Kreg Owners' Community

Hi all I am kind of new to the forum. Though I have been a kreg owner for more years than I can recall. As a CSS  (Complete Set Syndrome) sufferer I have obvious;ly got one of everything kreg make ( in my price bracket). LOL.  after years of waiting I am now retiring and finally getting my own workshop (YAY). I am cladding the workshop in hardwood ply 0.5 inch and looking at using French cleats for the storage system as ever these days there is simply to many posts nd YouTube on the subject yet they all seem recalcitrant to share simple details such a dimensions I am going to use 3/4 ply for the cleats I just wondered if any of you guys could suggest the width of the cleats I need to cut and the optimum spacing between them. Any shared experience welcome. Eg. Close together or further part and use spacer blocks and what distance to set them apart.. i have a 22’ x 8’ wall  set aside for storage. Any advice welcome. 

thanks in advance

Hello. A fairly easy way to cut the cleats can be to cut 45 degree meters down the length of a 5 or 6 inch wide board on each side. Cut that board in half. Gently or slightly round over the edge to prevent binding. How far apart to put the cleats depends on the size of the boxes you intend to use or build. Maybe as a start go no closer than 6 inches between rows, no further than 12 inches. The cleats mounted to the wall should not be on spacer blocks but should be fastened to studs if possible. Hope this helps.

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
