FastCap Product Review / Re: Torx drive
« on: January 18, 2018, 08:37:42 AM »
*o Paul,
Mini Powerheads would be useful for the *emble of cabinet boxes, as the geometry of the head would draw the sides to the top/bottom/stretcher closing any potential gaps on the inside, as opposed to the tapered head of a wood * drawing itself through the cabinet side.  The diameter of the smaller head would fit nicer when working with 3/4" material.  I exclusively use pre-finished maple plywood for my cabinet parts.  I have attempted to use confirmed *s, but find they are too big, and the drill bits are too fragile, and not rated for use with plywood, only melamine.  I've settled on QuickTime combo drive *s again in the #2 square drive.
    Not to beat a dead horse regarding the Torx/#2square drive, but recently I had to buy a pack of 3" Torx Powerheads from my local hardwood store to complete a installation, and I broke both supplied driver bits within 24 *s.  I am using a Makita 18v impact driver, pretty standard.  I was only driving through (3) layers of plywood, no hardwood.  I sliced my finger open (the horror!) trying to remove the broken bit, so I could set the * all the way down. It's great that you will proved replacements, but that does little to help me out on site in the middle of the day.  1/6 of the way through the box and I'm two bits down, means you should provide 12 bits per package?  Yikes!
I hope this criticism will be taken as constructive, as I am still a huge fan of your products. Cheers -Ryan-

I totally agree with Dave.
     In my attempt to stream line my cabinet making/installation process I have eliminated all *s that are not #2 square drive.  This is because all pocket hole *s are #2 square drive.  So until you guys, or someone else starts making a t20 drive pocket hole *, I'm staying square. 
     Secondly what is the rational behind not being offering the same lengths across the board on all *s no matter what the drive type? 
     Lastly is there any chance of ever seeing the mini head in longer lengths, like 1.25"-1.5".  These would be perfect for cabinet *embly.
Cheers Ryan
