Announcing the T Series Torx Screws

5th May 2020

We love Torx screws. Square drives are way better than Pozi, and Torx are way better than Square. We stoked to announce our new "T Series", counter sinking interior screws. They have a bunch of features to ensure they split wood less and drive faster and straighter. They also have a low chromate coating for professionals using screws all day everyday, and for a better overall environment.

We have these in 17 sizes from 15mm #6 up to 150mm #14 - try them out!

Credit Card Update

28th April 2020

We've just put our website update live that replaces the credit card processor Paypal with Stripe. It's a much simpler and easier to use service and we look forward to getting it running as sweetly as possible. If you have any problems please contact us and we'll get right on it.

Credit Card Payment Problems

21st April 2020

In the last few days we've had a few reports of people hitting credit card errors when trying to pay through Paypal. We're having a look into it now. If you do hit a problem please pay by internet banking and if you email us a screenshot of the transaction we'll ship the order ASAP.

COVID19 Update

23rd March 2020

Current status: Courier Post is still shipping and we will be dispatching orders on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.

Wow, crazy times.

Superscrews is a small family business and we live rurally. This means, if our courier service stays operating we will be able to continue shipping orders indefinitely. If however any of us get sick then we will have to stop taking orders.

We would like to wish everybody the best of luck, family, community and health in this time and look forward to everything returning to normal. I have been told there is a tree house to build by my 9 year old so to preserve our mental health we will certainly be putting some time into our building projects along with looking after the family.

New Stock Has Arrived!

21st February 2020

We've just had over forty pallets of stock arrive and we've been filling our new warehouse (as we build it which is a bit crazy).

  • Purlin/batten 75 and 100mm screws are back in stock
  • We've added a new series! The "T Series" is a Torx drive countersinking interior series. We have them in 6, 8, 10 and 14 gauges and 17 different lengths. Made in Taiwan they are coated in a low chromate "Eco" silver finish which we'll write more about soon.
  • We've restocked our pocket hole screws - the much asked for 65mm ones are now back in stock as are the 35mm and 45mm.
  • Due to exchange rates we've had to increase prices a small amount. We're still looking to retain our competitive edge and aim to lower our free freight limit soon from $200 to ... $100? Stay tuned.

Our new website is up and running

17th December 2019

Our new website is up and running

Our new website is here, and so far we're super stoked!

The goal was to make it easier than ever to find different styles and sizes of screws.

Improvements to the site:

  • It indicates next to each product if you have it in your cart.
  • All screws in a series are on one page, including their different gauges.
  • A quick way to get between the products (see the 'Screwfinder' top right).
  • Mobile Phone friendly.

We're continuing to work on the site, as well as increasing our range of products with a new shipment due January 2020. We'd really appreciate any input you may have, email us at email@superscrews.co.nz or look us up on Facebook.

Order Now For Holiday Projects!

12th December 2019

We will be shipping screws on all but the Statutory Holidays over the Christmas and New Year period. Couriers are always a bit stretched over this time and we encourage everybody to order with a few extra days in hand if you need screws for your Holiday projects.

A cool customer project on Lake Tarawera

7th May 2019

Jetty project, Lake Tarawera BOP

This is a photo of a great project Brett shared with us using Superscrews Q series screws.

Really inspiring for us to see what people are building, so please keep the photos coming. Either to our email address or find us on Facebook. Cheers Brett!

"New Jetty for clients at Lake Tarawera BOP. We have found the Q series screws are awesome for strength and ease to put in, our clients like the stainless steel finish as well. Quote from the Council Inspector. Excellent construction."

"Thanks, Brett Bosley - Lake Security"

Happy Christmas and New Year from Superscrews

16th December 2018

It's been a busy month here at Superscrews HQ shipping out a record number of orders, meeting with potential suppliers from Europe and building a new macrocarpa deck on the end of our shed.

This month also tested us with our courier company losing a record number of parcels, ARRHHGGG. We'd like to apologise for this to anyone effected, it seemed to be mainly the center of the North Island. We will have a new courier company by the years end. If you have one you prefer please let us know!

We will be closed 23rd Dec - 7th January, we will be looking for some surfing and finishing our deck project.

We'd like to thank everybody who has purchased from us this year, and wish you all a happy holiday season with great weather and maybe even a highly rewarding building projects on the side.

Footings done, timber going down on the new deck.

From the Favourite Useful Screws Dept. - 6 Gauge A Series

1st July 2018

We've been turning to our 6 gauge screws a lot lately for a variety of projects. They're brilliant for edge joining ply and pretty much anywhere that the screw splitting timber might be an issue. In this photo Gwilym was using them to make a jig for the kids to make rubber band guns.

Our 6 gauge screws have a head diameter of 6.8mm so while not true 'finishing' screws they are a little less obvious visually. We have them in lengths of 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35mm and you get 400 screws in a bag.

For the month of July we'll be sending out free driver bits with every purchase of these wee wonders.
