Kreg Drawer Slide Jig

Kreg Drawer Slide Jig

05-01-2018 12:16 PM by scribble | 0 comments »

I finally got around to using these after they sat in my workbench for several months. I will say they do a good job as long as everything is straight to begin with. I built a small drill press rolling cabinet and used it to install my drawer slides. When using with a face frame it helps for the face frame stiles to be taller than 3/4” so the clamps have more meat to grab a hold of. I think the spot that these shine the best is in mounting the drawer to the slides by supporting the ...

Kreg hinge jig ok with one major annoying flaw

Kreg hinge jig ok with one major annoying flaw

04-09-2018 03:24 AM by Mike_D_S | 5 comments »

So I had a home made jig for installing concealed hinges that i managed to misplace. I happened to be in the Woodcraft and saw the Kreg jig, so i figured I’d give it a try as the price was pretty good. So after installing a dozen doors worth of hinges, I have some hints and one major gripe about the jig. The good:It’s easy to use. The guide keeps the forstner bit perpendicular with out much effort.Consistent placement is easy to achieve.The price is right. The hints:Kee...

After loosing some tools and what not in a fire, i was left needing a portable work bench. My plan was to buy another Workmate 425 to replace my lost one, but there were none to be had locally. While looking for something similar i found these Kreg units at Lowe’s. The price was a little higher than the Workmate and they had no integrated vise, but they do support various Kreg clamping systems (the package includes one Kreg Bench Clamp). The system also provides a method of hooking two ...

Great Jig for a Reasonable Price

Great Jig for a Reasonable Price

12-30-2017 03:00 AM by scarpenter002 | 4 comments »

As I was starting my Home Office project, I decided to use the European styled hinges, rather than the more common hinges I typically use. I have not had much luck with these hinges, so based on research decided to purchase some jigs to make my installations more repeatable. I reviewed many different jigs, and through the shopping process, ran into the Kreg. I have always been happy with Kreg products in the past, and with a MSRP of only $29.99 USD, it did not seem like too much of a gambl...

Great Table even better customer service!!!

A couple weeks ago, I ordered a Kreg Mobile Project Center on the internet. When it arrived, I opened it to find that it had been damaged due to it being assembled incorrectly. I called Kreg customer support and after a brief explanation of what had happened, they had a new table on its way to me. When the second table arrived, I noticed that it had been damaged during shipping. I sent an email to Kreg customer support explaining what had happened and what I thought the cause of it was. A few...

Kreg Step Drill Bits Dull? Get'em sharpened at Kreg!!!

Kreg Step Drill Bits Dull? Get'em sharpened at Kreg!!!

Do you have a gaggle of Kreg Step Drill bits in a drawer in your shop collecting dust? Well, I had several bits because when one would get dull, I would purchase another. What?......$17 or so? Kreg Tool Company offers a bit sharpening service that is not only economical but is fast and convenient. I mailed off 5 bits and within a week got them back sharp and in a nice storage box. The price today is $5 per bit and that includes return postage. Click on the link here to get the 4-1...

Good and Even Versitle, With Effort

Good and Even Versitle, With Effort

I use these on my cabinet saw, band saw and router table. Once set in place and locked down, they hold their position well. I could replace the plastic, expanding slides that lock in the miter track with aluminum ones I have in my jig accessory box, but, for now it would be more cosmetic than necessary. These go on working well enough, though they don’t release their grip as well as my aluminum ones. For those with a right tilt table saw, a band saw and a router table, you need on...

Although I think a lot of Kregs products are exspensive they are extremely well made and they are made for the beginner in mind. I purchased this jig because I wanted to put shelf pin holes in an existing cabinet and it worked awesome, I especially like the simplicity of the jig. The Shelf Pin Jig also includes a dual-position, adjustable fence for custom hole placement, a locating pin for quick and accurate spacing reference, a jig extender that lets you connect multiple Shelf Pin Jigs...

My first experience with Kreg was when I purchased the small R3 jig and I have to say I enjoyed it and it worked simply and efficiently so I decided to upgrade my model and purchased the K4…. It was a bigger cost jump and to be honest I think it’s over priced BUT after building a cedar deck cooler with it ….. It was worth every penny. I built a version of the Kreg storage box that they have plans to on there website and secured the jig to it and it works a treat…. ...

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.
