Kreg Owners' Community


Each year we receive hundreds of emails and letters from Kreg Jig owners letting us know why they love their Kreg Jig!  Starting June 25th, and through the month of July, we will be holding a “My Kreg Jig®” photo contest, and awarding a Year’s Supply* of Kreg Screws along with an assortment of Kreg Hats/Shirts!  If you have a Kreg Jig and a digital camera, this is your chance to win big!  To participate, you must be a member of the Kreg Jig Owners' Community.  If you're not yet, don't worry, it only takes 2 minutes to sign-up!


Details: 

  • Each photo should include both you and your Kreg Jig®.  You can be drilling pocket-holes, standing on it, leaning on it, holding it in your hands… it doesn’t matter, as long as both you and your Kreg Jig® are in the shot. 
  • Entries must be posted as a reply in this forum thread.  
  • Photos should be embedded in the post, not linked to so that they can be seen by simply scrolling down… no extra click required. 
  • Please also include a brief testimonial-type description (a few sentences) of why you like your Kreg Jig®; what it has done for you, how it has changed the way you work, what projects possibilities it has opened up, etc. 
  • All entries must be submitted by July 29th.
  • Results/Winnings will be posted on the Kreg Jig Owners’ Community (KJOC),  August 3rd.  Criteria below. 


Winnings: 

Boy, it sure pays to be a Kreg Jig Owners' Community member!  KregRep will contact all winners through community Private Message at the conclusion of the contest to get your shirt size, mailing address, etc.    

  • Grand Prize:  Your Choice of 10,000 Kreg Screws.  Up to 3 varieties.  Option to substitute 2,000 Stainless Screws
  • First Entrant:  To get things off on the right foot, the first person to post here, meeting the above criteria, will receive a free Kreg Multi-Mark.  Hurry!  Do you have any idea how many other Kreg Jig owners are reading this right now!?!  ;) UPDATE: 'First Entrant' Prize awarded.
  • 10 Random Winners:  10 additional winners will be picked at random, using the tools at random.org.  Winners will receive one Kreg Hat and one Kreg Shirt.  


Judging Criteria: 

The bottom line… is ‘have fun!’  We have to have some criteria to determine the Grand Prize winner, but if your photo isn’t that great, don’t sweat it!  We’re not all professional photographers… any photo with you and your Kreg Jig® will be fine… and remember, you’re just as likely as any other entrant to being one of the 10 random winners.  A small team of Kreg employees – including KregRep – will determine the winning photo.  Criteria for the winning photo is summarized below: 

  • Believability (photo and description) – Does the person actually like the tool/technique?
  • Entertainment Value – How entertaining/humorous/engaging is the photo? The more creative, the better!
  • Photography – How is the lighting?  Can the person/tool be seen clearly?  General photo quality.  


How-To:

Photos should be embedded in a forum post below.  You can find detailed instructions for doing this… here.  Please do not simply 'link' to your photo, embed it if you can so we can all see the post without clicking. If you have any questions about shooting or uploading photos, feel free to ask them in that thread as well.

* In the event of more than 200 photo entries, ’10 Random Winners’ will become ’20 Random Winners!’  Double the number of winners!  Tell your friends, spread the word! 

* "Year's Supply" is based on an internal estimate.  Some woodworkers will use more than 10,000 screws in one year... most will use far less.

* Multiple entries (with unique text and photos) are welcome and will be included in the drawing.

* No Purchase Necessary


*UPDATE: CONTEST WINNERS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED!  A SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL PARTICIPANTS!  YOU ARE ALL WHAT MAKES THIS COMPANY WORK!

Good one! or................Maybe it's time the people put the SCREWS to Washington! Using the Kreg Jig would be the most efficient way!
I just finished building a Teardrop Trailer and used the Kreig Jig to do EVERYTHING!!!! Cabinet rails and stiles, drawers, wall to spar connections, wall to floor connections. I must have used a years worth on screws on this project alone. She's called the BEEHIVE but I'm thing of changing her name to the Kreigster!

I love my kreg Jig tools and accessories! Especially the K3 Masterjig with vacuum attachment, and the quick change kit makes switching from drill bit to screwdriver very handy. I have used pocket-hole joinery in almost all of my projects since receiving my K3 Master system! I find this method not only quick and easy, but it is also very strong! I recently built a bench using 2x4 boards with 2-1/2 Inch, #8 Coarse Pocket Screws. The results was unbelievably strong.

First off, great entries everyone! It's great to hear all of your stories, see your photos, all with a side of entertainment! Great job so far! Anxious to see more posts this month! Remember, your photos don't have to be professional or funny... any photo of you and your Kreg Jig will do!

Also, remember to embed you photo to the post so everyone can see it without clicking on an Attachment link. To do this, you'll want to click this button instead of the "Upload Files" link.

I am on my third generation of Kreg Jigs. I can't begin to tell you how many projects I've made and how many woodworkers I have turned on to the Kreg Jig. They're the best!

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…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…
