Could you show how the parts are oriented and how you plan to fasten?Does anyone have experience with using these in end grain? I'm thinking of using them for a bed project. I want the bed to be easily broken down.
The inserts looks simple, but they are not easy to install without the insert skewing off at a slight angle. I even purchased the special driver to try and avoid the skewing. It was not as bad as just using a screwdriver, but I still struggled with the insert.I've used the other suggested parts before and they worked good. These looked a little more simple.
Absolutely. You need to experiment with the size. Too small a pilot and the insert will either not screw in, or will break the wood. Too large a pilot and the insert will strip out under load.Do you drill a pilot hole for the insert?
