Kreg Owners' Community


What happened to the long thread (80 to 90 posts as I recall) about Kreg's decision to discontinue the front-lever K3 jig and revert to the back-lever K4 style?

Every post I read (except KregRep's) was strongly against this change. Too strongly for management perhaps?

It appears to have been censored out of existence!

What happened to the concept of "discussion"?

What lawsuit was that?  I hadn't heard about that being the reason they discontinued the K3.


I really do want to get another one or two, but I don't need all of the extras, just the K3 body and the drill guide.


Kreg was cited for patent infringement so they had to discontinue the K3 style while the lawyers discussed things.  They must have worked it out because they are now selling it again.  Hopefully they will sell the K3 alone, and in kits.

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…

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…
