    Medyo matagal na kc kaya baka in active na po sila ^^.

    Ang ganda kc ng wooded pocket jig na ginamit ni Sir Jonathan Cruz. gusto ko sana ng ganun...
    Medyo tight budget kc kaya di ko afford ung Kreg Jig. Nag sisimula palang kc akong mag gawagawa ng weekend wood projects.

    May nabibili po bang ganun? or maybe may schematics po kayo para sa dimensions at angle nya para gagawa din ako.

    Or baka po may tips po kau as alternative ng Kreg Jig.

    Madaming salamat.

          we may have made pocket hole jigs in the past using wood and two step drilling but we found out that the wooden jig may not last long and cumbersome to use in the end..a good counterpart to Kreg jig is the general brand sold at Panda.

          but the most important thing is the square drive screws themselves...i am not sure if Panda is also selling pocket hole screws..i forgot their number but i will post it as soon as i can.

            Is it ok to use Phillips and slotted screws for pocket holes?

              yes you can!

              but it is not ok for me...the square drive screws has about 12mm of unthreaded length and this is the trick to pull the two woods together which is not possible with regular screws with full length thread...

              the idea behind making the pocket hole is to make a pocket hole for the screws..meaning, you want to hide the screws...

              so yes you can.

                  Hi there. I bought my kreg jig sa olx. I was lucky there's one being sold at that time. You can use those black screws too. The square drive screws is a hassle to find so at first I just use black screws that is used in drywall/cementboards. Then now I use wood screws with unthreaded area sold locally in hardware stores like ace or wilcon. Easier to find. See pic. The screw with unthreaded area is better imo since its thicker. But black screws works fine as well
