10" Professional Cabinet SawStop just fell apart. - 58 replies

Pocket-Hole Bit - 20 replies
The following story is NOT for the faint of heart. But it’s a true story, and I hope many others learn from my mistake. A few years back, I was putting together a face frame project using simple pocket-hole joinery. Before I go on, I must say that most people know me as Mr. Safety. I’m constantly thinking safety. This one day i...
