Hi. My name is howard. I live with my wife in North western pa. I work in maintenance in a fiberglass factory. I like working with my hands. Ever since I got my kregg jig my wife and my sister always want something built. My jig has payed for itself time and again. I didn't realize that there was a community like this or I would of joined a long time ago. Well anyway that's me in a nutshell so thanks for having me and I look forward to many discussions.
Hi. My name is Candace. My dad is a retired carpenter. He has some short-term memory issues and we've been working together with him my husband and myself to come up with ideas and projects that we can do together. We seen so many on Pinterest and a few that you've posted and thought what a great idea. Would love to makeThe outdoor seating area with my dad. It's always nice to find a site with people that have common interests.

Hello, My name is Raul and I live in small city in the Santa Catarina State - Brazil, I'm looking forward to learning more about the Kreg Jig and on improving my very basic skills. I bought the Kreg Jig K4 Master System last week and received today, I intend to use as soon as possible, however I need to buy wood for my first test and here we do not have stores like in the United States where there is almost everything.

See you!

Hi everyone, I have just joined here today and I look forward to getting ideas and have chats. As you can see I am from London so please bear with me as there is bound to be terminology differences. Looking forward to my first project using the Kreg jig, it will be a workbench for sure

Thank you

Terminology difference? What terminology difference?  'Oh shit' is universal isn't it?  Good luck with your projects!  I'm taking some time off due to tennis elbow from changing the hose on my dust extractor one too many times.  'Oh Shit'......

The correct temminology in this case would be a bar of soap and a wash cloth or a scrub with a big tooth brush.

Hi Ravinder Matharu.  There is nothing with your post that is un-proper and my comment was not made towards you.  Your post is appreciated and you are welcomed to the community and I look forward to seeing your work. 

My comment is directed to the reply made back to you.  It is the use of the 4 lettered word of which has no place in woodworking and is made in print in a mixed group of community members.  I have been here as a member for long time and this it the first time that I have seen this word used in the commuity and I for one do not want to see the language of the community to change to be one of which language that not appreciated to be used.  If this is excepted then the use of the other four lettered words (- ie- the one that begins  with the letter "F" ) will become the next language that will appear in print on here.

Jay, you need to get a sense of humour - the 'shit' word was not directed at anyone and I purposefully did not use the 'F' word.  OMG - this is the most feedback I've received on any of my posts including the picture I posted of my marvelous creation - my miter saw table!!!

We're all adults here and a one shit word is really no big deal. And yes it dose have a place in woodworking. In fact I've been wooing in the field for 20 years and like to have a dime for the amount of times I said shit. I'd have retired by now. Grow up.

John It is true that are all supposed to be adults here however there are minors who visit this page and the use of such words is totally out of context with woodworking.  It only takes one time for this type of language to become expectable thing here on this community.  My point is that if you wish to use that type of language then that is your business but it does not belong in a print where some do not appreciate it.  It may not offend you and it does not offend me but I am looking at the fact that many may not like it and yet is more or less pushed on them.  It does nothing to explain anything on here and is not exceptable in everyone's vocabulary.  If we are respectful adults we should understand this.  So your comment telling me to grow up, well maybe you should apply that comment to your self.  Working in the field of woodworking does not mean that it needs to be used like I have pointed out.  I too have been in the business for better that 20 years and so far I have yet found a need to use foul language to the total world that reads this, to explain something that is  pertaining to woodworking.    So you think that one time is no big deal well now with you printing  it twice, that makes it used 4 times.   So when is the number going to be a big deal and what words will become big deals to you.  What it does is make it expectable and makes the use of vulgarity a common thing and sets an example until you see vulgarity on a regular basis. If we are adults we should set and an example and find other words that are not offensive to others.

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…
