drilled too deep... right into jig

Oops, I set the jig and the drill collar wrong and drilled 2 holes clean through the wood and right through the blue plastic. I can see the clamp rods through the holes but the drill stopped just…Continue

Attaching Kreg band saw fence
3 Replies

I have a 35 year old Delta 14" band saw. It has two holes in the left edge of its table but they are NOT threaded. Will the Kreg band saw fence attach properly to these unthreaded holes? Thanks.  JoelContinue

"Great tip. I'll use that method for setting the collar from now on and never drill too deep again. Thanks!"

"Like Edward said, and it seems easier to adjust the locking collar this way.  Sometimes it just makes the adjustment more understandable, and then "fine-tunings" for unique combinations are more foolproof. The goal is for the drill…"

"Thanks Rick. What is the benefit to this "spacer" idea over using the standard Kreg approach? Is this just more foolproof, or does it improve the joinery? I'm new to pocket holes and I'm anxious to learn. Thanks for your…"

"Joel, using the K3 or K4 with the drill guide set for your wood thickness, insert the drill in the guide whole.  (No wood clamped in place.)  Loosen the lock collar. The drill will bottom out on the Kreg jig base.  Slide coin or…"

"I don't understand the discussion about the dime/half dollar/dimples. Exactly where do you "lay a dime" and why?"

Rick replied to joel adler's discussion 'drilled too deep... right into jig'
"Perhaps a half dollar is better.  I read that those "dimples" were not such a good thing since they could hold the boards apart. I think using a spacer is easier for lining up the collar anyways."

"I just did this last week, i almost wanted to cry, but it still works fine and mistakes is how you learn.  I'm going to try the dime trick."

Edward Reifinger replied to joel adler's discussion 'drilled too deep... right into jig'
"A good set up tool and a reminder to set stop corectly.    I lay a dime on the jig and let the drill rest on it.  This gives you a perfect little dimple hole on the end of board everytime. "

drilled too deep... right into jig

Oops, I set the jig and the drill collar wrong and drilled 2 holes clean through the wood and right through the blue plastic. I can see the clamp rods through the holes but the drill stopped just short of them. Any ideas about how to plug the holes to keep sawdust out or do you think it won't bother anything down the road if I just leave them as-is? I don't want to put any glue in the holes since it might drip in and effect the clamp operation. And, I can't just tape over them since that would…See More

"Since I already have much of the "stuff", I'd interested in the "toolboxx and screws" offered by Highland for $59.99, but NOT the whole $300 package! That doesn't make sense. I usually shop at my local Woodcraft so…"
