Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been doing some serious cleaning around my shop. As I’ve done this, I’ve found various things buried in corners and nooks that obviously somebody (me) didn’t put away properly and then got ‘lost’. :)
I found several boxes of McFeely’s screws from various dates. It looks like I have 3 or maybe even 4 different locations on the boxes. What surprised me was looking at the screws. In particular the NoCoRode screws. The new ones have some sort of finish on them (and are now made in China vs. Taiwan/USA), they also have a tendency to have that finish end up in the square head itself it seems. I probably toss out 5 to 10 screws out of ever 100 because the head is filled in.
Anyhow, I found it interesting to look at how the quality of the screws has changed every time they moved or in the last case changed ownership and location of manufacture.
Anybody else a difference over the years?
