Stormin, there’s a general rule I find that applies impressively often in my world: If it’s made to do two or more things, it probably won’t do any of them real well.

I find that true of the combination head screws. Allowing the space in the center for a Robertson bit subtracts surface for the Phillips head and vice versa. I have a large box of these, 1 1/2” long, silver zinc, and they’re yours, just come pick them up!
