I know it's a bit of an adventure, but I'm planning to build with cabinet where the hardwood frame is made from 1-5/16 (after planing) thick pieces. But, being stubborn, I'd still like to build it with Kreg Joints.
So, seems like I need 2" fine thread screws. Except, all I can find are 2" coarse thread - even on the Kreg website.
That makes me wonder if I'm being quite naive about it and should punt.
Why aren't there 2" fine thread screws? Just an issue of demand (like I may be one of very few to ever ask for them)?
Or, is there a structural reason why my plan of action won't work? I've mocked it up with 1.5" softwoods and everything seems pretty reasonable.
I looked around and besides seeing "self-tapping machine screws", it seems there are no fine screws longer than 1½".
I presume creating shorter pocket holes to use the 1½" screws won't work?
