D.I.Y tips and techniques in relation to carcass assembly


In this DIY blog post, we will be discussing some basic tips and tricks for working with screws and kitchen cabinets. When purchasing screws, you will notice two numbers on the box, the first of which is the size of the head. In this case, it is a 5 by 60, meaning the head is 10 millimeters across and measured from the outside of the head to the center. The second number represents the length of the screw.

When working with standard kitchen cabinets, which are 18 millimeters in thickness, the screw size needed is typically a 4 on top with a forehead of 8 and a center Posse head or Posse slot of 30 millimeters in length. It is important to use a pilot bit when installing cabinets to ensure the screw does not go through the second panel and to make it easier to start the screw without putting pressure on the carcass.

Additionally, using a pilot hole allows for a nice flush finish and a good purchase when screwing in the rest of the screws. It is also important to note the different types of shanks and tips for drills, such as the bit holder and posi drive bit, which are suitable for larger screws. To release these types of drills, simply put the tip into the screwdriver and put it in a forward motion while holding tight to release and put it in reverse to fold.
