Test for Success

posted 1/5/2016 in Kreg Tool Tips: Joining by Kreg Tool Company

When it comes to joining materials of different thicknesses, it’s a good idea to test screw length. Do this by drilling in to a test piece(s). It's a smart idea to keep some scrap lumber on hand for this. 

The typical rule is as follows: Set your Kreg Jig® for the thickness of material you are drilling the pocket hole in. Then, choose screw size based on thickness of the mating piece the screw will be entering in to.


 

The Screw Selector Wheel will help you identify the correct screw length and jig setting.
