Clive....some of those screws are a few mm difference on centres. Best take them out and do it agin I think. ;)  Don't want standards slipping eh? xD

PS, what length are those screws :S?

 

I'll try and do better on the bit underneath! :)

 

41mm..'coz they were CHEAP in Lidl. Got boxes of 'em.

May not be that critical, but my Senco does not like screws longer than 50mm, unless you remove the appropriate limiter ... then it is OK.

 

Mine is a 14V DS202, and is fine. So if yours is 18V it will be great.

Now the ceiling screws look too far apart. :ph34r:

 

Yeah, I've slowly come round to the @Nickfromwales idea that more is better and screws are cheap. I'm doing 100mm centres now. Can always add more!

No that’s the centres for ordinary boards - you’re using MR board and it’s 87.5mm centres unless you use screws longer than 40mm where you can go to 112.5mm....

150 centres will hold any board 

Just be careful not to sink your screws in to far Exspecially on ceiling They will pop when wet

1 mil into the paper is fine

I’ve just noticed the plain board 

It looks like machine gun fire 

No need to put so many in 

Definately ajust your depth

Parkside seems to have every trade covered, if it works for you thats great.

@PeterW @nod I am fixing 11mm OSB and wondering what size centres you recommend.

The Senco 18V is great you just need a strong arm, no jams yet.
