Kreg Owners' Community

Hi! I just received my first Kreg jigs, the K5 and the HD. I am new to woodworking. I am planning on permanently mounting the K5 with the extension arms on a piece of plywood, so I can clamp the wood to a table to use the jig, but the final design has not been determined.

I'd love to hear (and see!) what you have done or would suggest.

Thanks,
Rosemarie

Hi Rosemarie!

I mounted my K5 on my work bench using one short screw in each wing of the jig. If I need to move it I just pull up the two screws and I have my work space back. The two screws (one in each wing) holds the K5 nice and tight.

Good Morning Rosemarie;

 

If you go to Projects above and click on it then go to the search box just above all projects type in K5 then click on the search or hit enter the first project you see is the mount I did for my K5  this is portable so I can take it to the job or use it anywhere sturdy with the rubber I put on the bottom but also allows the unit to be easily stored out of the way if you have a small shop.i

Randy, I'm sure I can find a few screws to get started. Thanks!

Thanks, Jeff! Nice setup -- you have a lot going on there. And thanks for the searching tip, too. I have NO shop as of now, just the picnic table on the patio. All I need now is some slightly cooler weather!

Good Evening Rosemarie;

 

Sorry my internet was down yesterday, first yes I did use pocket holes and screws to attach the oak banding around the edge in fact just to prove how good they are there is no glue normally I would use glue as well.

The 3\4 inch plywood can really be made any size you want it I wanted it to fit on the top of my Kreg assembly table the total width with the edging is 31 inches and the length from top to bottom is 23 inches you do not need to add the track I just wanted to make some longer position stops.

 

Hope this Helps

Jeff

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

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…
