Homemade Tables from the Kreg Screw Selector Wheel

At one point I had misplaced my Kreg Screw Selector Wheel. So when I finally found it again - carefully tucked away on a shelf to protect it - I decided to create a couple of tables that contain the same information - just in case the Wheel is misplaced again. I am attaching that table here as a PDF file. To Kreg: I certainly don't intend to try to sell the tables or the information on them, but still, if posting these tables here is a violation of copyrights or forum policy, please remove this…See More

Revised Kreg Jig Table for Different Material Thicknesses

A while back I had downloaded a PDF file of a table with jig settings and screw lengths for different thicknesses of materials - I think I found it in this community. 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.
