Kreg Owners' Community

Hello, has anybody in Australia managed to get hold of the Kreg KWS1000 Mobile Project Centre? I have tried Amazon but the freight was more than the tool cost and the local distributor, Carba-Tec don't have it and are't interested in helping. I assume this might change when Amazon open in Australia but that won't be until 2018.

Thanks.

Lee.

Hi Brad,

      It was a 135 degree plain twist drill.  Not as good as a counter-bore but it allowed the rivnuts to be flush.

I got it around October last year. Overall, a good buy, but I am really bummed about the fact it is VERY far from being flat, and not adjustable.

Did someone succeed to adjust the wings to actually be a flat 180 degrees, and no more than that?

Thanks!

I am loving my work centre. True, the top isn’t flat but I wouldn’t expect it to be. It folds after all. The self adjusting clamp that comes with it is a real timesaver for me. I have since bought the Kreg accu cut and the rip cut jig. I find the method of attaching the saw to these to be truly awfull so I have the saws permanently with 5mm screws. I guess I don’t expect things to be 100% every time because they never are no matter who the manufacturer is.

Edward, 

The table top is not designed to be a completely flat surface.  It is designed to be a working surface and not a flat surface to be measured against.  While clamping your work pieces the material will be flat against the table and will not cause issues with your joint. With this being said, the table should not dip more than 1/4" from the center of the track to the edge of the table.  If it is more than this please either contact us directly or the dealer you purchased it from.
