Hi Ken and John.

Thanks for your responses.  I can't find Kreg 1 1/4" pan head, coarse thread screws anywhere (not even on Kreg's website), so I'll explore the 'Spax' option.

In every respect, the standard jig and screws would suit my project except for the external length of the pocket hole it creates. I'm using the micro jig, solely, to create a smaller (shorter) pocket hole that won't extend to the visible edge of a piece of 1 3/4" x 7/8" thick stock.  Kreg claim that a micro jig joint is not significantly weaker than standard. I wonder why they don't offer the same range of lengths in coarse thread pan head screws.  The longer screws would give stronger joints when fixing thin to thick, and when needing to use a shorter length pocket hole when fixing thick to thick (as in my case).

 

Not the Kreg brand but they will work for you:

     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.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…
