No the best way is to get a White Crayon....    it's not messy... very fast and cheap...  and water proof...  I posted how to do it exactly with pictures.

give it a try.

I agree with Don: I have tried the White out but it doesn't last long. A good epoxy ink will. I like the scribing but I want them inked in as well.

HI Don

Try using some "White Out" correcting fluid. Dab it on the markings and wipe off the extra and let it dry

What I would like to see is the measurement markings on the jig made a contrasting color so they are easier to see.

From the last page... Here's the technique I would suggest!
1) Mix equal parts flour and water (2-3 tablespoons should be adequate) into a paste.
2) Carefully rub the paste into the Kreg Jig® markings with your finger.
3) Wipe away the excess paste with a very lightly dampened cloth.
4) The paste mixture will harden over time. Repeat if necessary.

This paste turns into sort of a glue... and really sticks well. It doesn't flake-out like white-out might be prone to doing.
I'd like to see a search feature on the site. Specifically I was looking for instructions for using the pocket hole jig to join mitered corners.
I keep watching the imfomercial whenever I am up late. Keeps me motivated.
How do I reduce the length of the plug extending out of the pocket hole?
Kreg customer service link from your site is dead!  please will you update this?

Fixed. Thank you.


I have put several projects on the Kreg site that I designed and built.  I have a lot of people asking about plans.  I do not see a way to add plans that your willing to share.  That would be a great option for both designers and builders.

Good idea! Right now, the best way would probably be to attach your plan as a document to your forum posts... It might be a good idea to make this a core part of the community in the future. I will try and gauge interest going forward.

The recent "Selecting the Correct Screw" PDF is excellent thank you! and is now laminated and on my workshop wall....but....How about adding the coarse/fine thread type for hardwood/softwood types? I can never remember and have it scribbled on the printout.

Also add beech to the hardwood list of screw types recommendation? Here > http://www.kregtool.com/PocketHole-Screws-and-Plugs-Prodlist.html

And what IS that white pen used on the edge joining video, looks very useful!! 

I have created a PDF document on a die-case model car display case build.  I have had a couple of people interested in getting information on making one from my plans.  Is there any way I can attach the pdf file to an existing project or create a new one that I can attach the pdf file to?  TIA

I'd like to see ''acme'' threads in the Kreg clamps.

Some Kreg clamp users are experiencing problems, with threads stripping.

I'd like to see the Kreg Company stand by their merchandise.  There was a post today about a kreg clamp threads stripping and kreg having no warranty on the clamps, what's up with that.

How about some type of simple, almost fool proof tongue and groove tool or dovetail jig that is easy to setup and use.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

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…
