Does anyone know of an easy way to hold the corners of a small box when using micro-pocket holes? Does Kreg make a right angle clamp for the smaller micro-pocket holes? They should consider making a small right angle clamp for micro pocket assembly.

Vince,

Check out this mini clamp---

perhaps it'll work out for you.

I use them---they keep the corners square---

they can be used inside or outside, and I get good results.

Thank you, Ken.  I checked out the Rockler.com site and I will consider buying the square and a few of their mini-clamps.  I think this will solve the problem.

Vince,

Another option

Obtain a 2nd clamp---

grind the clamp pin diameter down to fit into the smaller size pocket holes.

I have found that a 1/4 drive, 11/32 nut driver socket will slip right over the clamp mandrel. The short 1\ drive shaft will fit nicely in the micro pocket hole and clamp the piece very well. I successfully used the clamps on a 1/2" thick made project. Be sure to look for the socket with the short, straight shaft. Some sockets have a longer shaft that would require shortning of the shaft as it is too long to work.

Good luck on your projects.

Rob

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…
