Kreg Owners' Community

Hi, I'm Kim. I live north of Dallas, TX & I run a small ranch. Since Kim can be either a male or female name, I suppose I should mention that I am female. My dad taught me some of the rudiments of woodworking 40-50 years ago, but until we bought our ranch, I didn't have much use for that knowledge. I sure have used it since!

I build housing for all the smaller livestock (chickens, turkeys, geese, & goats). I will be building cat trees (I volunteer with an animal rescue group). The first project for the jig will be building a "basket" for collecting eggs - I need a good sturdy basket since I have 100+ laying hens.

We are getting ready to renovate the kitchen, including building all new custom cabinets, which is why I got the new K-5 jig. Once the kitchen is done, the master bath will be the next project (getting rid of the huge useless bathtub and building a nice walk-in closet instead). We will be using the current closet space to expand the kitchen, so a new closet will be a must!

Welcome Kim.  Sounds like you might have more experience than a lot of us here.  I've found that most everyone is helpful and doesn't mind sharing knowledge with projects.  So again, welcome.

AutoMaxx 6" clamp not working

I have been using the Automaxx 6" clamp for two plus years, and recently the clamp is impossible to close the handles to secure the work and my jig. I cannot close the handles no matter how much pressure I can exert. I open the clamp to max to reset…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…
