So I finally got a chance to use this over the weekend and I had forgotten how great of a kit this is.
I was converting a kitchen cabinet to a spot for the microwave so I was basically building a face frame to inset within the original cabinet frame. I was using 3/4” Aspen and the original frame was also 3/4”. I had a few spots where I don’t know quite what happened but the screw went just a little too much and started to splitting the wood on the front side. I’m not sure if the wood was slightly less than 3/4” in that one spot, if the screws were a little long (1 1/2”), if my angle on the screw insertion was a little off from the pilot hole, or if I just drove the screws a little too deep into the soft wood.
My question is have you ever (just to be on the safe side) used the wrong sized set up on this jig? ie I would have used the 5/8” set up rather than the 3/4” or if you were working with a something that was 1 1/8” thick using the 1” spacing.
