I've been trying to set up some butt joints using 23/32 plywood and am very frustrated.
I THINK I am following the directions precisely but somehow the screws keep making it through and peeking out the other side.
When the 1 1/4" screws started poking through I went with the 1" screws but they made it through the two pieces of 3/4" wood, too. As you can imagine, I'm quite frustrated with this and am trying to figure out what to do to solve the problem.
Is it possible that I am mashing down on the drill too hard thus making the holes too deep? Is it possible that I am over tightening the screws so that they are sinking deeper than they should? The stop bit setting tool uses the same level for both the 1" and the 1 1/2 inch so I don't think that is the problem.
Does this make sense? Any suggestions?
Be sure to set the collar correctly as well as the correct setting on the jig itself for the thickness of the material that you are working with. I originally had the same trouble and learned that you should set the collar on the bit to the "shoulder", not to the tip of the bit.
