 I purchased it at a wodworkers show in the early 90's I found it last week I was wondering  was this the first Kreg@ to come out ?  I cannot remember how much I paid but I remember after the demonstration  I knew  I HAD TO HAVE IT !!

I believe the K1 is what you are talking about.... You would think Kreg would display past models in a kind of tribute thing.... Jay has one he posted pix of... cant remember for the life of me what thread it was in, but when he sees this thread, i am sure he will compare notes with you. Sommerfeld tools also makes a all metal pocket hole jig too.... and possibly some others.

You probably have the K2 jig.  I bought one from Amazon.com not more than 5 or 6 years ago.  I don't know if it is discontinued or not but it is the first Kreg jig that I turn to for work with 3/4" stock.  I think it is better built from better material than all the blue plastic jigs though I do use my K2000 for all my 1 1/2" work.

 

 

I have one of the same kreg jigs.I think its a k2. I may be wrong. I have had mine over fifteen years and still works great.Im like you I saw this tool and had to have it. I had a handyman business for twenty years and this tool saved me many hours on the job
hi Guys, It is a great tool isn't it?  I bought mine just after they came out on the market and have used it as my main pocket jig for all these years in a cabinet shop and can't wear it out.  Right after I purchased it, I modify it by adding an air clamp to it that I activate with my left knee making it just as fast as the modified jig that was posted recently with the foot operated clamp. So for all these years I have had a super fast clamp that has never failed me and because of the luck I had with it i found no need to purchase the air operated air drill multihole machines that Kreg Tools put out on the market .  It is a K-2 all aluminum and their second model and the best they made.  I have other Kreg jigs of later versions however my main tool is the K-2.
How s it going Larwyn ? For a while I thought I was the only one with the metal Kreg jig ,and like everything else everything is going to cancer causing plastic ! The metal ones only drawback is it is not adjustable to different  thicknesses.
Frank, if you really need a metal one that is adjustable e-mail me.  salemcode@comcast.net

AutoMaxx 6" clamp not working

I have been using the Automaxx 6" clamp for two plus years, and recently the clamp is impossible to close the handles to secure the work and my jig. I cannot close the handles no matter how much pressure I can exert. I open the clamp to max to reset…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…
