Robert Melrose replied to Bradley Smith's discussion 'How to use trak and stop kit with a mobile miter saw stand?'
"You would have to build table wings on either side of the saw and come up with a way for them to register from the same spot whenever the stand was taken down and put back up in order for the measurements on the tape to be accurate."

"Yes, the router plates are the same size and use the same levelers."

Robert Melrose replied to Andy Harris's discussion 'Kreg Hinge Jig'
"I've found that with Euro hinges and the profile I route into the edges that I need to use thicker stock for the rails and stiles of my cabinet doors. I make mine ⅞" and no longer have a problem."

"You could try lining up the leveling blocks to the lift and then drill new screw holes in the bottom of the table."

Robert Melrose replied to Deac Manross's discussion 'How easy is it to adjust router bit height adjustment with a Kreg Router Table? Can you do it ABOVE the table?'
"You would have to drill a hole for that. The Kreg router plates don’t have any mounting holes in them. They do have a template that will help you center your router though. Then you mark the screw locations and the location for the height…"

Robert Melrose replied to Mark Schwartz's discussion 'Difficulty Drilling Pocket Holes and Screws In ACQ Treated Pine'
"This may sound silly but is the drill turning in the right direction? Clockwise? There's no reason that a treated board should drill that hard unless the bit is dull or broken."

Robert Melrose replied to Jim's discussion 'Beginner here, K-5 jig,'
"You can use it on 4x4 stock just not in the clamping fixture. The K-5 should have come with a guide for using it outside of the fixture. Use the 1-½ setting and drill on at least 2 sides."

Robert Melrose replied to Mark Schwartz's discussion 'Difficulty Drilling Pocket Holes and Screws In ACQ Treated Pine'
"Sounds like the bit is dull/broken. If it wasn't before it certainly is now that it's been heated like that. Make sure you are using the correct settings on the jig and correct stop collar position. How are you joining the boards? End…"

Robert Melrose replied to scott.barnes's discussion 'Mini Trak with Bench Klamp?'
"The bolts on the kreg clamps don't fit in the mini track. Kreg sells klamp track for the clamps. If you used t-bolts with the same thread it would work but you would have to cut them to length."
