Kreg Owners' Community

Hi There fellow pocket holers,

I am working with 1 3/8" (35mm) hardwood (oak) stock.

The Kreg Owners Manual says (or rather implies) that I should be using fine thread screws at 2" (51mm)  length.

Problem is I cannot find these to buy anywhere.

So I am wondering -

Does Kreg make them in the first instance?

If not

What might be a suitable alternative?

Response from Kreg directly would be appreciated also.

Regards

I came across this on-line response from Kreg:

https://www.kregtool.com/customer-service/questions/joining-tools-q...

"Why is there not a fine-thread screw longer than 1-1/2"?

We do not offer a fine-thread screw longer than 11/2" due to the fact that fine-thread screws have a smaller diameter and have the tendency to break off in harder woods. If you are working with hardwoods thicker than 11/2", you can set your jig up for 3/4" and use the 11/2" fine-thread screw. This will give you almost 1" into the mating piece, creating a strong joint."

Festool Domino 500

The first thing I will do is set price aside and focus on the tool and why I bought the Domino.
