So I am ready to finish a simple project and I purchased a Kreg Jig Jr. to do a few pocket holes. But I cant get the thing to work. I set it up with the Kreg face clamp, adjusted drill bit and guide setting for 1/2 inch plywood (birch) and when I go to drill -- NOTHING. The drill only makes marks and splintering in wood. No holes. After days of trying unsuccesfully on different materials and making sure everything was set properly, I contacted Kreg. Tried troubleshooting problem, and found nothing wrong. But jig still did not work. They sent out a new jig. New jig same problem! Please can someone help figure what I am doing wrong? I have photos of my set up. I've watched tons of videos on using the jig. It seems completely straightforward, so what am I missing?
Thanks in advance!
