Kreg Owners' Community

Tomorrow I will begin constructing the Shop Vacuum Cart found on the Kreg "Build Something," website. https://www.buildsomething.com/plans/PE821DAA69C097FAA/Shop-Vacuum-...

I do not have Kreg right angle clamps and right now I do not want to invest in them. Does anyone have any other suggestion for how I can glue up and use pocket hole screws to make sure this project turns out well?

Thanks.

Use bar or pipe clamps.

Thanks. I was planning on doing that but was not certain it would work. I wish I had two or three of the right angle clamps. I have a number of other Kreg products and they work really well. I just cannot afford to purchase new clamps right now.

Place "snippets" of wire brads between the joined members, so as to increase resistance to slippage of the joints when clamping and assembly. 

WorksForMe.

I am not sure I understand. Do you mean to install wire brads into one piece of lumber and leave a small tag end hanging out so that when you clamp the two pieces together it will press the tag end of the brad into the second piece? If so, it sounds like a great idea!

Insert the"tip" of a wire brad, 1/16 to 1/8" inch into the wood surface, using a brad pusher or a small tap hammer

Next---use "diagonal" cutting pliers---

place the flat side of the plier on the wood surface, with the pliers opened all the way, 

and slide the plier over the exposed brad sticking up out of the wood.

Next, close the pliers---squeeze real hard and cut-off the brad extending above the surface.

You should see a shinney looking thingy protruding from the surface.

This is what I call a "snippit"---like in "snip-it".

A couple of such snippits should suffice.  

For larger lumber material, you can use a finishing nail.

Cut finishing nails the same way, but use larger size diagonal cutters, like "lineman's pliers" for cutting heavy wire or cables.

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.
