Perfect customer service


Wow x two=WOW!!  First, you responded to my initial email to "Customer Service/Contact us" on your website in less than 24 hours.  My request was for a replacement container for your Self-Tapping Pocket-Screw Kit, ITEM# SKO3.  I had my kit for less than four months and the latches broke.  In your prompt response, you said you had…

Supermax 19-38 Drum Sander

I received the SuperMax 19-38 "open end" drum sander about 3 weeks ago before starting my latest kitchen.  I ordered it through Acme Tools, shipping was great, machine was packaged very well and arrived on time.  I have not used the Jet/Performax sanders, but have seen them in local stores, this machine by far surpasses them in size and how it's machined.  This unit is extremely heavy and impressive.  I was a little leary in the 1 3/4 hp motor and how it would handle larger jobs, but it…

New Plastic Screw Boxes - Suggestion

The new plastic screw boxes are great.  Wanted to make a suggestion to allow easy labeling when reusing.  Perhaps you could make the original label like those you find on some other products (medicine bottles for example) where the top layer peels away and then there are instructions underneath, but in this case would leave you with a plain white label underneath to write on.

May not be possible and I know increased cost of label for you, but just a thought when was trying to…

Automaxx® Face Clamp

These pads should be switched. The articulating handle feels more ergonomic in the fingers while squeezing it and flicking it back open. To use it with the jig you need to use your thumb to squeeze and that tired my hand out after a dozen holes. I still needed to use two hands.

Drill Bits for Glass - Carbide Tip tricks

It doesn't matter what brand you buy, they all work in a similar fashion.

Carbide Tip Glass and Tile Cutting Drill Bit Sets are cheaper to purchase than Diamond tipped circular types.

To be honest all you have to be is patient (after a few mistakes, running water is not a bad idea if you can manage it) otherwise pay attention to the glass or tile you are intending to cut into and where you intend to drill.  Try to see if…

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


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.
