Does anybody have a parts list to change the pocket hole rear clamp to pneumatic conversion. I hate having to reach around back to clamp the piece. I bet if Kreg offer a reasonable priced kit it would sell. No I cant afford a Foreman for my home shop.Thanks Michael

Michael, that's a great idea and I may think about converting my K4 to pneumatic.  A small cylinder is available for less than $20, with a 2" stroke, double-acting.  A double-acting foot switch would be the best way to operate it so both hands are free.  A few brackets, hoses, connectors and some ingenuity would complete the job, for about $50 total.  The regulator on the compressor should allow fine-tuning the holding power without damaging the workpiece.  I will post some photos and details if I decide to do it.  Thanks for the idea.

Michael,

I'm sorry to inform you that we do not offer a kit like you are referring to.  I have heard of our customer's doing this but they did not supply us with a list of parts to do so.  If you do decide to do this, please feel free to share the parts list so others can follow suit if they wish.

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
