Kreg Owners' Community

Just thought I would start a discussion on woodworkers real jobs. It would be fun to no if there are lots of professional people using Kreg Jig along with people  like myself a retired  construction worker.

I'm in a small town in Southern Maryland (La Plata). I retired from Verizon on Christmas Eve, 2001. Our old house was destroyed by an F-4 tornado on April 28, 2002. The new house has my dream shop in the basement. My wife and I own a small furniture and craft/decorative painting business called Wood 'n Wings. I've been making sawdust for about 20 years.
I am a past kitchen and bath remolder and now a missionary.
Retired computer geek (Wintel servers for large financial co) Got interested in wood working building props for action pistol competitions. Now I am cutting back on pistol matches to have more time fo woodworking. Like most things these days wish I had started earlier.
I'm a trial lawyer in Wyoming. I've worked wood since I was a junior in high school making speaker enclosures for my rock band. I got away from it while in college and law school but purely by accident stumbled across James Krenov's first book. I've been hooked since - as time allows. I plan to remodel my kitchen next summer with new cabinets and the works.
I do not have a REAL job. Retired, disabled and etc. I live in Mayfield, KY and come from a construction back ground. I have built furniture and odd things all my life, but got away from it trying to work to many hours to get the kids through school and now I have some extra time on my hands to do a little wood working in basement.
I work in our business Carroll' Woodcraft Supplies as the business owner general dogs body.
We advise all the wodies on how to do their projects and sell the bits and peices.
This does not allow us much time to do our own work.
Come on retirement.

AutoMaxx 6" clamp not working

I have been using the Automaxx 6" clamp for two plus years, and recently the clamp is impossible to close the handles to secure the work and my jig. I cannot close the handles no matter how much pressure I can exert. I open the clamp to max to reset…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…
