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

Hi Steve - have you got a page number or anything? I checked my last two issues, November 2010 and Dec/Jan 2010/2011 and couldn't find anything.

issue 203 march 2011 page 28, sorry i didnt reply till now, hope this helps. when i mount mine i think i will use a piece of plywood 10"x30" to mount jig with material supports on each side of jig. for me i dont use material stops. might use a "sink cutout" for my base. a sink cutout is where a sink is cut out of a piece of laminate, nice and smooth and flat, could double as an assembly table.

Thanks steve I found it.
I mounted mine to the far end of my layout table that sits in the middle of my shop. Works great in that location and also allows me to attach the shop vac to it!

Hi Rex,

 

The versitility of this jig is endless. I keep mine in the box I got it in. When I need to use it I just use 2 screws and attach it to any handy useable surface. I have even had it attached to the end of a saw horse. For a surface you will use again, drill through holes and use bolts instead of screws as screw holes will probably strip out over time.

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…
