Portable Base

product

I like this portable base a lot, but it has one design flow that I found a little annoying. The 3 mounting holes on the base are not counter sunk to allow mounting screws to be flush with the bottom of the base. Thus when using a jig in the base the jig adjustment are off by the height of the screw head that was used. The jig will not sit flush to the bottom of the base.

Kreg Rip Cut

Since I bought the Rip Cut I have questioned the quality and design of the tool. It took me multiple times to get it calibrated. I then made one rip cut on 3/4" plywood with my 6 1/2" saw. It did not stay square and totally screwed up my wood. Never going to use that again. It should be all aluminum and they need a better way to mount the saw to the sled. No more screws and more secure.

Kreg Jig Jr.

I do love this product, making it easy to build projects for my home. Just started building a book case and hit a snag.

I am using 1/2" material and followed the screw size chart which says the 1" screw and it was too long and came out the other side! I was abruptly disappointed as on my last project I used 3/4" material and it was a breeze.

Anyone had this issue with 1/2" material?

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

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…
