Kreg Precision Beaded Face Frame System

I have been looking at this system for a couple of years now and been wondering when are Kreg going to release the mark 2 version with a better clamping set up and possibly a better runner slide as I've seen both of these parts of the product criticized. It's been out since 2009 I believe, any news Kreg?Also, it is impossible to find a dealer in the UK were I live to supply one, and the pricing on Amazon seems pretty high... so the question to Kreg is when are you going to have a dealer in the…See More

"Oh yes, the screw will definitely be sufficient, and will add strength. It is just intriguing to me that the clamping force of the screw is enough to hold a joint together while the glue dries. A handy tip to remember for when you run out of clamps…"

"A well placed screw with glue is usually better that a clamp and glue. In most instances it is much faster to apply that a clamp and then once the clamp is removed all that is holding it is the glue. "

"Jason, There are some applications, where using the Kreg pocket hole joinery is more suitable over using external clamps, while the adhesive is drying.  Pocket-hole joinery is useful for this purpose, as well in ''pinning''…"

"Hey I know this is an old thread, but I just watched the trim carpentry episode where Gary builds the window seat and book cases. It seems to me that the kreg screws are used to clamp the shelf into the dado in the side of the book case. Since he…"

"Excellent reply that describes all of the elements of why dadoes and screws and the use of glue.  I seldom use dadoes on any projects anymore and that is the beauty of the pocket screw.  Removes the need to dadoe which is time consuming…"

"Great question Mike. Dadoes are often used to help align pieces, as already said. part of that goes to tradition that sometimes is hard to break, even with the introduction of new technology like Kreg Joinery.  Another time for a dado is if the…"

"Mike sometimes i use dados just for positioning a mating piece too.Stops to much movement when adding pocket holes and glue does that make sense?"

Hugh Clare replied to mike healey's discussion 'Dado + kreg = why'
"Mike, I don't know what the reasoning is for a pocket hole/dado combination. As for a pocket hole/glue combination, I use it. Gluing up a large panel like a table top can be awkward and cumbersome. The pocket holes eliminate the need for…"

Dado + kreg = why

As a newbe to Kreg pocket hole technology I am to some degree puzzled as to why Gary Striegler in his trim carpentry instructional CD incorporates a dado in conjunction with pocket holes. I can see the potential for added strength and the opportunity to eliminate torsional movement. However, why do all the others not use a dado. Is it needed or not?   Same question on glue to Kreg,, if it is not needed why do they all use it... just built my first structure with neither glue nor dados, seems…See More
