The versitility of this jig is endless. I keep mine in the box I got it in. When I need to use it I just use 2 screws and attach it to any handy useable surface. I have even had it attached to the end of a saw horse. For a…"
"I confess, I didn't go through all 100+ posts so I apologize if this has already been presented. I mounted the K-3 jig to a piece of 1x3 and used a miter slot clamp block to tie it to the top of the table saw. Work height is right and got…"

"I mounted mine to a piece of 3/4" ply about 10"x16". I added a few "legs" to each side of the board for longer boards. Drill a hole in it and hang it on your wall-o-jigs. Add a small box to keep the bit/s and drillbits in."

"I drilled four pilot holes in my counter top (kitchen countertop) that I have as my work bench surface then screwed the jig down to the bench.I store my jig in its case with all of the accessories and when I want to use it I just use my cordless…"
"Ditto on mounting to plywood.
I used a leftover piece of Oak plywood and added oak trim around the edges. Also add support for pice being drilled.
Mounted to my Dovetail Jig table with large knobs uner to remove if needed.
"I too mounted my Kreg Jig to a larger piece of wood. Additionally, I built some "buttresses" as high as the base of the clamping surface and extending perpendicular to the clamping direction in both directions about 16 inches. …"
Hello Rex, I'm Jay Boutwell, I just replied to your discussion about kreg jig mounting. Looks like we are not that far away from each other. I have several cabinet jobs that I have done over the years in the Hillsboro area. Been building cabinets full time for over 17 years ever since I retired from the sheriff's office here in Salem Oregon.
