Kreg K3 Master System bench mounting plate.MP4

An addition to the Kreg jig I made that allows it to be mounted to a vice, workmate, or modified bench. Plus a few pieces that I have made using the jig.

Thank for the idea of sinking the jig in the bench - will implement - solves a variety of construction issues

Hi Graeme,
I used the mounting plate idea, but my materials are the opposite way around; the base is hardwood and the bar for the vice is square tube steel salvaged from a scrap desk (I work in a school).
I made the base a lot wider than the Kreg (300mm - ish) and put wooden rails along the edges, the same height as the jig, to give more stability when drilling bigger sheets. I only got the thing yesterday and have used it to repair several broken stools.
I think I'll mostly use it at work to make bookcases and things like that. What I'll use it for at home is another matter.
Fun, isn't it? Cheers.

Hi John .... Sure. The screw is a 5" long No 10.
I predrilled a clearance hole about three quarters the way through the 4X1, the screw only screws through the last inch. I chopped 1" off the end of the screw to form a flat face. This flat face pushes against the 1" ash on the underside of the jig and holds it firm. I hope that explains it ok .... if not, let me know and I will take a couple of pictures and post them up.

Thanks for looking and your comments.

Smashing! Great idea and a nice job putting the video together. I don't quite get how the locking screw actually works though. Will you explain that please?

I have to thank Jim Delorme for giving me the idea of sinking the jig in to the bench. I hope you like the idea and can use it in your shops.

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

Miter saw stand

     Has anyone used one of the Kreg Universal Stand configurations as the base for a miter saw workstation with fold down wings?  I scrolled through the pics in the community and all I saw were using a DIY base cabinet.  I have an extra Kreg router…Continue

New Kreg 720Pro

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…

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…
