Hey there, my name is Nlrwilson. Retired teacher. I taught computer-graphics, fine arts, and art history. In a wheelchair most of the time or using a cane. My shop has lots of stools, short and tall around my shop. I'll upload pics if you guys are doing that. I don't talk or message much.
Hey Todd, welcome all I can say is open it up and have at it!

Gentlemen, you should NEVER post personal info like phone numbers on the internet! Now have you tried looking at Kreg.com's website for getting wht you need. They sell it at their website as well as make it. Also, try Amazon.com and look for Kreg Tools. It can be shipped to you as far as I know. If that doesn't work, try looking at whatever larger home improvement stores you have. Good luck!

My name is Jerry and I have very basic woodworking skills even tho I have all the basic tools like table saw, router, small band saw,miter saw,12"planer,6"joiner that I have got over a 5 year period. I got my kreg jig about 2 months ago and I really like it. I built the plant stand using only the kreg jig for my first project it was so easy to use I built a book case.

Great work Jerry, thanks for sharing!

Hahahahaa.... thanks for the reminder... They do not carry it at any Home Depot, or other store that i have been to in Mexico. Second, the one distributor that Kreg lists in Mexico DOES NOT CARRY IT EITHER.. and they are in the very north of the country anyway. Amazon can ship it, but the shipping would cost almost as much as the jig itself costs, and with Mexican customs, it might not get through anyway. So, I posted my number because I am not worried about security. Anyone who wishes to contact me may, but be warned, it could be very expensive for you!!!! So, anyone in Mexico City that has any ideas for me, please let me know- otherwise, i'll just have to buy one next time I'm in the states!!!!!

I wish you the best of luck in finding one Robert. But wouldn't it still be cheaper (if it would get through customs) to have it shipped than come all the way to the states to get one? And then how would you get it through airport security?

Well, i am from the states, and the holidays are coming up. So, I'll be going soon enough anyhow. And if the jig is in my check in bags (as opposed to my carry on bags) there won't be any problem. the biggest problem is the carry on luggage!!!!!! of course, finding it in mexico means I can start building things earlier than waiting for the end of the year!!!!!

Good luck again. I can't imagine building anything without mine. I am asking for a bigger set for Christmas!

Hi Folks.
I'm new to Kreg. Just discovered the K3 master system when I was over in the USA last week. Bought myself the kit plus a big box of screws. I'm a hobbyist who makes small items of furniture .... you can check out some of my bits at

http://shedprojects.blogspot.com/2010/04/chest-is-now-complete.html

I relly hope I will pick up some great tips here on the forum. Looking foward to saying 'goodbye' to dowells tennons and buscuits. If you have any questions about my builds please ask away.
Thanks and good luck. Graeme
Hi my name is Bill, and I live in Riverview, FL, just outside of Tampa. I have my shop in my 3 car garage and have just started to get involved in woodworking now that I am retired.

I am a beginning woodworker and made 3 36"x42"x16" cabinets with raised panel doors for my first project using the Kreg jig system I purchased and it went together extremely quick.

I want to make some cherry cabinets for my home and enjoyed the cherry book case shown on site.

Yesterday, I received an email wanting my opinion on Kreg adding high end workbenches to their product line and wanted to know before I clicked the link if this is a legitimate survey or some phishing scam. Here's the link I was provided (…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…
