the best thing since sliced bread

Hi everyone,

My name is Joe. I purchased my first Kreg Jig, the K4. I'll tell ya, it's the best thing since sliced bread. I built my laundry room cabinets with this jig and man it was great. As long as your cuts are straight you get perfect tight joints that you can even see in some cases. It feels good drilling the hole knowing you're going to get perfect joints and you want to keep building everything. Lol. I just laminated my counter top and added a piece to make my L shape. Tight…

DeWalt DW618PK Router

My old (circa 1982) Craftsman 1.25 HP router would not hold a large (3/4" straight @ 1/8" depth) bit securely so I did some homework and picked up the DeWalt DW618PK router. The DW618 is a 2.25 HP variable speed router with 1/2" collet.  The PK indicates that it comes with both a fixed base and a plunge base and a nice soft case to carry everything. 

My  first use was cutting some 3/4" dadoes in a work bench top to install some T-track. I was able to set the depth stop on the plunge…

Rip-Cut Saw Guide

I just bought the saw guide and watched a few YouTube videos.

I started using it and it is a great tool. It was easy to set up with my DeWalt saw.

I am planning on building some cabinets and am going to use the Rip-Cut jig.

And of course the trusty pocket-hole jig too.

Foreman DB210

I've had a K4 for a couple of years, and immediately wanted the Foreman when I saw the release info for it. I was fortunate enough to be in a position to buy it a few weeks ago, and I love it. We are helping a nephew build a kitchen island, and doing his cabinets took so much less time using this machine. The last time we made a few cabinets at once we used the K4, and while it did a nice job, this is so much better. I used to have to take a break after drilling a bunch of holes but not… Continue

Kreg Universal Workbench 28" x 20"

Just finished assembling my new Kreg Universal Workbench with casters.  Great quality and gotta love that blue!  Easy assembly using a 1/2" socket wrench with extension.  Planning to use it as a mobile miter saw stand so now I have to figure out what kind of top and how to attach raised wings to support the material being cut.

Kreg Foreman DB210

So we ordered the tool and it was delivered four days later.  My husband put it together on Thursday and we used it this morning.  We have cut so many pocket holes I can't count.  We have about 120 boards cut and ready for our patio chairs and this is what I have been doing.  Four pocket holes per board with two on each end and will go back to put a single hole on the long section in all of the boards.  Some boards(7) only had two holes on one end, these are the feet to the chairs which…

Kreg Jig® HD

First off I am not a woodworker just a homeowner with limited DIY skill.

So far it's helped build a workbench and heavy duty shelf in the garage.

What has impressed me the most is the strength of the joints.

The workbench has been made out left over materials and scrap but it's really strong.

The system is easy to use just read the instructions grab a couple of scrap pieces of work and you will understand it in less than 30mins.

I'm really happy with it I have nearly…

Improvement Suggestion for the Kreg Right-Angle Clamp

Hi there.

I've bout the Kreg Right-Angle Clamp about two months ago and thought to give my two cents take of it for a change. I strongly suggest to make the pin side of the clamp a bit thinner. My problem is that with the standard drill bit that come with the Kreg 5 Jig it is a bit too think and Especially with soft wood (but not only) it tend to rip the hole, now I've just ordered the Mini jig attachment and absolutely sure it will basically be…

Happy with my new K5 but not with the Multi-Mark.

I'm an amateur/beginner woodworker. and just in the process of acquiring tools.  I've just got the K5 and stated working with it and so far so good. I'd like to see 1/2" size screws and matching size in the sizing jig, for thinner boards. as improvement, but other then that I am very happy with it in contrary to the Multi-Mark Measuring tool. which has nice concept but unfortunately I like many others complain about the tool not being tight when measuring 90 degrees, and it has a few…

Lousy Bits

I have two screw driver bits.  One I got with my Kreg Jr and the head is too small for the screws. It constantly slips and rounds out the head  The other I got with the K5 and it is warped.  I ended up buying some replacements(not Kreg) at our local hardware store and they work perfect.  Has anybody else had problems with their bits or did I just get unlucky?

European Hinges

I'm new to this community and I'm new to carpentry in general. I'm going to make a few cabinet doors and I'm planning to use the European hinges. My dilemma is there are so many brands and styles that I am clueless as to which one to buy. I realize that the decision is partially based on what the inside of the cabinet looks like so I need to make sure I buy the correct ones. I am mainly interested in the adjustable hinge because apparently you can make it perfect even if you are a tiny…

Micro Jig Tappering Jig

Kreg Members;

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…
