"I have the K5 and very happy with it. I built a box and mounted it on top of the box with a drawer underneath to store the Kreg clamps etc. Very handy, when I need to do pocket hole joinery I just get out the box set it on the bench and get…"

"I personally prefer the clamp on the front side, as in a K3 & K5. The K4 has the clamping lever on the back side---difficult to ready access when working with larger panels. I prefer the adjustable clamping pressure that can be achieved on the…"

"If I was just starting, I would get the K5. As mentioned, it's more "flexible" than the earlier jigs. I'm still using my K2000 jig. No vacuum port but it still works very well and I will continue to use until it falls apart. "

"I didn't realize there was a K3 MS.  I've never seen one.   I like the K5MS because the vacuum port swivels and the front operating lever.  The storage is a bonus.  Unfortunately, I have the K4 MS - Fixed port and lever…"

Which jig do you prefer ?

I recently purchased my first bench top jig. I found a new K3 master system for $100.  I really like the front clamping lever and it was much less $ than the K5 system. Other than the storage compartments and the "quick change" clamping, is there much difference between the two ?  So....which do you prefer, K3, K4, or K5 ?See More
