Kreg Owners' Community

Well, I finally got it-my brand new K5. Was able to swing it because I got an unexpected (actually forgotten) rebate from Azek Decking for the decking material I purchased back in Sept. I let my buddy who helped me apply for the rebate with the stipulation that I would get $120.00 of it. Totally forgot about it till he came into my office and laid down the 20's on my desk. Belated Christmas gift I guess. Well since I didn't have it two days ago but now I did it made my decision easy-add my own 40.00 or so(damn IL taxes)and I become the brand new owner of the K5! Yippee.  Since my wife gifted me with the HD for my birthday in Nov and I had picked up by accident( by accident I mean your bidding on a box of tools cause you want the Dremel tool and find out that there is a Kreg jig in the bottom buried) a mini and a K2000 at various auctions last summer I got a pretty good set going.

My question is, do you guys that have it mounted to a board have any pics of what your setup looks like?  If you do, I would appreciate seeing those pics.  Wanna get going in earnest soon.  Or do you just use it as is?

I've been using my Adaptive Cutting System table for a few years now, and it's been really solid. This past week was the first time I ever needed to use the miter guide though.I was rebuilding some shelving in a tiny closet and I discovered the…Continue

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…
