Can any one share your worst experience with laminate flooring? Mainly in rainy seasons how your floor turns out.

FastCap Product Review / Re: Torx drive
« Last post by FastCap on January 25, 2018, 08:16:15 AM »
Ryan, first of all we want you to be 100% happy and we are very sorry that we wasted any of your time. Secondly, the product works great but you cannot over torque them. You will break something. Itís inherent to the design of the screw head and the torques bit. Bottom line is you need to know when to stop. That is going to require a little different technique then youíre used to. We will replace any screws you want at no charge & send you as many driver bits as you want no charge. We want you happy.  Please contact Sandi (sandi@fastcap.com).

Your comments about making a small PowerHead instead of a taper is well noted. Letís see how the taper screws do.

Thanks for the quick reply.  I'll give it a try on some scrap for the next time.

It might work - but we don't recommend it - the bond between speed tape and unactivated adhesive may not be great, it would depend on the type of adhesive on the iron on edge banding. I believe each manufacturer that varies slightly. But it may be worth a try, and if it fails, then just iron it on at that point.

Hello Paul,
Mini Powerheads would be useful for the assemble 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 screw 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 screws, 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 screws 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 screws.  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 screw 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-

Ask FastCap / Apply iron-on edging with SpeedTape?
« Last post by bd82001 on January 17, 2018, 01:23:44 PM »
I've got a couple of small projects which need edge banding applied (about three total feet).  I've got some iron-on banding, but I've also got SpeedTape left over from another project.  Is there any problem using the SpeedTape with the un-activated glue on edge banding?

Thanks,
Brian

Edit... If it makes a difference, one piece is PVC, the other is oak.
