In order to make the numbers (dimensions) more readable in the Kreg Pocket-Hole Jig, I brushed on White Out and then carefully wiped it off of the surface with a barely damp paper towel dampened with mineral spirits. For anyone with this tool, I strongly recommend making this improvement; you can see much better the numbers used to adjust the jig.
Here is an attempt to add a picture… hope it works!

This same topic was discussed earlier today. I think the woodworking gods are talking to me. I need to do this to my Kreg Jig.

Thanks for the omen!!!

Brandon W,
Are you saying it is NOT an omen? Does that mean, I should not do the same to my Kreg Jig??? ;-P)
