Is the Kreg Drawer slide jig worth the money or is the Rockler Universal drawer Slide jig better?.

Thanks.

On the Kreg I like that you can reverse the jig to fit the drawers as well, it lacks the repeatability of the Rockler with the adjustable height bar.

Rockler you have the bar to adjust height but you have to take the slide apart and you can adjust the set back. Also has a cam lock to hold the slide in place.

For me the Kreg would work out cheaper as nobody imports the Rockler to Australia and I can cut a spacer to get heights, a straight edge clamped in just isn't as sexy but it is another option.

I have the Kreg jig. Bought it with some gift $$. It works just fine. Simplicity does have it's advantages.

Thanks Brad, think I will go with the Kreg. Not having to separate the slide to install it is a big plus to me.

Thanks Glen! Going to go with the KISS (keep it simple stupid) method and get the Kreg.
