"Agree with you Jay, drill most pf my holes with an electric drill and had only broke one in the past five years  and kreg replaced it right away !!"

"Well here we go again the speed of an standard drill motor should not break a bit.  These bits that made are not the quality of what they once were.  If the bit is going to break because of speed then it is going to do so after it heats up…"

"I don't think because they are made in China would be the issue.  I had one break once and I noticed my drill was set to speed 5 not 24 (accidentally changed it) and that caused the bit to break. Could be worth checking the speed setting…"

"I'm on my 3rd drill bit and I'm still working on my first project. The first bit split in the middle and the second bit the tip broke off. I looked and see they are made in China which is why they keep breaking. I spent 45 minutes at HD…"

Kreg Tool Box Survey Rant

  For a company that designs/makes really great tools why can't Kreg figure out a good tool storage box/system. From the recent survey of the new tool box options it is evident they have no idea where everyone else in the industry is going with tool storage. The boxes with curves and odd ball sizes are a real PIA to store and waste of time and material to make. They will be shortly be found in the trash bin along with the current junk Kreg plastic grey boxes.   Kreg should take a lesson from…See More

"One more note/comment: The deck screw driver bit is different than the standard square drive Kreg bit. Instead of a square drive it appears to be a mini star drive bit. The add for the 500 screw deck pack said a bit would be enclosed but there was…"

800 Screws later

Just finished  my first deck using the Kreg Deck Jig. It was a 12' X 16' built using 5/4" salt treated decking. It takes longer than face screwing the decking but it was well worth the extra effort in appearance. Sorry no pictures since camera is not currently functioning. Comments and suggestions.1. I normally use a stand up auto feed deck screw drill, you have to get down on the deck with this system. Start with using knee pads and gloves. A fan and canopy is optional for hot sunny summer…See More
