Cool Missing Holes?

Just received my STK today and when I opened the box I didn't see any of the pre-drilled holes for the bottom track as indicated in all of the photos on the web site and enclosed instructions. Is this an error? Searched for previous threads on this issue and didn't see anything on the forum. Shouldn't be a problem drilling the holes but it's going to be a PIA doing it in 30 degree weather:!

Mine was that way when I got mine back in August, I was also a little annoyed.

Default RE: Missing Holes

Just talked to Dino this morning and he stated the holes are not pre-drilled and that the instructions are going to be edited to state the user has to do this.

I think you will find that it's best to pre-drill AND countersink the plastic that holds the 1x4s. Otherwise at least some of those screws will hit the screws holding the track to the table. At least that was my experience.

And while you are at it, you'll probably want to round all the sharp ends of the plastic tracks with a rasp or utility knife. Save yourself from a puncture wound or two.
