Kreg Owners' Community

As soon as I got back to the shop with the tool, I inverted my 71/4 circle saw and adjusted the tool. I set the guide arm so that it was just inside the teeth on the blade. My blade has staggered teeth. Then I drew my cut line. I then set the guide arm just inside the mark, bingo! Just what I wanted. There is one other thing that I did. The stock was firmly clamped. There is 10 rubber feet on the tool. I set the tool in place, fired up one of my KREG clamps, and, firmly but gently clamped the tool to the stock. Great cut and no damage to the guide arm or the Square Cut itself. Like most others, I use the Starrett measuring equipment so I am comfortable with what I am seeing. The result for me, a square cut and both hands free to operate and control my saw. As far as speed was concerned, I probably lost a few seconds at best. The quality of the cut is my bottom line. I am not suggesting anything to anyone, I'm merely sharing my results of an invaluable tool. Thanks All! Buck Fleshner, Santa Rosa, CA.

Hi Buck!


It's been a while since you wrote this review, but I was wondering what you meant by "I inverted my 71/4 circle saw".

Hi All,

I am new to the Woodworking Community. I got interested after seeing the Kreg Jig in action. I too am interested in a Left Handed version of this tool not only because of the convenience being left handed myself, but also I believe it is a lot safer. If you were to swing the Square Cut 180 degrees as suggested, it means that you now have to pull the Jig and you fingers are that much closer to the blade. Left handed persons may also be using left handed circular saws, therefore that counteracts the added safety feature of the this tool. I mean having a mirror image of this tool would be awesome and could be sold as a set. Just my opinion.

I love the KREG Community, in addition to the most talented folks on the planet, I love their sense of humor. Now, on a serious note. Jesse Haynes, I believe has hit upon something and it gave me an idea. I would ask KREG if it was practical to build and exact image of the current Square Cut except in reverse. KREG may already be working on this. If so, I apologize for talking out of school. Maybe put out a few copies just to test the waters. I believe that the reverse tool would become a standard with our left handed friends. Just a thought. Respectfully, Buck, Santa Rosa, CA.

Jesse, why don't you place the square cut at the far end of the timber with your right hand and run the saw with your left hand?

Thanks gang. I have been doing some more experimenting with the KREG square cut. You are familiar with the 90/90 cut, well...I may have come up with a way to do the 90/45 cut. If I do, I'll advise. Either way, I have both hands on my saw and am in control. Thanks All! Buck Fleshner,,,Santa Rosa, CA.

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…
