Greetings. I am a novice woodworker and yesterday bought a Kreg K4 kit and already built a table with it for a miter saw also purchased yesterday. I also bought several packs of Kreg screws and expect I will be getting some of your clamps in the near future.
I think it is a great product but there is one thing I am not happy about. The box says "BONUS 5 DIY Project Plans Included" and there is a picture of a stack of graphical plans" No plans were included in the kit. I have seen in Youtube videos nicely printed plans and this is what I was expecting to receive in the kit. I would have already started on my workbench by now. I realize plans are available for download but only after account approval (my account was approved today).
Was my kit supposed to include hard copy plans? If so then I am hoping a set can be dropped in the mail. Perhaps the policy has changed since packaging was designed because the graphic on the box *really* suggests there are printed project plans inside. Aside from this one gripe, a really cool product which I look forward to using for many years.
I posted a chart that shows jig setting and screw size to join boards of different thicknesses ! It is a copy I made off the kreg site and can not find the link it was on , could you tell us where o find that link , thanks , JIM
Greetings: I showed a picture of a desk in Woodsmith to my mentor in our wood working club, and said to him I going to build this desk. and He said to me, cool just pocket hole it. Well It had mortise and tenon, dados, rabbets, groves. etc. In short, I started over four times building the desk. Well the last time I broke out my pocket hole jig. My wife loves the Desk. I'll put a picture on photo section later.
Thank you for the welcome. I am quite intrigued with the Kreg Table. I have one of the first Kreg Jigs, and have built many things with it. I currently work for Lowes and we sell the Kreg products and I have recommended it to many beginners.
I do claim some expertise regarding woodworking tooling, having been a sales rep for Leitz Tooling Systems. I provided new tooling and custom tooling for many kinds of machines for cabinet and furniture shops. There is a comment by someone about a better cutting saw blade for 7-1/4" skill saws doing rip cuts. You might check out the Japanese blades and especially Tenryu (who was/is the provider of Porter Cable Rip Tide series), also Festool who makes a plunge skill saw. About 13-14 years ago, I had the saw service that I worked for make (2) 7-1/4" Laminate-Veneer blades for me. They had a higher tooth count, ATB teeth with Negative Hook angle, and 30 degree top grind. You could also have Alternate Face grind. This would give high quality cross cuts and rips of nice plywood.
I have also been a sales rep for Richelieu Hardware, a wholesaler to the cabinet and furniture industry. I would welcome questions. I am just getting used to this site and how it works.
