So i cant figure out how its properly used it must be a earlier version if any body has the earlier one like this Id like to give you a call and ask about this type .tnx keith
Hello my names Keith Walker I live in Southern Ky,I am retired from working as a car and light truck Mechanic for over thirty yrs,I have always had an interest in working with wood.and have a few tools but nothing very good ,look foward to chating with others and reading others projects tnx agn.
I think you will really enjoy having the pocket hole jig. There are so many applications you can use it on, although so far I have only used it on joining frame members (pieces perpendicular to each other) myself but hope to have other types of projects to use it on.

Thanks KregRep for the warm welcome. My name is Rod and i live in South Australia, Australia. We went to a woodwork show in Adelaide last weekend where i saw a Kreg jig being used, and I thought that little pocket hole jig was just what I was loking for, so I bought one.I have given it a test run and I am impressed. I have only been doing woodwork for about 6 months and have so far had a lot of fun doing projects, including chalk boards for kids, model display boxes made from recycle timber' toy boxes, ect This Kreg jig is a very handy item, and I can see it being used a lot.
Check the Kreg Tool website. They have a listing of stores in your area that carry their products.

My name is Charles, and my wife gave me a Kreg Jig for my birthday/Father's Day. She knew I had been wanting one for a long time, and ultimately found it here at our Lowe's store. I like to make furniture in my spare time for gifts. I have made so many items for my two grown sons that they say if a tornado comes, they hope they have time to get the homemade furniture out safely! I hope someone can help me find the fine screws for small boards. I know they make them because they came with my tool, but no one around my home seems to sell them. Any help will be appreciated.

Hello -

My name is James DuHamel, and I live in Southeast Texas. I have been involved with woodworking/construction in some sort of fashion almost my whole life. I am currently working in the refining industry, and have not had a lot of opportunity to do woodworking for the last few years. I am getting back into things at a slow pace, but the need to get back into it hard and heavy is fast approaching (home repairs, etc...)
I've had my Kreg jig for a long time (it's solid metal, not plastic if that gives you an idea), and I have used it for a lot of interesting projects. I look forward to seeing how some of the rest of the world uses theirs, and getting some great tips on woodworking.
Hello from another new member - I am Bill, from Cary, NC. I used to spend time in the workshop my father had, but after moving away from home I haven't had a decent place to work. Finally, I have a garage which can be transformed into a workshop, and have really enjoyed it. I bought a Kreg jig about 3 years ago, and use it often. Pocket screws are great for pulling together table tops, for assembling the inside framework of a chest of drawers, for attaching face frames, etc. I have just finished up a bedroom suite which includes a king bed, 2 bedside tables and 2 chests of drawers. I have a few pictures up, and frankly I am still amazed at how nicely it turned out. I have been enjoying working with quarter sawn oak, which can have some amazing grain patterns, is very stable, and finishes up quite nicely.
My latest Kreg acquisition is a band saw fence, which I just received as a gift. Now, I have to find a few projects to make use of it . . . .
I am from Camden, SC, and I appreciate your help in finding the small screws I am looking for.

Thanks for the info, George. I will certainly try EBay.
My name is Allen, I live in Galena, KS and I've been in cabinet & hobby work for over 40 years. I had heard of pocket joints for years but never really took them serious until last year when I bought a Kreg jig to do my bathroom cabinets & now I'm hooked. I joined to see what everyone else was doing with the Kreg jigs.
I'm Geoff, i'm in Prince George, BC Canada. At best, i'm a hack woodworker, but I just completed my first projects (a dresser/change table and a pair of 4ft long floating shelves) with my newly purchased Kreg Jig. It made the job so much easier than i though it would be.

Cheers
Geoff, can you post pics of the dresser? What other tools did you use?

I'm curious as I have committed to building a new chest of drawers/dresser for my son and I don't have a table saw or a router or a biscuit joiner, etc. I have a Kreg Pocker Jig, a circular saw, a jig saw, a drill, and a sander (the crappy back and forth kind), plus hammers, screwdrivers, chisels, etc.

Hi Michael, I'll see if i can post some pics. My "power" tool list included, the following: Kreg Jig Master Kit, Drill, Circular Saw, Table Saw, Sliding compound mitre saw (you could easily use the circular saw if you didn't have these, they're just quicker) and an orbital sander

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…
