Here is a link to an article I found interesting about brass and bronze. Thought it might be helpful.

Thanks Ray. Good reminder to older builders and new ones.

Good article, thanks.

And besides all that, try even hand-tightening a brass screw into pre-drilled hardwood... odds are it will snap.

Bronze is all I will use, other than the odd stainless steel fastener where its exposed.

Brass is pretty but breaks if you breathe too hard on it!
