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!

I'm just an old old old man who has got caught up in the wood putting together bug.  I like making toys and have been able to really sell two of my creations.  I also like to build outdoor items for the patio an garden.

I live in south east Texas north of Houston and am retired.  I have a wife and no children.  I have just about all I need in my shop, even though I wish it was twice the size, as it is kinda cramped.  

I have increased from my first shop to a 10' x 20' garage.  I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for all I have.

thank you Ed

Hi Folks!  My name id Bill Heim and I'm from the Appalachian area of southwest Virginia.  I consider myself a novice woodworker and look forward to getting ideas from all y'all...

Here's my first project using Kreg pocket screws:

Nice looking glider.  I also like the Clean Basement and I am sure that woodworking will fill it nicely with machines and benches.  Good luck with your next project.

try YouTube and go to WWMM VERY GOOD NFO

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
