K3 problem the threaded insert is lose and will not hold setting. The k4 is worn and  hard to use. I was think maybe epoxy the insert in place may fix it. I tried wood glue did hold. Anyone else had the same problem? The k4 I have thought about doing air cylinder. Just don't like the idea having to hook up air compressor  ever time I use it.  I am think of buy a k4 or k5 . Really would lean toward the k5 but from reviews build quality is not that good. I have had problems with the new self adjusting clamps breaking.

Hi Gary. Sorry to hear you are having trouble. If you contact our team at 800-447-8638 or TechnicalSupport@kregtool.com, they will be happy to help with this!

  I fixed my Problems by upgrading to the K5 jig. I really like the K5 the dust collection works so much better than k3 or k4. They tended to clog up so rarely used dust collection port. I plan on mounting the K5 to a board 

haven't done that yet. I probably will use the old trick learned here of using a Nichol instead of the provided gauge. Also glad the handle is  on front like k3. Like the quick switching from 3/4 to 1 1/2 stock.

K5 Review

I really like the k5 it is faster to change from different size of screws. I hesitated to update because of some of the reviews about the dust collection hook up. That to me one of the improvements it works perfect no dust to cleanup .…
