david ,   very nice job on the twin glass tower,s  , well done , thank,s for showing your project , Jim !!

Nice job on the display towers david .

Thanks Mick with some dado's and a kregjig the glass worked out great.

Derek,

TIP: When adding a top finish to a surface, and the fluid gets into the predrilled holes,

place a thin cloth over a 1/8" dowel, insert it into the hole. twist/turn & lift out the dowel to remove the excess liquid that has entered the hole.

Reposition the cloth on the end of the dowel rod and repeat.

Perform this proceedure before the coating dries.

If after the coating has dried, chuck a drill bit into a hand drill---

with slow turning of the hand-drill, the coating will easily come out.

(The flutes of the driil bit, will cut-out the dried coating material).

Hi David;

>>>...When I stained and urethaned, the holes picked up some of the urethane and I had trouble getting the shelf pins in. I should have waited until after the wood was finished and drilled all the holes then./p>

Thanks guy's but the wife done bet you all to it belivie it or not she cut off the ends of Qtips and put them in the hole's and it worked.

David,

I've used Q-Tips, but---

I've found the fine fiber cotton threads will often times pull out from the wad,

then I'd have to pick out the loose fibers.

Since I keep my nails trimmed short, it was difficult for me to grab those little fibers---

then get wet stain, varnish or the like, on my finger tips.

Perhaps if I added some long pointed fake finger nails and sharpened them to a point, it would be easier to grab those little buggers---or use tweezers.

nice choice. i just finish my first project with this same jig (5mm version).  it worked better than expected for me. super easy to use, accurate, and consistent.  even when you drill on the other side of the board, as long as you index it the same, the holes on the opposite side of the board were perfectly align!

Thanks Adam it worked out great for what I was doing.

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.



Then I installed it.. perfect fit, leaves just enough room to adjust the setting screw on my K4.



Then the real test, hook…
