do you have to use Kreg ® screws with the jig?
yes, the wood explodes otherwise
You can do anything without a jig, just depends on how skilled you are.
>>2079020The joints are stronger with them. They are cut like self tapping screws, so it bores its own holes without splitting the wood. Then they have flat heads so it sits right and doesn't blow out the pocket hole.If you are going to use the meme joints, buy the meme screwa
>>2079020Are you asking of you have to use the correct screws with the jig, or are you asking if you have to use the jig?
>>2079171Great question. I hadn’t realized how open for interpretation op’s post is.
>>2079020You don’t really have to do anything, you could just say fuck it and go do something else.
just fart on itproblem solved
>>2079020I use regular screws and I 3d printed my jig. Fuck kreg and their overpriced shit.
I swear Steve ramsey or someone like him made a video on this. If I'm not hallucinating the whole thing I think they came to the conclusion you could use other screws.
>>2079020>>2079038>>2079149>>2079167>>2079764>>2079765There are other brands pocket screws, the hole point is that not all the shaft has screw pattern, so so the one half is digging int wood the other pinching together like a bolt.
>>2079167is correct, they perform better.Some folks put a small washer on a regular wood screw to mimic the head shape, seems worth it for some projects.
>>2079764HF had a good quality replica of the jig.
