Kreg Owners' Community

I'm having trouble getting my pocket holes deep enough. I'm using the kreg j4 system and using 3/4" stock 1 1/2" wide. I have set my jig to 3/4" high for the stock and set my drill bit to 3/4" to the tip. I'm pretty new at using this and I thought I was using it correctly but can't seem to find any instructional videos on it and I'm not sure what happened to my manual. I am also using 1 1/4" coarse screws and they will not go all the way into the pocket hole. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

You need you set the length of your drill bit to the shoulder of the bit, not the tip.

look in the instructions on your K4 system, it will show you in a picture, you can also go online to view a Kreg Skill Builder video.

Lay a nickel on the base & drop your bit into the guide set at 3/4". Tighten the lock collar & drill away.

Miter Saw Recommendation

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…
