    Bob van Dyke on Shop Talk Live gave a great tip: When you are using a lot of screws, when you take them out of the box, line them all up to make sure they are ALL the correct length. Then measure a screw to make sure it’s the right size.

    Nah! You gotta live on the edge and experience some excitement. I take several boxes of screws, without even looking at them and mix them together. Then, I just pick them, randomly, and install as needed. It’s exhilarating! Though, that could explain my finishing issues …

    Tried that Joe but had a problem. When I mixed them on the bench some screw heads were facing the wood and I had to throw them away as they were backward.
