40 tub, wax coated, they went in with ease and didn't split the face of the wood at all. Head sunk itself in nice and neat. Effortless fixing.
Strong head didn't round off.
Box needs a bit of work as it didn't withstand the delivery driver but that could be more about them than the screw packaging!
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Smith’s28th April 2021
Absolutely brilliant screws, I thought here we go another useless standard screw that does not live up to the hype! How wrong I was.
I tried the 4 x 40 mm and these screws fly into any type of wood, easy to use with a really sharp end which makes starting off a piece of cake.
When used with a decent pozi bit the head shows no sign of wear, I did try to round the pozi head off which took some doing and that’s when purposely done.
I would like to see different head types like torx, and a bit or two included in the box. These are premium screws the quality is great and the fact they are waxed makes life easier these are up there with the big boys and I would recommend to anyone.
All in all these screws are a brilliant bit of kit, these will be my go to screw from now on.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by PAS Plastering Services28th April 2021
I used the beaver screws 50mm on a roof job yesterday . What I was really impressed with is that they didn’t split the timber it was a nice solid fix . If I was to compare the beaver screws to a few other make of screws on the market I would be quite confident in saying they would be a good top contender.
I would like to try some of the larger sizes of the screws may be 3 inch and 4 inch to again compare to others and see how they fix thicker gauge wood for example 3x2 and 4x2 stud work .
I would like to say by my first impression of using beaver screws I was very impressed and can’t wait to try other sizes . Thumbs up from me .
well done to the tool talk team and thank you for allowing me to trial the beaver screws
From Paul ( PAS Plastering Services)
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Hodgson Electrical28th April 2021
I didn’t think I could be overly impressed by a simple screw however I was wrong with the beaver screws,
The mains plus points for me was the point was very sharp meaning the screw didn’t slip once placed on the wood. Also I couldn’t believe how easy and fast they went in to a few different types of wood, my impact driver doesn’t even impact it’s that easy and smooth.
I haven’t had chance to test on hard woods but I would expect it to have no problem.
Screw head seems strong, no stripping or slipping and definitely no snapping. Holds well even With my over worn screwdriver bit (I’m a tight Yorkshire man)
I have no problem spending a bit more on screws if they are going to speed up my day so I would say the additional cost over cheaper screws is worth it.
By far the best screws I have ever used
If I had to pick a negative point it would be that I knocked the box over in the front of van and the lid came of quite easy and had a full box of screws all over the van floor other than that they are great
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Martyn Smith28th April 2021
Had these screws as part of tool talk testers club. Really great product, super sharp tips to start off nicely. They drive into the wood really easy. And the countersunk part is better than other screws I've used to help them go in nice and flush without ruining the wood.
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by Prenton Plumbing Service Ltd28th April 2021
Got these “waxed beavers” to try out and review, so here goes
There are an unbelievable amount of screws out there
And it can be a minefield when it comes to quality, I generally stick to what I know usually spax or riesser
As you know what your getting. .
Beaver screws are in my opinion a premium grade fixing they glide into timber with ease and accuracy.. I put this down to the manufacturing quality and the addition of waxed thread . The head of the screw stands up well to the impact bit and I did not experience slippage .
I tried out the 4x40s but have no reason to think the quality would diminish in the bigger sized screws ,
The only thing that I could see as an improvement would a free screw bit with the screws .... everyone loves a free screw bit
All in all a great screw up there with the established screws , however a waxed beaver is now my 1st choice for screwing
Review for Beaverscrews HPWS Tub by City Express Windscreen Replacement28th April 2021
I've only used the beaver screws on pressure treated timber while making garden furniture, they really do drive easier than almost any other screw I've used, the synthetic wax coating does its job really well. And the countersink threads really grip and pull the screw head in.. Super impressed and will definitely buy again.

Hi, everyone. It's Joe from Apex EC just doing a review on these Beaverscrews that Tool Talk have sent out to me. First, we'll start with the box. The lid is pretty strong to be fair. You've got the writing on the back of the lid, but it appears to be backwards. I assume that got messed up in printing. So the box itself, very tough. It's not going to break easily. I think it would withstand an impact in the van. Maybe not a fall from height.
Then this, we've got the screws themselves. Now, I don't know how well you can see, but there's a starting bit on that screw, which just helped get this screw initially started into wood. On this midsection, got a reaming bit, which again, not sure. I think it's just to clean the hallway as the screw's being driven in. Then we got these nibs on the back. That is what help sink it into a hole. Most deep Pozi point to it as well. So it fits very well in these drill bits. Should see it's not much of a gap.
So, show it driven into a couple of pieces of timber. First, we've got modern bit of timber treated, drive it straight in. As you can see, very nice flush with the joint. Definitely impressed with that one.
We've got an old piece of batten. We'll drive one of these into here. Again, for a weathered piece of batten, been outside for a while, hasn't done very badly at all. Doesn't split or anything. Still countersinking.
We've got very old bit of timber. That's come off a roof from a recent extension. And again, still bites in. There's no problems there. Even driven a couple before into the ends just to test them and they don't split. They don't show and they still sink in. Been using these for quite a while now. Come in a tub of 800 and probably used 300 by now. Great for floorboards, sticks them down, things like that, for me, an electrician. Definitely worth getting. Definitely a box for the van I think.
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.
Hi guys. Scott here from SC Electrics, testing out Beaverscrews, great name, for Expert Trades. I thought the best way to test these here right, was to have race against a couple of others. So I'll show you the screw. As you can see there, oops, getting in focus, as you can see there, a good screw. Apparently wax lubricated. With nibs on the end to help sink it home.
So we'll try it out and see how we get on. Beaverscrews, apparently, are lubricated. As we all know, there's nothing better when you get some wood in your hand, to get a lubricated Beaverscrew. So let's try it out. So got a nice bit of timber here, so it's quite difficult to get into. So first up, nice fresh battery in the drill. Deliberately using a smaller drill, so it doesn't go too fast. I've put in the first one, the Beaverscrew. That sunk down quite easily. Nicely countersunk, no problems there.
This is Screwfix Special. As you can see, the drill started struggling an awful lot more, I'm deliberately not going to add any more power. The next one, which is, as an electrician, these are the screws we use most often over here, which are square heads, which I know most joiners hate. The reason we use them? Because my boss did. In reality it's slightly easier for us because it doesn't fly off the screwdriver. I'll try it and see how far it goes. Again, neither of these two are particularly well countersunk. They're actually still protruding a bit. Exactly the same torque.
So straight away, we can say the Beaverscrew goes in an awful lot easier. They seem to be good quality, they're coated. To be honest pricewise they're all round about the same. I see no reason at all why not. They seem like good screws, give them a go. Thank you, talk to you again.
Hello, I'm Martin. This i my review of Beaverscrews, the waxed screws that eat through wood, or so the box claims anyway.
These ones here, big old tub they've sent me. Very handy, I quite like a tub because with a box they tend to if box gets crushed or broken they go all over the show. But, yeah. So anyway, been doing a few light jobs on the side with them. They seem to be quite good. Got a countersunk top on them there. The ends of them are quite sharp, which is a really good start. And they do, they literally glide into the wood, and unlike some screws they're quite easy to get back out again as well, which is really handy. Pozi drive, as you see. The bit on here, I'm told, is to sort of widen the wood out, I believe it is, before the countersunk bit gets there.
But yeah, as I say, they work really, really well. I'm quite impressed. I'll probably be looking to get a box of slightly longer ones.
