New Automaxx™ Clamps adjust automatically to hold different material thicknesses —
whether it's thick, thin, or in between — making clamping fast and foolproof!

Automaxx™ Clamps make clamping faster and easier than ever by adjusting the clamp automatically to match the thickness of the material being clamped—whether it’s thick, thin, or in between.

You just set the clamping pressure once using an easy-to-regulate thumbscrew. After that, Automaxx™ Clamps do the rest—locking the clamps closed easily and consistently every time and with every thickness.

Automaxx™ Clamps are available in two styles and sizes to provide fast and foolproof solutions for a wide array of clamping jobs. Automaxx™ Face Clamps take care of handheld clamping needs, while Automaxx™ Bench Klamps work with the Kreg Klamp Plate™ or Klamp Track™ to provide an adjustable bench-mounted clamping station.

AutomaxxFace Clamps:
Automaxx™ Face Clamps are available in two sizes: The Face Clamp (Item# KHC-1410) offers a 3" reach and clamps materials up to 2-7/8" thick. The Large Face Clamp (Item# KHC1420) has a 6"-reach and clamps materials up to 4-1/4" thick.

AutomaxxBench Klamps:
Automaxx™ Bench Klamps come in two different sizes, as well: The Bench Klamp (Item# KKS-1120) offers a 3" reach and clamps materials up to 2-1/2" thick. The Large Bench Klamp (Item# KKS-1140) has a 6" reach and clamps materials up to 4-1/4" thick.

Bench Klamp System:
The Automaxx™ Bench Klamp System (Item# KKS1110) combines a 3"-reach Automaxx™ Bench Klamp with a Kreg Klamp Plate™ that can be mounted into a bench top. This allows you to create an incredibly versatile clamping station that can rotate 360° to hold a variety of materials in almost any position on your bench top.

My UPS man brought me a box from Kreg today.  It included a 6" Automaxx face clamp, which I bought because I just finished a cabinet for my mother-in-law and father-in-law's garage, to enclose their electrical panel.  When assembling the face frame and the plywood panel door, which included an extra rail in the center, it finally dawned on me that while I love my Kreg face clamps, having to tweak the adjustment screw (because let's admit it folks, it moves) is annoying.  So I thought, what the hell -- I'll give one of these new ones a try.  My review is short:  I love you, Kreg.  Thank you thank you thank you thank you.  This is so great -- just clamp it and go.  Fast, easy, simply awesome.  I'll be adding the bench clamps very soon.  But I'd also be interested to know when the Automaxx system will be available in a right angle clamp -- I use my right angle clamps all the time during assembly.  Thanks!

I am working on a endtable and used my 6 inch face frame Automax clamp today and LOVED it. Wish I could trade all my regular clamps in for automax. just clamp and go.

The Kreg slides are made to work with new drawers before putting on the drawer front. In my situation, I cannot remove the existing fronts which means when reversing the jig to hold the draw, it’s at an angle. Not sure what I should do to make them…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…

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…
