Kreg K5. Clamp broke after two weeks

I've been using the R3 for four years and decided couple of weeks ago to upgrade to K5 system. Today the clamp won't clamp anymore. The handle just won't move to clamp the wood in place. Anybody else…Continue

"There is a black "BB" in the clamp that provides the pressure for the clamp and fails by coming apart. Major flaw in my opinion. Probably some cheap synthetic out of China. I'm assuming that the petroleum based lubricant that I used…"

I am having issues cutting cedar plugs, they are too loose, too short and rough. When I read the online advice and forums they suggested using a higher speed drill. I went and got a corded drill to get better speed to cut smoother plugs. I thought…Continue

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.
