Kreg Jig® K5--The most advanced Kreg Jig® yet!
The Kreg Jig® K5 makes it easier than ever before to build it yourself and build it better.
The all-new Kreg Jig® K5 incorporates the best features of every Kreg Jig® that came before with it with a batch of new upgrades that you’ve never seen before.
Those features start with an all-new clamping mechanism that has a front-mounted handle and adjusts to different workpiece thicknesses without tools or adjusting nuts. Adjusting for different thicknesses is accomplished, instead, by simply sliding the clamping mechanism into position, lifting the front-mounted handle, and then pushing it back down. This quickly and easily sets the spring-loaded clamp to hold tight without working loose over time. Resetting for a different thickness only requires repeating the same simple steps. Rubber padding on the clamp face prevents workpiece marring.
Adjusting the K5 is simplified further thanks to a quick-release Drill Guide Block, as well as a new setting block for the drill bit stop collar. In addition to the included standard 3-hole Drill Guide Block, the Kreg Jig® K5 is also fully compatible with the Kreg Micro Pocket™ Drill Guide and Kreg Jig® HD.
The K5 supports long or wide workpieces easily thanks to a pair of removable extension wings that double as storage compartments for drill and driver bits, Kreg screws and plugs, and other K5 accessories. Add in an adjustable workpiece stop, a swiveling dust-collection port, and hex-shank drill and driver bits, and it’s easy to see that the Kreg Jig® K5 truly is the most advanced Kreg Jig® yet.
When you purchase a Kreg Jig® K5 you also get access to SkillBuilder™ videos that teach you how to get the most out of the jig, and you’ll receive exclusive free downloadable project plans so you can start building with the K5 right away.

I just bought the K5 and have used it for a few "practice" projects. Now that I will be starting my first "real" project I noticed what appears to be a "major" typo in the K5 manual. Specifically, there seems to be a typo in the "Kreg Jig Setting" column of the "Screw Selection / Kreg Jig Settings Chart" in the Settings section of the manual. The possible typo is in the 3/4" (19 mm) Material Thickness row of the chart. In that row, it states that Kreg Jig Setting should be "5/8" Mark". Shouldn't the setting be "3/4" Mark"? Looking at all the other rows, this appears to be the appropriate setting, given the arithmetic progression in the "Kreg Jig Setting" column of the chart.
