OK Guys,

SO I am at the landfill yesterday and I come upon a mess of 3 inch Stainless steel Screws that someone has discarded The screws are 3 inch, about No. 10, have a bugle head, a type A thread and a pinch point. They came in a belt to be used in some sort of autoload fastening tool, and they look like they were not cheap to buy. Probably decking screws. I picked them up for general use as they were really nice looking screws, but I dont know where to get the right bit to drive them. I could use a No. 2 Robertson (SD) bit, but I would like to know what gun uses these, and if I can buy bits to drive them.

Anyone know about these?

they look like Simpson's Quick Drive System, but I couldn't find a photo of the head of the screw or drive bits on their site

Thanks Gary. These are nice screws. I found about 300 of these, and about 700 2.5 inch SD screws

Not a Simpson, I've got one and the plastic strips are differant then that one. The Simpsons have a taper on one end where you feed them into the gun.

Do you typically go to landfills looking for treasures?
