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 strength than the dock adaptors. The support wings are the same so cheap and flimsy. You CANNOT get the dock adaptors to slide into the jig itself. One just twisted. Obviously there was not any testing of this. I would not purchase a docking…Continue

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 construction but I thought I would give it a try because of the reviews that claim it is quicker and sturdier than conventional joinery. I would disagree for a couple of reasons.
First: I don't feel as if it is quicker at all because it takes…Continue
1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand: "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.
Then I installed it.. perfect fit, leaves just enough room to adjust the setting screw on my K4.
Then the real test, hook up the "shop vac" and start drilling.. I was amazed virtually NO SAWDUST escaped.. this contraption is well worth the "price of admission"
Lesson.. when removing the drill from the "jig", withdraw it slowly while still spinning,. In my…
I picked up the K4MS from Home Depot about 3 months ago, I was looking for a small filing cabinet for under my desk and nothing I looked at would fit or they wanted big money for it, my wife said “why don’t you just build your own then you will get what you need and you will be happy. I was in a lazy mood and thought it would be easier to buy one, that was a dream so I had some old desk parts in storage from when my Son moved and I thought ok let’s build, first thing I did was think I need…Continue

I really like the k5 it is faster to change from different size of screws. I hesitated to update because of some of the reviews about the dust collection hook up. That to me one of the improvements it works perfect no dust to cleanup . That didn't really work on My K3 or K4 it tended to clog !! Just get the 2 1/2 to 1 1/4 adapter. I mounted the connection solid to the board does not fall off. I am including a picture of the setup.…Continue

The Kreg Project Center is great by itself, but 2 KPC's are better than 1 when you want to set up a 12 ft. work station in a couple minutes.…Continue
The first thing I will do is set price aside and focus on the tool and why I bought the Domino.
I have orders for a few dining tables and chairs. I have made one prototype chair, while I have all the tools to make angled tenons etc., the time it takes me is ungodly. Having made quite a few farmhouse tables and benches for clients, it only seemed like good business to offer chairs vs. buying unfinished chairs to finish to match, but in order to make money I need to be…Continue
I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
The only complaints that I have seen is that the base is molded plastic, but at a $400 price-point ($360 with a coupon from Acme), it's $700 cheaper than any other pocket hole machine you can find.
Dust collection when hooked to a Vac is…Continue

As a Kreg Jig Owner for many years now; I still really appreciate seeing books that are for weekend woodworkers(like me) with basic plans and tools to build pocket hole projects. …Continue

I just picked up my new Kreg Mobile Project Center Item #KWS1000.
Wow! I set it up in my basement and it is great addition to my Kreg items. I was viewing a video where a review on this fine product was being made, which prompts my question to Kreg, and here it is.
Are plans in progress to make a 90-degree Clamp to fit the Mobile Project Center, ie: a larger disc on the Clamp, in order to slide into the under-table track? If such a Clamp is made for this…Continue
Takes 10 minutes to make this handy accessory for your Kreg gear! Home made plug pusher.
I decided that it was time to upgrade my bench-top bandsaw after almost burning it up trying to resaw a chunk of 3 inch wide walnut. After doing a bunch of research, and receiving my wife's blessing, I decided on a Laguna 14-12. I spoke with one of the guys at a local retailer, and highlighted some of the features on the 14BX. After speaking briefly with my wife, she approved the extra cost (about $300 more). The 14BX had the added advantage of being in stock, whereas I would have had to…Continue
I believe Kreg mobile project center is a great product. Best saw horse , clamping table. and mobile workbench. I made these handles makes it easier to carry.IMG_0512a.jpg
I setup my new drill press this weekend and the first thing I tried out was a spade bit. Unfortunately the lead point was like a screw and pulled the piece right out of my hands and off the table. I started looking for drill press clamps and came across these. Luckily my table came with t track grooves which let me use these babies.
I already had a mag fence so with that and these clamps, nothing was moving. …Continue

I received the SuperMax 19-38 "open end" drum sander about 3 weeks ago before starting my latest kitchen. I ordered it through Acme Tools, shipping was great, machine was packaged very well and arrived on time. I have not used the Jet/Performax sanders, but have seen them in local stores, this machine by far surpasses them in size and how it's machined. This unit is extremely heavy and impressive. I was a little leary in the 1 3/4 hp motor and how it would handle larger jobs, but it…Continue
The new plastic screw boxes are great. Wanted to make a suggestion to allow easy labeling when reusing. Perhaps you could make the original label like those you find on some other products (medicine bottles for example) where the top layer peels away and then there are instructions underneath, but in this case would leave you with a plain white label underneath to write on.
May not be possible and I know increased cost of label for you, but just a thought when was trying to…Continue
These pads should be switched. The articulating handle feels more ergonomic in the fingers while squeezing it and flicking it back open. To use it with the jig you need to use your thumb to squeeze and that tired my hand out after a dozen holes. I still needed to use two hands.
