    The screws supplied with most of the standard stock I ended up not using as they were CSK hinges and didn't look right so I use Rnd head ones now, more money but they look right.

    Small quantities are available on e-bay and aliexpress if you are willing to search out the type and quality.

    Having said that I have a just few 1,000 in stock so if you want any PM me and will work out a deal.

    Thanks again Eammon, I'll have a look to see what I might need, wouldn't be a lot I guess as I certainly wouldn't make boxes to sell on. So much to do, so little time.

    I've been brought to earth with a bump recently and stated to evaluate how I spend my time after my sister had a massive stroke on Christmas eve and pased away 3 days later without regaining consciousness. She was far too young at 61 and makes me realise we just don't know what's around the corner.

    NO worries Bob, if you want a set then PM me your address.

    Sad news mate 61 is very young, I have heard it so many times tho and you have to make the most of life while its here.

    As my dad always said, if you haven't done anything in your life that you always wanted to do, then there is only one person to blame.. YOU..
