Kreg Precision Beaded Face Frame System

I have been looking at this system for a couple of years now and been wondering when are Kreg going to release the mark 2 version with a better clamping set up and possibly a better runner slide as I've seen both of these parts of the product criticized. It's been out since 2009 I believe, any news Kreg?

Also, it is impossible to find a dealer in the UK were I live to supply one, and the pricing on Amazon seems pretty high... so the question to Kreg is when are you going to…

Where in the world is the imperial system used!

I live in Australia. I recently purchased a Kreg K4 Jig from our local Australian supplier and was looking forward to using it. On opening the packaging I've discovered that all measurements are in inches. Australia has not officially used this imperial system since 1976. I was bewildered to learn that no metric product is available. My dilemma Is that i use and struggle with this old and ancient system or not use the machine at all.



I am extremely disappointed that although most of… Continue

DeWalt DWP611PK Router

I picked up a cheap $29 Harbor Freight trim router to cut grooves for splines in miter joints.  I was thoroughly disappointed when the 1/8" splines were extremely loose within the grooves.  The grooves ended up measuring .168 inches using a .125" bit.  Since then, I looked at the compact router offerings from Bosch, DeWalt & Porter Cable.

All were 1.25 HP, had 1/4" collets, came in a package that included a plunge base and were highly rated by their users. I chose the DeWalt…

Portable Base

product

I like this portable base a lot, but it has one design flow that I found a little annoying. The 3 mounting holes on the base are not counter sunk to allow mounting screws to be flush with the bottom of the base. Thus when using a jig in the base the jig adjustment are off by the height of the screw head that was used. The jig will not sit flush to the bottom of the base.

Kreg Rip Cut

Since I bought the Rip Cut I have questioned the quality and design of the tool. It took me multiple times to get it calibrated. I then made one rip cut on 3/4" plywood with my 6 1/2" saw. It did not stay square and totally screwed up my wood. Never going to use that again. It should be all aluminum and they need a better way to mount the saw to the sled. No more screws and more secure.

Kreg Jig Jr.

I do love this product, making it easy to build projects for my home. Just started building a book case and hit a snag.

I am using 1/2" material and followed the screw size chart which says the 1" screw and it was too long and came out the other side! I was abruptly disappointed as on my last project I used 3/4" material and it was a breeze.

Anyone had this issue with 1/2" material?

SawStop Professional 3HP/52" rip

Received the SawStop about a week ago and have used it enough that I think I can write a review.  First off, I bought this saw due to the safety aspect, my old saw was a 3HP Shop Fox. 

The things I like about the saw:

-Dust collection is better than my previous saw, the blade is encased in a…

Kreg Screw Survey Request

Just completed the Kreg Screw survey and would like to add a request that the survey did not give me an opportunity to. I want to echo others OC members who've stated they buy from Amazon without issue. Good thing because they have become difficult to find at any convenient brick and mortar location here in…

Kreg HD

I am a long time kreg user and own many products, just purchased the kreg HD for use with some framing.  I received it this weekend and was very disappointed once I opened the package to see the jig was only packaged in cardboard and no case to keep everything together.  What do others use for a case for the HD?  Also, was disappointed the area set for clamps was not the correct size to receive either side of the face clamps that I own.  One side was too small (Jig would fall off) and the…

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.
