Good if you are in the trade but if you are a diy'er then this has got to be a good price..?

Even allowing for a newly tiled wall 50mm long should suffice, may find 75mm a bit too long in most applications.

Can always be cut down to size but I have always struggled stretching the shorter ones...(_;)

When I found screws lying around in my workplace and I asked people (of the opposite sex) if they'd like a free screw, nobody wanted it.

No need to be sarcastic, you probably know full well that 75mm are often too long.

Not everyone will put on a 3.5 nut before shortening, thus ensuring the end isn't ruined.

75mm are handy to have in the toolbox ( I've added heat by the way ) but there use(s) are few and far between.

none in stock near me

Sorry... Trying to bring in a bit of humor. No offense intended... ;). Good tip about the nut though, thanks.

erm which side do you put the nut on?

I'm guessing it's not on the bit that your cutting.

Put the nut on, cut the side away from the head then unscrew the nut; that will clean up the cut end... I think that is correct

SweatySock is correct, put the nut on ( you can only put in on 1 way ) cut/shorten to length required then unscrew the nut which will ensure any 'rags' are taken off and 'cleaned'.

This applies to any threaded bolt or screw which is being shortened, if you don't sometimes the bolt or screw is unusable until the end is filed.

Never known a price this low for these, even trade, Tops Tile charge £2 for a pack of 4 and Wickes are similar. If they are cheaper elsewhere then a link or info would be good as other sizes would be useful. They can be cut down but the end needs to be filed before use.

has anyone managed to find stock any where?

as a sparky, this is cheap, and if you have decent cutters they have a screw cutter on them to give you a clean cut if you nened to shorten them.

Saw yesterday but had no stock so didn't post, bought 50 40mm for £4.80 which isn't bad compared to wickes etc.
