"I check out amazon price it does not include the track but does include shipping . Track price is also less because amazon has the 59 inch track for $50. So the Dewalt is a good price only about $90 difference . "

Gary roofner replied to Jeff Metcalf's discussion 'Triton New Low Price Track Saw'
"If the track is 1500 mm = 150 cm divide 150 by 2.54 cm or about 59 inches. If the ship is $30 approximately $397 - 400 only $40 . However your talking another $100 just for track your $140 ."

Well I pulled out my taper jig the metal one that pivots and has a little aluminum hook on the end it did the job but just barley and not really that safe so I put it away and remembered all the different tapering jigs I had used made or worked with over the years all of which did the job but could of…

K5 Kreg Jig

I'm a long time Kreg Jig owner and have always upgraded when new models come to market I attended a seminar with the Kreg Rep for Canada recently and seen the K5 it was not long afterward that I purchased the K5 I'm very impressed with the features and performance of this new product it has all the features that I or anyone would want.

Thanks Jeff for the kind words!  They are appreciated!  I use the 12" Leigh Super Jig it was easier to use then I had read about.

Jeff I agree with you and have not understood why so many are still buying K4? Can only be price if I did not have a K3 I would have bought the K5. I may still buy I like the auto adjust features.

Jeff, I did not use the HD Jig. Recently I accidentally purchased the HD screws. I didn't realize they were even available until then.  I've since checked my local box store where I bought the screws, but they do not have the jig. I may have to order it direct. It looks like a good piece of equipment to have.

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.
