I’m not sure if I’m in the correct area but I’m wondering if anyone out there have a Kreg Jig 4 and upgraded to a Kreg Jig 5. Are you selling the Kreg Jig 4? How much are you selling it for and what is the condition? I have the Kreg Jig Jr. and it has become a time consuming and difficult to work with tool and need something I can work faster with. Also, those are expensive to buy brand new. Just want information first before I commit to anything. Would like pictures and honesty please.

Thanks

I found this aluminium version at HF for a lot less. It works well. I have been thinking of building an angled base that would match the drill press angle to bring some power and automation to the process.

Just some ideas for you. I have lots of ideas, just not enough time to implement them all!

Hi timbertailor, I’ve seen that jig numerous times at HF but I’ve been skeptical about buying it. I guess it’s because there are no adjustments in wood thickness as the KJ has. That HF model only has four holes which looks like only options available for wood thickness. I haven’t seen the tool in action so of course I could be wrong but enlighten me since you have the tool already. Are the thickness option the same as the KJ?

Yes. The inner set of drill guides are for smaller stock, and the outer drill guides are for thicker stock.
No need to make changes for different size stock with this design. Already built in.

The aluminium drill guide head can be removed and used remotely.

I have seen pneumatic actuators, Rocklers T Track Clamps installed, and all sorts of mods to these units on the internet, just depending how far you want to go. I think EBay had the actuators for under $100. Do a search on YouTube, as well, if you want to learn about all your possible options.
