    Generic Kreg Screws???

    So I just bought the Kreg Master System. Any experience with buying generic screws and if so where can I find them? I saw some on ebay but you never know what you get. Any suggestions? Are generics near as good? Thanks for any input.

    Self Drilling/Tapping Screws Dilemma

    We just had a metal shelter built for the Kubota and stuff. The frame is 12 guage galvanized steel. The erectors, Carolina Carports (great folks and products), used self drilling screws to assemble the frame, roof etc. They left several dozen for me, and I used several to install some shelf...

    Very small screws

    Managed to successfully drive home 9 screws, but snapped the head off #10. Arg. I need a very small philips head brass screw, #1, 3/8" long (actually 7/16"). There are several sources on-line, but that would mean I end up with a box of 100 plus $4 shipping. That seems overkill for ONE screw...

    Screwy screws

    I'm building a writing table out of quarter sawn white oak. I'll admit this is the hardest wood I've ever worked with in my very short time in woodworking. The plans call for #8 fh woodscrews in a variety of lengths. So I went down to Lowes and bought a few packages. However, I am having a heck...

    OSB Sheathing - How many screws?

    I'm almost done hanging the OSB sheathing on the stud wall in the shop but I'm starting to have second thoughts about the number of screws I'm using. I didn't want to go nuts, waste a bunch of screws, and have a screw head in the way every time I wanted to hang something. Then again, I don't...

    Thread box and tap for wood screws?

    The bench I am working on will have a leg vise. My current metal vise has taken a bite out of my chisel, dented the handle of my mallet, and put black marks on lots of work pieces. Ok, alright I might have had something to do with that :). But my next vise I would prefer a wood screw. Does...

    Nails Vs Screws

    I just can't think of many reasons to use nails at all. As I understand screws hold better, and don't you have to take time to drill pilot holes for nails anyway?

    Pocket hole screws & joint creep

    I'm trying to make a simple butt joint between two pieces of plywood. They're about 10" wide. I drilled two pocket holes (at the correct depth for 3/4"), put one piece on the other, and clamped them together with a Kreg right angle clamp. The edges are perfectly flush at this point. The problem...

    A Butt Load of Screws

    Last night I posted about bats being in our house. Well today, I figured where I thought they were coming and going under the corrigations of the panels on the solar collector. I decided to add more screws to clamp down on opening under panels. Well tonight after dark, I went out front, turned...

    Kreg pocket hole screws & clamps

    I plan to build my cabinets using pocket hole screws (if I can ever get my thumb out of this splint... :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead:). The screw length charts, like the one at McFeely's are very helpful, but don't address screw gauge. A few questions: What screw gauge do you use for...
