The table was kind of fuzzy so I recreated it using Excel.Well, today I finally got my VERY cool Kreg Screw Selector Wheel and noticed there were slight differences in the screw length recommendations from that original table and for face frame vs. edge frame joints. So I updated the table and made versions for both types of…See More

Kreg Micro Pocket Drill Guide Compatible Scews

I read through the instructions and the card that came in the packaging to try to figure out which screws are compatible with the Micro Pocket Drill Guide but the real mention is a line that indicates I can use the 3/4" screws instead of the standard 1" screws if I want deeper - more plugable - pockets.I looked on Kregtool.com but still didn't find any more information about micro-compatible screws.The Micro Pocket Drill…See More
