I've just started to notice that many of the plugs I try to insert into the pocket holes do not want to slide in freely as they did once. Anyone know of a reason this might be happening? With wear does the drill bit get narrower?

I have a Fein Multi-Master and with the offset/fine tooth blade it is mear seconds to flush cut the plug head off. Then off to final sanding without any intermediate steps.

I did see that but just never tried it. I can see where tight corners could be a problem. I wonder if one of the new oscilating "Multi Tools " would work?
I use a single cut Japanese razor saw, and with only a couple of strokes of the saw the plug is off. Be careful to keep the saw absolutely flat against your work surface, because even a slight tip toward the teeth with result in a nasty scare.
No. That's not it, Joe.

Drill is worn out, which makes the diameter smaller. Replace the drill.
I use a dremel Multi-tool, set on 8, to cut my plugs flush. It works well, but you really need to pay attention and not gouge into the wood. This just creates extra sanding if you do. I still have to use wood filler to cover any tear-out from the drill or small voids that the plug might miss.

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?

Miter saw stand

     Has anyone used one of the Kreg Universal Stand configurations as the base for a miter saw workstation with fold down wings?  I scrolled through the pics in the community and all I saw were using a DIY base cabinet.  I have an extra Kreg router…Continue

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…
