Kreg Owners' Community

   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?

It's only a good deal if you think it's a good deal.

Replacing existing slides but cannot remove drawer front

The Kreg slides are made to work with new drawers before putting on the drawer front. In my situation, I cannot remove the existing fronts which means when reversing the jig to hold the draw, it’s at an angle. Not sure what I should do to make them…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…
