Kreg Owners' Community

I have the Kreg Jig Jr., and followed the jig settings instructions in the user manual exactly as presented for 3/4" material. It did not work. The pocket holes were too far from the end of the board. I am excited about the possibilities of the Kreg Jig Jr., but how to I make them become a reality?  What may have gone wrong?

The holes do sit back from the end of the board a bit, but when you use the correct size screw it penetrates the board with the pocket holes and goes into the other one and makes a very strong joint. What screw size are you using?


Could you please take a picture of how you have the Kreg Jr set up?

I may be hung up on terminology, "end of the board?" or "edge of the board?" Pic would help.

Kreg junior is a little more technique sensitive than the Master kit as you need to set the little legs correctly and then bias and clamp the jig properly.

Well, I woke up this morning, called the Kreg support hotline, was walked through what I did last night, and it worked beautifully today. I still cannot figure out what I was doing, or did wrong (maybe all I needed was a good nights sleep). Many thanks for all the responses to this post.

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

Miter saw stand

     Has anyone used one of the Kreg Universal Stand configurations as the base for a miter saw workstation with fold down wings?  I scrolled through the pics in the community and all I saw were using a DIY base cabinet.  I have an extra Kreg router…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…
