How does that prove your point? It's a strawman argument. You have set it up so that I cannot possible know that information.

What I am asking for is not that complex. They list the episodes with descriptions on several websites. Funny thing is I bet you have made no attempt to at least try and find the episode. You are so hung up on me and how I have insulted you and others, that you have moved completely away from just providing some simple evidence.

4 years ago Angus took the time to provide a link for pics, why can't you?

Again, what's funny is you guys are making this about you, and it's about Holmes. I would just love to see what you guys are talking about and actually discuss the issues you saw. I would like to learn more about what he is doing wrong and why.

If it did it would be highly helpful.
It does describe what they did in that episode. If it doesn't mention a deck I think you can move on. But again, it's not up to me to provide you with the links and research. My links were to prove a point. That in a matter of seconds I found lists of episodes and their descriptions. His website has a list as well with some pictures.

You may not find it, but at least you tried.

So now deck screws and construction screws are the same thing, yet one is for exterior and the other for interior. So they are different?

All of the deck screws I have seen are either coated or have a dull finish. All of the construction screws are a bright brassy finish. Hardly the same.

And if they are wrong about what screw they saw, they could be wrong about what screw they saw.

Please post the link of the FULL VIDEO of every single episode. Your list of titles is useless.

You don't listen. I didn't post the link for you research, but to prove that in a matter of seconds you can start to find the information.

Do your own research...

Okay I am not that much of a prick: http://makeitright.ca/Holmes_Media/H...episode_guide/

I think it may be episode #20, like stated before by someone else.

They are good because they are so pointy they start easy and the threads are so coarse they hold real good.

I don't know why anyone would use anything else.

Ok I admit it. In read the first 2 pages and last 2 pages. My opinion is this....Who the hell really cares? You really gonna argue over a TV show? It's entertainment. NOT reality. WOW.
