Would you use them?


what are the pros and cons of using them?

they're strong, fairly simple jig, eliminates clamping ( except for maybe alignment clamps )

not very attractive even with plug, so keep out of line of sight

Would the use of pocket screws be totally immoral??


then the question is are the screws available in SS or Brnz?

maybe, but they do have non corrosive PH fasteners

Think I'll look around for my flak jacket!
