Glen S replied to Cynthia Alaniz's discussion 'Rip-Cut Ruler'
"Are you leaving the weight of the saw on the rip-cut when you adjust it? I hold the saw off the work piece in one hand & move the guide with my other hand. That way the saw bed doesn't have weight bearing down on the ruler. I hope this…"
Glen S replied to Joe L's discussion 'Pocket screws to attach table tops'
"It matters not which screws you use. What does matter is whether or not you used some sort of clip in a groove,, on the end grain,, so the top can move across it's width with seasonal changes. HTH"

Glen S replied to Ken Kortch's discussion 'Cabinet Hardware Jig - Brad Point Bit vs. Regular Twist Bit'
"I installed 14 pulls like those on 2 different cabinets in the bathroom. I made my own jig from 1/2" ply & two 3/4" cleats. I drilled a 1/8" hole in the jig. Every drawer is the same size so I just drilled the 1/8" hole thru…"

Glen S replied to Dan Smith's discussion 'Plugs For 2x4's'
"Dan-- I've found not all dowels are the same diameter in the bin. I drill a scrap & take it with me to make test fits. Not an every time answer to your problem but it works more often than not. Also I've never mic'ed a step drill…"

Glen S replied to Michael Meyer's discussion 'Substitute for right angle clamps'

Glen S replied to Duane Heda's discussion 'Drawer Slide Jig- is it worth the money?'
"I bought the Kreg. Simply because sometimes things just don't need to be complicated. As for clamps Harbor Freight will see you the clamps with the round jaw pads. They aren't auto adjusting but then again once you set the clamp its set.…"

Glen S replied to Doc JL's discussion 'Solid wood plugs too short?'
"Use your regular wood glue on all but a little bit of the plug. Use CA glue with accelerator on the last little bit. The CA will set almost instantly as you know helping to keep the plug from going in too deep."
