"Sure seems to be a lot of jiggers worrying about the 1/2 inch plywood being only 15/32 of an inch thick.  Guess I do not see the issue as being a problem.  Being using plywoods for over a quarter of an century and have known that plywood…"

"I set the drill bit stop 1/32 to 1/16 of inch short of the markwhen working with plywood.  This prevents the poke through. Almost all plywood is 1/32nd undersized, no matter the source or country of origin. "

"Interesting.  I used some scrap to test the joint, and as I suspected about a 32nd of the screw pokes through.  What I did was file the point(s) of the screw off.  Not a solution for 'finish' work, but for the shop drawers…"

"Merle,  When working with 15/32" plywood, you will not be able to use the standard 1/2" settings on the jig and be able to use the maxi-loc screw as the head will stick above the surface.  However, you can use the pan head…"
