Hi guys

I have been trying different forms on the screw in the beading tool and I have found that using a No 10 slotted head screw I could get the best results by gripping the screw between the head and the point of the screw in an engineers vice with the slot horizontal and filing down to the slot on both sides of the screw body , thereby leaving a section of the slot still in the head for adusting in the stock.

Gary although I do have a stock of slotted head screws I tried your suggestion of sawing a slot in the head of a pozi/phillips screw head and filing it as above and it also worked just fine, also still able to adjust using a pozi driver
