Hi Tim , I agree with every thing that Ken posted on the HD . Screws , I would also call service at the # posted on the main page to get their opinion !!!!  It seem,s that the rep. has been to busy making comment,s on patio cooler,s  to answer your question , that should be on the top of the list to answer any question on kreg tool,s or screw.s , that is my opinion , Have a good day , JIM !!

Hi Tim , they are scarce and I wonder myself where I can get them.  I am thinking about taking mine  back

I bought one of the HD pocket hole jigs last month and when I asked him for screws for  it he handed me a box of regular screws.  I told him that they would not work,  he looked at me like I was stupid and looked it up in the catalog and said they are not going to carry them.  That was a Lowes.  Home depot didn't;t stock them and neither did Western Tools.  I live in the capitol city of Oregon which is not small and no one has them,  Lowes is the only one who even had the jig and then no screws.  So I got a gun with no bullets.

James,

 Perhaps the Kreg Rep is just sitting back and waiting for others to offer comments, based on their knowledge and experiences.

I've noticed that when the Kreg rep replies to an inquiry, there are generally no other comments added.

That very well could be.  I just posted to a guy's question that was left open for a couple days with no one posting to it.  Now that I have I supposed someone else will chime in.  i jsut wish everyone would do so as that ios the best learing tool that there is available on here.  It is just like the posting of projects in just a finished state.  The photos, even if just a few, would really be a learning experience to others.  Their projects would be more valuable if they did and others would appreciate them that much more.

Re HD pocket hole drilling jig

I believe the jig was intended to fasten 2x and thicker stock.

Thus, the offering of coarse thread screws only, 

which will cover the populous.

I'm sure it was but I could not get any screws at all,  I wanted course thread and i have even called around looking for some and have had no luck other that to order them from some company out of state.  it should not be that way and it is not Kreg's fault.  it is the ones who order merchandice that do not know what they are doing.  i have thought about returning it but held off as I am sure one of these days someone here in this town will wake up and order them.

Ken,

I am with you on the bigger stock.....I just thought this might be better than using the normal Kreg jig and screws and maybe some biscuits to attach some 5/4 maple skirt boards to some 5 1/2" maple posts. This crazy contraption will have a douglas fir top that is double tongue and grooved self supporting flooring 2" thick. There will be a bottom shelf made of maple as well.....that will help stiffen it up and hold it together. Hey!!!! Just like the rest of us I saw a reason to buy a new TOOL!!!!! LOL.

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I think I will stay away from the HD since it seems that it is so hard to get ammo for it.

Tim,

I'd go with the HD jig---its a great tool, for fastening 2x stock, for HD joining.

A acquaintance  bought one, after he saw what I accomplished, joining 2x stock, using the pocket hole system.

He was impressed with the ease of use and assembly.

When I couldn't find the HD Kreg screws locally---

I used TimberLok Screws

http://www.fastenmaster.com/details/product/timberlok-heavy-duty-wo...

hex washer head style---

drove them in with an impact driver.

One can build some serious structures, with these screws.

(I prefer a hex head for driving these type screw.  Hex head will provide a more positive engagement vs a recessed sq head).

Sure beats swinging a 26oz framing hammer, and potentially splitting the wood, or using a HD palm nailer.

Worked for me. 

BTW---the HD Kreg screws are available thru Amazon or Rockler---$20/ 125ct.

Hi Tim and all. Sorry it has taken a couple of days to chime in. Finally found my way back to my desk. (I'd rather be out in the shop, but wasn't there either. At least I was working on some project designs, though--still not bad!)

One of the biggest challenges we face is getting retailers to stock a full selection of accessories, especially screws. The big box stores don't always have everything, though we're working hard with the biggies right now to try to get them to fill out their Kreg lines. As was mentioned before, Menard's keeps a good selection of things like the HD if you're in the upper Midwest where that chain is located.

I'd also suggest that you try the "Shop Local" dealer locator on kregtool.com. Just enter your zip code to get a listing of dealers in your area. You'll notice that we recently divided the list into "full line" and "authorized" dealers. The full line dealers, as the name implies, stock a complete Kreg selection.

Of course, mail order is an option, as well, depending on how you feel about mail order vs. buying local.

All that being said, the HD is really designed for working with 2x material and larger, especially dimensional lumber and cedar, so the coarse threads are appropriate for those materials. If you're building with thick stock for indoor use--especially hardwoods--your conventional Kreg jig will work great. Admittedly, we don't offer fine-thread in the longest lengths of conventional Kreg screws. Because you're sinking the screws in so far from the surface, though, in our tests we find the risk of splitting to be low. As mentioned in previous posts, a screw lube of your choosing can definitely help in these situations.

So, we're sorry you're having some troubles finding HD screws. We push our dealers to support the products, but we, of course, can't force them to buy. We always have products available direct, and other reliable sources have them available for order, as well (Woodcraft, Rockler, Amazon, etc.) Big box stores that carry Kreg should also be able to get any of our products via special order.

I love he HD for building with 2x stock and for outdoor projects with cedar or treated wood, but for thick-wood projects other than these, I still rely on my Kreg Jig and longer screws.

I hope this helps!

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.

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction
