I bought a Kreg ProPack quite some time ago (years) and opened it up last night to use it. I want to join 1" stock. The jig I have is set up to join 1/2, 3/4 and 1 1/2 in stock but not 1" stock. How do I use this jig to join 1" stock.
Though I seldom use 1" stock, when I do I just use the settings for 3/4 and use glue. Or you can shim the stock until you find a setting that will cause the screw to exit in the middle of the stock, then choose a screw that will give you the amount of penetration you feel is necessary. It's easy if you have a bit of scrap to play around with. I have been using the K2000 for years and have never felt a need to "upgrade". The only moving part on the K2000 is the clamp, sometimes simple is better.
Thanks for the advice, I was just getting ready to play with some different thicknesses to see what would happen. The only other thing I will need to play with is drilling depth, that won't be too hard. I used 1" lumber because it was for a window frame and that was the demension of the old one.
K3 problem the threaded insert is lose and will not hold setting. The k4 is worn and hard to use. I was think maybe epoxy the insert in place may fix it. I tried wood glue did hold. Anyone else had the same problem? The k4 I have thought about…Continue
I'm thinking about getting the Kreg Miter Gauge instead of building a sled for my table saw. I figure the miter gauge would have more uses and since the stock will ride on the saw table there is no drop off like with some crosscut sleds. And it…Continue
I'm having trouble getting my pocket holes deep enough. I'm using the kreg j4 system and using 3/4" stock 1 1/2" wide. I have set my jig to 3/4" high for the stock and set my drill bit to 3/4" to the tip. I'm pretty new at using this and I thought I…Continue
I really like the Adaptive Cutting System (ACS) and hope to buy it soon. My table saw really scares me as I have a bad knee that likes to buckle on me at inopportune times. I can just picture it happening at the table saw and tossing me into the saw…Continue
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.
