When I was designing one of my first projects (Router Cabinet) I came across this pocket hole system and its awesome and forms extremely strong joints.

The kit comes with everything you need to create a somewhat hidden joint, especially when you use the Kreg Plugs.

If you build frames for anything from cabinets to pictures this method is awesome.

Pocket holes are awesome, and Kreg is also.

I don’t have the latest models, mine is about 7-8 years old now but I have found it to be great for constructing face frames

Pocketholes with the Kreg Jig rule! It was money well spent. I have a stash of pocket screws of all lengths.

I’ve had the R3 for a few years now. I use it often and love it. I’ll probably upgrade to a larger kit someday.
$40 seems like a lot for this tiny, simplistic kit. But once you start using it….you realize the price is easily justified.

I agree with you $40 is a lot I’m even thinking of getting the R4 but I can’t seem to being myself to spending $100… But I love the idea of fitting my workpiece into it instead of fitting my jog onto the piece … Ya know

I’ve had mine about 8 years. I cannot believe how much I’ve used it and for how many things. I started buying those giant screw boxes to save a buck on the screws. You may want to look at those (1000 screws for $20?)

One of the little gray plastic edge hooks broke last month. I emailed Kreg and asked them how to get another little plastic thingy and they sent me an entire new R3 hole jig.

I’ve have the K4, it’s one of my favorite tools! Best 100 bucks spent!
