Hi KregCS, Wondering if the Kreg Jig would be able to secure 2 pine crates together that Home depot sells, the outer edges only.

I have lost the brass locking bolt how can I get a new one

I wish I would have known before purchasing what I did that the Bench Klamp would not work with the Mini-Trak.I dont think I saw anything in the description stating that. I would have considered buying the larger Trak instead or another accessory in place of the Bench Klamp that would be compatible.

Oh, and yes. I was referring to the blue support/stop that came with my jig. Thanks!
At 6:40pm on August 25, 2010, Thaddeus Webster said…
Sorry about the ambiguity. The crescents that I was referring to seem to be cuts into the anodized aluminum made by the drill bit or chuck that made the fastening holes in the bottom of the Trak. I can send a pic if you need one. Thanks for your quick response!
