I think I have mentioned this before, but I consistently get "hanging
chads" around the edge of my pocket holes. I'm using the Kreg bit, and
have probably only made a couple hundred holes with it. They're usually
on one side only, which I believe is the left side of the hole; the side
where the drill bit edge "exits" the wood. Sometimes they're 3/16 long.
If memory serves, it's more pronounced in plywood.
I don't really use pocket holes where they will be visible, but I still
prefer the holes to be neat. I found a really quick way to clean them up
too, with a mini drum sanding bit on a dremel-like tool.
Is this common? Does Kreg acknowledge the issue?
