Hello, my name is Robbe and I live in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, a city in Belgium.
I am 15 years old and I started woodworking a few years ago. All my machines are stored in our +25m² garden shed. I started with a small table saw and one drill, now at this moment I have 4 drills, a panel saw, a track saw and a miter saw. I bought the kreg K4 master system because I am a little bit lazy :-) and it works really fast!
So, enough about me. Let's learn from the oder members. ;-)
There are fine threads available for hardwood, and depending just where you place them will determine if you need stainless steel or just coated screws for outdoor.
You possibly already know Carba tech at Wakerley sell all the varieties. Check out their website for more info.
Some fastener suppliers around Brisbane also stock Robertson screws as well.

Hi, my name is Peter from Brisbane, Australia.
My father was a carpenter so I grew up around woodworking and tools. Looking forward to learning to use the recently purchased K4 jig.
Question: what screws for Australian hardwood seat I am building that will be outside? The blue screws I have seen are course thread but I real fine thread is better for hardwood.
PeterFine SS Screws The only hardwood screws Kreg make for outdoor use.You might be able to find a Climacoat screw the right size at a big box hardware store.
Hi Peter. Roger here from Brissy. In Melbourne is a mob called Just Screws. They are really good quality as Bunnings stuff twist off in hardwoods even if pre drilled sometimes. Just google and they send out to you. I got myself a assorted box at first and now just add what I need. Also they are square drive which is heaps better than Phillips drive. Hope this helps.
