Greetings,
Lefty from Southern California. I have loved working with wood since my first junior high wood shop class in 1962. Lately my wife and I have been taking classes at Paloma’s Community College, northern San Diego’s County. We build everything from Shaker oval boxes to ukuleles, chairs, tables and marquetry projects.
Currently working on remodel of our kitchen. And the Kreg jig really comes in handy.

Hello, my name is Robbe and I live in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, a city in Belgium.

I am 15 years old and I started woodworking a few years ago. All my machines are stored in our +25m² garden shed. I started with a small table saw and one drill, now at this moment I have 4 drills, a panel saw, a track saw and a miter saw. I bought the kreg K4 master system because I am a little bit lazy :-) and it works really fast!

So, enough about me. Let's learn from the oder members. ;-)

Hi, my name is Peter from Brisbane, Australia.
My father was a carpenter so I grew up around woodworking and tools. Looking forward to learning to use the recently purchased K4 jig.

Question: what screws for Australian hardwood seat I am building that will be outside? The blue screws I have seen are course thread but I real fine thread is better for hardwood.

Thx
Peter

There are fine threads available for hardwood, and  depending just where you place them will determine if you need stainless steel or just coated screws for outdoor.

You possibly already know Carba tech at Wakerley sell all the varieties. Check out their website for more info.

Some fastener suppliers around Brisbane also stock Robertson screws as well.

Fine SS Screws The only hardwood screws Kreg make for outdoor use.
You might be able to find a Climacoat screw the right size at a big box hardware store.

Hi Peter. Roger here from Brissy. In Melbourne is a mob called Just Screws. They are really good quality as Bunnings stuff twist off in hardwoods even if pre drilled sometimes. Just google and they send out to you. I got myself a assorted box at first and now just add what I need. Also they are square drive which is heaps better than Phillips drive. Hope this helps.

Thanks Roger. C&L Tools at Bango also have the Kreg screws and are closer to me. Have looked at Kreg screw range and cannot find fine thread blue or stainless screws. Maybe I missed them.
Will try Just Screws web site
Thanks for the link to the SS Fine thread Kreg screws. I had missed them in my search.

Hi, my name is Jim and I live in Pensacola, Fl. I have been doing projects for years, but wanted to make my own cabinets and do some woodworking, I like the looks of the Kreg Tools and have purchased several over the holidays, now it is time to get to work. I had never heard of Festool before, any recommendations on Routers, and any pros/cons to the Kreg desktop router table to the full size one? What is your favorite tool?

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
