Kreg Owners' Community

Hello, I just purchased my Kreg Jig. Can some of you experienced users tell me how you mounted your jig? Did you mount it to a bench? Or a piece of plywood or something and then clamp that to a bench? Or is there a better way for storage, mounting and using the jig?

Thanks

That is one great video. I didn't know you cannot purchase a Kreg Jig in the UK. Even so, I can see that the guy really likes the Kreg Jig, which is understandable. Another happy user!

Just to let you know that Kreg products are available in the UK - for example through Axminster Tools in Devon. I purchased my my Kreg jig and router table through them last year

Depends on how much you use it. I just set mine on my workbench and put two pieces of 3/4 inch mdf next to it for support.

Rex,
Great question. One good way to have your Kreg Jig ready at the drop of a hat is to mount the jig (using the 4 screw holes in the base) directly to a small piece of plywood which can be quickly thrown on top of your workbench and clamped down to secure. Some owners will also drill small holes in the plywood to hold their drill bit, driver bit, allen wrench, etc. It's up to you to customize as much as you'd like!

It'd be great to see what some of the owners here have come up with! Post some photos, guys!

Simple. I screwed the clamp to a 2 x 4, drilled a hole in the top to hang it up with, and 4 holes in the end to hold the bits and allen wrench.

i see you and a lot of other people have used kreg mini tracks mounted to slide the support stops to and i was wondering where you purchased them cause they aren't on the kregtool.com website.
thanks! after i posted i found them on woodcraft.
Here's my K3 Setup.

Very nice, Robert!

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…
