Driver Head Slippage

I am having some issues with slippage when driving in my pocket screws.  I have used two different drills, with the same results.  I feel like I am putting enough pressure as well.  I end up using a…Continue

Right Angle Clamp
2 Replies

I just bought the right angle clamp and it holds well, but it seems to pull up on the top of the entry hole.  I am afraid it may split my wood.  Is this normal?  Is there a trick to this? Continue

"It matters not which screws you use. What does matter is whether or not you used some sort of clip in a groove,, on the end grain,, so the top can move across it's width with seasonal changes. HTH"

Pocket screws to attach table tops

Hello, I have made a whole set of Mission tables, and use pocket screws to attach the tops, this was before I actually knew a lot about wood movement.  However, after a couple of years, I have not seen a problem in any top I have attached this way..  Is it generally a bad idea to do this?  I plan on making a t.v. stand and am wondering if I should keep doing this. See More

Festool Domino 500

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

Kreg Foreman
