Brackets were very nice, but it would have been better if the screws were stainless and not plated
G. Sargent –
Pretty much as advertised. I’ve deducted one star in that the T Braces were cut from some sheet steel that had some sort of other paint on one surface. Not a big deal for me but could be a problem for some applications.Update: the material is a thin vinyl protective skin to be peeled off .. sometimes takes a little effort to peel off.

The Texas Wine Guy –
Very good product. The T’s are made of a heavy gauge Stainless steel, and the provided screws are of a decent gauge and length. I will definitely purchase these again with no hesitation.
Davis, Shane E. –
The joint brace is very nice. Had a line protecting cover. The screws are average. The size was spot on. The dimensions were correct.
Screws are a different alloy than the brackets. The screws darker and have a bluish tint and are ferromagnetic so they are not stainless 304 alloy.The brackets are definitely stainless but are lighter gauge than found in hardware stores. But are fine for my application.

Most work great. Some items arrived with stains in the metal that will not come out. Had enough to finish my project, but wish all arrived clean.
These mending plates are fine for what they are, and their value is good, but there is a downside in that the countersinks for the screw holes appear to be stamped, not drilled. This makes the sides adjacent to the holes deform or bow out a little, and the edges end up not perfectly straight. With surface mounting this does not matter so much (the bowing is visible, if you look, but slight enough that few will notice), however it might require extra care if they are to be flush mounted in a routed or chiseled recess. Stamping also results in the flat head screws not seating as well as with machined countersinks. Again, this only matters where appearance or perfect flatness is important – they do not protrude enough to be a functional problem. If you do want the screws to be perfectly flush or even slightly recessed, you will likely need to drill with a good countersink bit. Stainless is a bit harder to machine than soft steel, but it is doable – using oil helps. On the plus side, the surface finish on one side comes nice and shiny (shipped protected by a thin self stick film), and looks good even with occasional scratches.These plates are thinner gauge than standard 1/16″ HW store plates, and as others have mentioned they can be bent “out of flat” with sufficient hand force. But frankly, so can any flat plate in this thickness range. IMO there is not much difference between these stainless plates and 1/16″ plates in bending resistance, and neither is designed for strength against such bending. But both are plenty strong enough in the flat plane dimensions. I am comfortable that these stainless ones have the strength to equally handle the job – and as a bonus will look much better years from now when those other plates are rusted.The protective film was not to hard to remove, but is quite thin. Apparently due to handling the film had occasional breaks or cuts in it, which meant multiple pulls were needed for those. The film only came off in one continuous pull for about half the plates.Overall not a perfect product, but I left the overall rating at 4 stars primarily due to value for what you get. Most will find them usable “as is”, and It does not take much rework to make them better, if that is needed. I liked them well enough to order again.
Well made, good buy.
