Brass Floorboard fixings for a removeable board

Postby DIY Steve » Tue Oct 30, 2007 7:26 pm

I'm sanding and varnishing my floorboards, however I'd still like occaisional access under a few boards, but preferably with attractive fixings.

I've seen some brass countersink screws which sink into a permanent brass housing, so they're unscrewable without splitting my ancient boards.

I guess they're like cup washers, but countersunk to match the screw and leave a flush finish.

Any ideas where I'd get these from?

Or any suggestions for an attractive but easily reusable fixing system?
