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.

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…
