Quality of steel

Henry --

Perhaps you can tell us more about why it is that
some kinds of steel are better than others. Some
nails are strong, and will bend without breaking,
while those crappy drywall screws snap if you
look at them crosseyed. They're a pet peeve of
mine. I think drywall screws are probably the
most widely misused piece of hardware. They
should never be used where strength is needed.
