Kreg Owners' Community

Myself and a friend have recently started using our kreg jigs and run into a similar problem.  Both of us are having difficulty getting a tight joint with gluing it. As far as we can tell, we have set everything up right and are using the correct screws for the wood we are using. The joints just are not tight unless we use glue.


We would greatly appreciate any assistance that you can provide to help us get on the right track.


Thank you

Correction, it should have read " without gluing it."
What kind of material? What kind of joint; edge, butt, etc?
Well Gray are you using any bar clamps and Kreg has a clamp made for joints Ive got one and for the glue as the old guys here say little is more ? and use a clamp or two too keep anything from moveing as you put the scrow in. But I use alote of oak. Im getting ready to put a 7 draw drasser and a night stand and I will take some pic's of hal I do it but today I GOT TO SAND thats like doing the dishs for the old lady.
This is the way I do it but each there own way

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.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…
