Hey Kreg folks,

 

I haven't heard much lately about the new shelf pin jig.  Can you give us any info on it such as when it will be available or what it might cost?

I bought my shelf pin jig from rockler about 8 years ago,  what new one is out and how can they improve it?

Michael,

You can see a video of the Kreg shelf pin jig here:

It looks much shorter then the Rockler jig but it also seems more robust.  I was almost bought the Rockler jig the last time they had it on sale but then I saw the one Kreg was coming out with.  I love my other Kreg stuff so much I decided to wait for Kreg's new one to come out.  Back in July (in the video) they said it would be out this fall so I would assume if things are still on scheduled it should be available soon.  

i have a strip of 600mm (2ft) long piece of steel with equidistant 5mm diameter holes. the strip is about 30mm wide. I bought it from the hardware store for about $2. I have used it as a shelf "jig" for about 2 years now and never had a problem! I just clamp it on my workpiece and drill every hole or every other hole depending on how lazy I'm feeling.

I was kinda looking forward to seeing the bench klamp vise come out that they released in the same video. Now I have a project coming up that I will need a shelf pin jig for. Maybe Kregrep could shed a little light on this subject for us?

I guess I'll stick with my homemade jig for my router. One bushing for all sizes of pins, up to 3/4". I'm guessing when Kreg finally does come out with it I bet it will be at least twice what Rocklers costs. I am interested in the bench clamp too though.
I am also very interested in finding out what the cost will be.  If it were 2x the Rockler jig that would be a deal killer for me.  If it was in the $20-$30 range I would be all over it.
give me address I 'll send you 6 sheets of pegboard

First time I really had a need for the ACS miter guide.

I've been using my Adaptive Cutting System table for a few years now, and it's been really solid. This past week was the first time I ever needed to use the miter guide though.I was rebuilding some shelving in a tiny closet and I discovered the…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…
