Kreg screw question..........
I have the Kreg K3 Master kit. For the first time I changed the setting on my Kreg jig and moved it down to the 1/2" mark. I'm attaching 1/2" bb ply to 3/4" maple. The pocket holes are in the bb ply. When I insert the screws however, they don't seat within the plane of the plywood. It's like the pocket is too close to the face even though I drilled it on the 1/2" setting. I'm using the pan head screws, not the washer head ones. When the screws are tightened in place, the top side edge of the screw sticks out from just a tad on some screws to 3/32" on others.
Has anyone had a similar experience? Am I drilling too shallow (I did set the collar on the bit to the recommended position for 1/2" material)? I don't think that moving the jig to the 5/8" setting will work as the 1/2" bb ply has barely enough room now for the pocket.
Or, maybe this is a limitation of the tool and that's just what you get when using 1/2" material?
Thaks very much for your time and advice.
