First of all, I love my Kregg pocket hole jig, except for all the drill-dust. I’ve had it for a number of years and I seldom do a project without it, even though clean up’s a pain. As many companys do, Kregg came out with a new model, one that includes the ability to attach a shop vac to the jig. No worries, I’m thinking I’ll just get a retro-fit part or something. No luck and No way I’m spending another $100+ on the new model! I’ve got my Kregg mounted on one side of my assembly table. A little scrap 1/2” ply, a little glue, a couple screws, a piece of plexiglass for the top and I’ve got a simple box. Drilled a hole in the side and fitted it with an adapter for my dust collector. Had to notch it a little to fit the contour of the top. I hold it in place with a wing nut attached to a threaded rod that screws into a threaded insert I put into the side of the table (easy to take off when not in use & solid as a rock in use). I wanted to keep the box as small as possible, I walk around that side of the table alot. Thats why I ended up with the adaptor to hook up the dust collector. There seems to just enough “air leakage” around the box to create perfect air flow. None, zip, zero, not-a dust left behind! Heck, now I’m waiting for their next model change!
