I use ones that look like the one on the right. Even the same finish. I think they were "TEKS" brand, but I bought a large quantity a long time ago. On mild steel you could drill/tap several holes with the same screw.

The one on the left looks.........cheesy somehow. Is it any good?
The difference? About $.15 each. And amazingly, the ones on the left actually work quite well. I was surprised the first time I used them. In some steel they actually work better than the cut ones.

What brand?
The cut ones were Fastenal. The stamped ones are bulk off Ebay. I dont do that purchasing so I don't have a brand for you.
