Re: Inquiry about screws for Coroplast or Cor-X: Bill Schoenbaum at
Prestige Plastics 201-569-1800) designs and manufactures coroplast
boxes.  If you have a large quantity of boxes to make, it may be
cost effective to have them made commercially.  Prestige Plastics
also sells a variety of plastic screws and fasteners.  I have
constructed  coroplast boxes at the Museum by simply stitching the
side flaps together.  By first making guide holes using a pin vise,
the stitching process with  heavy gauge linen thread is very easy.
