Hi, my name is Peter from Brisbane, Australia.
My father was a carpenter so I grew up around woodworking and tools. Looking forward to learning to use the recently purchased K4 jig.

Question: what screws for Australian hardwood seat I am building that will be outside? The blue screws I have seen are course thread but I real fine thread is better for hardwood.

Thx
Peter

Peter

There are fine threads available for hardwood, and  depending just where you place them will determine if you need stainless steel or just coated screws for outdoor.

You possibly already know Carba tech at Wakerley sell all the varieties. Check out their website for more info.

Some fastener suppliers around Brisbane also stock Robertson screws as well.

Fine SS Screws The only hardwood screws Kreg make for outdoor use.
You might be able to find a Climacoat screw the right size at a big box hardware store.

Hi Peter. Roger here from Brissy. In Melbourne is a mob called Just Screws. They are really good quality as Bunnings stuff twist off in hardwoods even if pre drilled sometimes. Just google and they send out to you. I got myself a assorted box at first and now just add what I need. Also they are square drive which is heaps better than Phillips drive. Hope this helps.

Thanks Roger. C&L Tools at Bango also have the Kreg screws and are closer to me. Have looked at Kreg screw range and cannot find fine thread blue or stainless screws. Maybe I missed them.
Will try Just Screws web site
Thanks for the link to the SS Fine thread Kreg screws. I had missed them in my search.

Hi!

Hi, my name is Jim and I live in Pensacola, Fl. I have been doing projects for years, but wanted to make my own cabinets and do some woodworking, I like the looks of the Kreg Tools and have purchased several over the holidays, now it is time to get to work. I had never heard of Festool before, any recommendations on Routers, and any pros/cons to the Kreg desktop router table to the full size one? What is your favorite tool?

Hi Jim, pleased to meet you, favorite tools? hmmm, mitre saw, scroll saw, jigsaw, ah damn, they all my favorite!

I have a Ryobi router and table, works fine and has for the last 15 years, Festool is very expensive here in SA but they are very good tools, I found some tools called Power Plus made in Belgium, excellent quality and very accurate, definitely a good buy here at the prices (laser pendulum jigsaw was R 750.00 = US$ 58.00)

I am a budget buyer, always looking for a good deal, we have limited choices here short of bringing stuff in from the US. Honestly, my KREG Pocket HD and std are my all time favorite, I just love pocket joinery, BTW I also have quite a bit of the German Wurth stuff, also expensive but quality that you cannot fault. chat soon buddy, have a great 2018!

Dennis M here. 

New Guy to the pocket hole joinery world.  Just bought the J3 pack to get my feet wet.  Am currently building a coffee table out of Sapele wood. Beautiful wood and I sure as heck dont want to screw up and have to redo something.  Will be asking fng (funny new guy) questions and asking for pointers.  Appreciate any help or vectors to videos I should should check out.

Thanks in advance!

Festool Domino 500

The first thing I will do is set price aside and focus on the tool and why I bought the Domino. 

      I have orders for a few dining tables and chairs.  I have made one prototype chair, while I have all the tools to make angled…
