KregCS replied to Miroslav Duroo's discussion 'pocket holes in mdf / particleboard cabinet construction'
"Miroslav,  You can definitely use MDF and particle board with pocket holes.  However, you will want to be very careful when driving your screws.  If the clutch is set too high your screw will continue to drive and will come out the…"

KregCS replied to Scott Shumaker's discussion 'Pocket Hole Depth issue'
"Scott,  Unfortunately I would not be able to give a definite yes or no on if a 2" screw would work since this would not be based off of the correct settings.  I would recommend testing on some scrap pieces to see if this option gives…"

"Chris,  I will tell you that our dust port is designed of of the dimensions of a 1 1/4" Shop Vac brand hose.  They do have adapters to accommodate generic hoses and connections as well.  I have also seen customers using duct…"

KregCS replied to Laura's discussion 'Pocket hole in drawer sides -1/2"'
"Laura,  The issue if working with plywood is a bit tricky.  The reason being is that the Kreg Jig is meant to be used with material down to 1/2".  We all know that 1/2" plywood is going to be less than that.  With that…"

KregCS replied to chris cotter's discussion 'K5 VACUUM'
"Chris,  With the swivel ability of the new dust collection port you should be able to maneuver it to allow you to properly attach your dust collection.   Is there any way you can post some pictures of what you are referring to.  This…"

KregCS replied to Laura's discussion 'Pocket hole in drawer sides -1/2"'
"Laura,  I was curious as to the material you were using for your drawer boxes as well as what length of screw you were using.  If you could let me know I would be able to better assist you with your question.  Thanks!"

KregCS replied to Thomas's discussion '1/2 inch playwood to 3/4 inch solid'
"Thomas,  The issue you are referring to is due to the thickness of the material you are using.  With 1/2" plywood you will find it is actually undersized and will be less than 1/2" thick.  This greatly changes the screw…"

KregCS replied to Jim Roach's discussion 'course vs fine screws'
"Jim,  I would not recommend using coarse threaded screws in hard wood material as this greatly increases your chances of splitting.  For this application I would set both the jig and the depth collar to the 1 1/8" setting and use a 1…"

KregCS replied to Frank Gonzalez's discussion 'Router Table Question for Bosch Router'
"Frank,  Unfortunately it appears that your router only has a certain amount of adjustment.  You might take it out of the table and see if the limitation is only with using the above table adjustment or if that truly is the full amount of…"

KregCS replied to Wilbert Laza's discussion 'junior kreg 3'
"Wilbert,  There are a couple things that could be going in this situation.  First, make sure that your torque setting on your drill is turned down.  If this is too high it will over drive the screws causing them to come through the…"

KregCS replied to Bonnie J Mello's discussion 'Wooden Plugs not fitting properly'
"Bonnie,  It sounds as if moisture is your issue with the plugs.  Due to the different climates that they travel through from our warehouse, they can expand and contract making them pretty snug in some holes.  A little trick that we…"

KregCS replied to Jack Haskins, Jr.'s discussion 'Strength determined by screw direction?'
"Jack,  In this application there would not be a huge difference in the strength of your joint between the two ways.  However if you had to choose, i would recommend drilling your pocket hole in the side and going down into the bottom…"

KregCS replied to Nick Decker's discussion 'Question about pocket hole screws in oak'
"Nick,  When you are working with thicker hardwoods like this it does make it a little more difficult.  The settings we have found to work the best in this situation is to set everything up for 1 1/8" settings and then use the 1…"

KregCS replied to Frank Gonzalez's discussion 'Size of screw'
"Frank,  The general rule of thumb when working with two different thicknesses is to set everything up for your thinner thickness and use the screw for that setting.  In this application you would set up everything for 3/4" settings…"

Hi KregCS, Wondering if the Kreg Jig would be able to secure 2 pine crates together that Home depot sells, the outer edges only.

I have lost the brass locking bolt how can I get a new one
At 7:02pm on August 29, 2010, Thaddeus Webster said…
I wish I would have known before purchasing what I did that the Bench Klamp would not work with the Mini-Trak.I dont think I saw anything in the description stating that. I would have considered buying the larger Trak instead or another accessory in place of the Bench Klamp that would be compatible.
At 6:59pm on August 29, 2010, Thaddeus Webster said…
Oh, and yes. I was referring to the blue support/stop that came with my jig. Thanks!
At 6:40pm on August 25, 2010, Thaddeus Webster said…
Sorry about the ambiguity. The crescents that I was referring to seem to be cuts into the anodized aluminum made by the drill bit or chuck that made the fastening holes in the bottom of the Trak. I can send a pic if you need one. Thanks for your quick response!
