Kreg Owners' Community

Hi all. I'm new to Kreg products. I'm building workbenches and tables and having difficult time keeping 2x4 frames in square. Seems when I tighten down screws in pocket holes things get slightly out of square.

are you gluing and screwing. If so, use clamps to bring back into square. When glue dries, remove clamps.

Kreg Jigs are very reliant on mating material that have nice square cuts. Putting a nice fresh cut on the ends of boards is always a good idea. Many boards from home stores or lumberyards may look good on the ends but a few degrees of angle on the ends can definitely throw a box out of square. Also make sure your Miter saw is cutting a true 90 degrees from its fence. Good luck

Appreciate that feedback Ryan. I'll give it a try.
Thank you as well Michael. I will try to glue and clamp and see how that works.

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…
