Hello, can anyone suggest what I'm doing wrong? In Jan I bought a Kreg 4 pocket jig and almost immediately made a work bench (using pocket holes) from one of Ana's plan here. It went really well and I was super pleased!
I've just come to make my second thing and I reviewed the Kreg videos again but I just can't get the pocket hole to drill properly.
Im using 12mm (1/2 inch) plywood and I've set the drill but collar, and made such the blue block is at the correct height. When I come to drill the hole, it only drills it partially and pretty much it's only the pilot hole. The wood is all churned up and it really isn't pretty to look at. Most definitely NOT a pocket hole!
When I remove the wood from the clamp I've checked and the drill can go in freely, so I don't know why it's stopping. The drill is the same one used previously and it's working normally. I've also tried with thicker pine and I have the same problem so it seems to me not to be related to the wood type it thickness, but could it be something with the drill bit?
Does anyone have anything to suggest? I've cut all my wood and so I haves to. If lumber that I can't join up!! It's quite frustrating :-(
Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.
