I'm putting together a face frame that has 3/4" thk. stock but has
flutes on the front face that are 1/8" deep making the effective
thickness 5/8". Last night I took some sample pieces and put them
together using the 1-1/4" screws with the step drill collar set at the
normal position for that screw and stock thickness. I then removed
the screws and cut the board across the screw hole to see where it
actually ended up relative to the front face. Bottom line is it has
plenty of stock left, at least 1/8"
You can control the position by adjusting the stop collar at the
expense of penetration depth.
