Kreg Drawer Slide Jigs

Kreg Drawer Slide Jigs

853 days ago by Daris | 4 comments »

One of my favorite toys is my Kreg Drawer Slide Jig’s.  There are actually two jigs that you’ll want to use to help you install a drawer.  The first is the Kreg Universal Drawer Slide Mounting Jig.  This jig makes it extremely easy to take attach a drawer mount to your project. It has a magnent and a small lip on the bottom of the jig that allow it to hold your drawer slide for you.  All you do is put your drawer slide on it and then clamp the jig to the case or cabinent yo...

I can't believe these are 8 bucks

I can't believe these are 8 bucks

416 days ago by lumberjoe | 18 comments »

I didn’t feel like making my own bench dogs, I also didn’t feel like paying tons of money for them. In one of my many recent trips to woodcraft, I saw these and decided to try them out The Good They work. They fit snugly in the 3/4” holes I drilled and laid flat on the bench top. They are nylon, but appear to be very strong. I clamped down on my vise way more than I needed to a few times to see if they would crack or give. They didn’t. The flat faces are just the...

Kreg tool changes the way you work

Kreg tool changes the way you work

2371 days ago by Jim | 8 comments »

I got pulled in at a woodworking show years ago, and I’m glad I did. I think this is the first generation offered by Kreg and I’m tempted to buy the latest just to see how much it’s improved. I enjoy building shelves and faceframe cabinets and the Kreg makes that work even more enjoyable. I mounted the tool to a piece of plywood so it’s always hanging nearby and easily clamped to a table for action. I bought the Kreg right-angle clamps and the metal plate which speeds ...

I went to buy this fence last Thursday to mount it on my HF band saw.I mounted it Saturday and yesterday Sunday.I am mechanic by trade and it is my job to make stuff work, no matter what.Well, this fence was a challenge. I was expecting an easy and straight forward installation, the installation was anything but——The table had two threaded holes in the front which lined up with fixation holes in the fence but contrary to what it is supposed to be , when using these holes the fenc...

Kreg bandsaw fence is a resawing dream

Kreg bandsaw fence is a resawing dream

1382 days ago by 8iowa | 14 comments »

Among Kreg’s many useful accessories is their bandsaw fence. This fence system has the precision to make thin strips for veneering, edge banding, or oval boxes, as well as doing general resawing. One of the test strips shown above is 2” x 30” and is an incredibly uniform .014 thousandths thick. It’s easy to compensate for blade drift and the rip scale is also a handy feature. Kreg makes this fence for many popular bandsaws. Additional and optional accessories includ...

Worth every Penny

Worth every Penny

1352 days ago by USCJeff | 2 comments »

I had a few bucks on a Lowe’s gift card and it was one of those rare times I didn’t have something jump out at me that I “need”. I’ve had good luck with Kreg products (namely, pocket hole jig) so I decided to give this one a shot. I normally have used a combo square, fixed squares, and some shop built story sticks and such. The claim from Kreg is that it can be used for 90 & 45 layout, a story stick, depth gauge for set up, a torpedo level, and a couple o...

Not to much to say about it other then its sturdy and gives you a perfect way to trasport and store you kreg pocket hole jigs and the supply to use it. If any of you are like me I own more then one K3 and have found my self using this system in many ways the folks at kreg probable never imagined. so this tool box has made portability for me much easier now one box takes care of it all. I hate to rave about something as simple as a plastic tool box but the folks at Kreg have hit a home r...

First of all, I want to apologize for my english level. My parents have decided to be french.That being said, I hope this review will be useful to you. I have bought Kreg Jigs in the past and have been pleased by the overall quality and ease of use.That’s why I have bought Kreg Precision Band Saw Fence, Resaw Guide and Rip Cut Jig to enhance my shop. Here in Québec/Canada, as french is the official language, companies have to provide french manuals. It’s not a whim, it’...

Awesome pocket hole system

Awesome pocket hole system

661 days ago by pendledad | 8 comments »

I was trying to determine the best method for joining together my radiator covers. I didn’t have time for traditional joinery like mortise & tenon. I needed something where I could build 4 radiator covers in about two days (very fast for a newcomer like me). I was going between a biscuit joiner and pocket screws. I finally decided on pocket screws because I didn’t want to deal with the gluing and drying. I also liked the fact that I could disassemble the pieces if I made ...

Kreg Pocket hole jig Jr.

Kreg Pocket hole jig Jr.

582 days ago by AJswoodshop | 15 comments »

I’ve been using this Kreg jig Jr. for over a year now, and it’s well worth the money. It works great and I’m very happy with it. Only a few issues but the price is great! Positives--Includes drill bit, drill bit stop, a driver bit for square head screws, square head screws, plugs, the manual, the case, and the jig. All of these things work great.-It’s small size can fit in tight areas. Negatives--It’s hard to keep the jig from sliding around, you have to cl...
