Kreg Owners' Community

I have know about the Kreg Jig for years and just recently purchased the Kreg Jig Jr (all that was left at the home center).  I am thinking about picking up some clamps but not sure what ones would be good staters.  I currently use my Irwin bar clamps and they seem to work "ok".  Any suggestions would be great.  I am also thinking about putting a new top on my work-mate if that helps any.  I use it alot for outdoor projects because it comes in handy in the driveway, garage, ect.

The Kreg clamps are good, especially the right angle clamp. I own many clamps of all kinds and feel that it is one of the most important tools in the shop. I was in a hurry to get going with my projects and did not want to wait for shipping (I live in a remote area that does not have stores that carry much of anything. So I bought welding clamps which are basically the same regular Kreg clamp. You can get the various depths in the throat area and the surface area of the clamp face is quite adequate. You can also get a drill press clamp that works like the bench clamp. I mounted mine to a piece of 1 1/4 granite that I had left over from a kitchen remodel. It was great and meets some of my particular needs. It's certainly not as portable as the Kreg jig clamp but I throw it on my work bench, the floor, or on saw horses.

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

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?

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…
