We stopped by our local Lowe's and saw a Kreg Toolboxx Complete System in the Kreg area. It includes the K4 master system, the vac attachment, a work stop, the step and driver bit (both hex shank), a 90 degree clamp, a face clamp, a Kreg Jig Mini, an assortment of 1000 screws & 300 plugs. Plus a handy screw selector chart.
SIt down, because this was all marked down to
$68! What the whaaaaaaaaat????
Literally the deal to end all deals! The master system alone is $99, and the clamps are $20-$30 apiece. It was the last one, so I snapped it up!
Of course I had to try it out when I got home, and promptly drilled two holes through the base because I didn't have the stop collar set right, AND I had the step bit chucked into my impact driver, which i ran at full throttle. OOPS!
Methinks a gentler approach with a more conservative squeeze of the trigger will be in order next time.
My impact driver is the kind that has the little hammer mechanism inside, and I wonder if that extra impact on the shank loosed the stop collar? Any ideas?
I've had a kreg jig jr since it was called something else, and have run into several situations where I wished I had the "big jig". I'm glad I waited, it'll be fun to use this! What good deals have you gotten on tools?
