I have been in woodworking for some time now and have just recently bought a Kreg pocket system. I have been using the Kreg screws and found them to be an eyeopener. I like that fact that they are a flat screw with a shank that makes it through the first piece of wood, the extra depth threads, and the self tapping feature.
I have a couple of questions;
I would like to switch over to these screws for the majority of the work I do, not just pocket work. They do seem to have excellent holding power equal or better to standard flat head screws. I do see being able to countersink and plug just as I would a standard screw.
Kreg brand screws look good, but what about some of the other screws that are on the market? Like McFeely’s, for instance, offers an alternative. This is not necessarily a cost question, because they are close to the same price, but a quality and engineering question.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
