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 station. So minus one star for this cheapness. 

Now a very BIG issue for me is that none of the guides from an older jig like the K4 or K5 will work on this! So if you have a micro jig, plug cutter or the HD guides you are just crap out of luck. Kreg could of easily designed the old ones to work but decided to ream you for more money to buy new ones. I am not doing that. So minus two stars on this issue.

The jig's vacuum works well. The auto adjust clamp works and it is nice that you can use it vertically or horizontally so I will give 2 stars. 

It is a shame you that a 5 star system is degraded by cheapness and the lack of insight to be able to use previous guides. 

I cleaned the 720 up and boxed it back up and will return it Tuesday. I will keep the older versions. 

I expected a lot more from Kreg.

Replacing existing slides but cannot remove drawer front

The Kreg slides are made to work with new drawers before putting on the drawer front. In my situation, I cannot remove the existing fronts which means when reversing the jig to hold the draw, it’s at an angle. Not sure what I should do to make them…Continue

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…
