This is a good idea when working with different wood thicknesses, you won’t have to keep resetting the jig. Good one Mike.

Thanks Dave! Glad you like the tutorial. This has been a pretty awesome jig and I’m personally surprised how long its lasted considering there is not a metal sleeve in there for the drill to run inside of.

I considered making one in the past but since I already own a Kreg, the incentive wasn’t there. Nice drawing, I’m old fashioned and still prefer 2D.

Yeah, if you already bought the jig it’s wasted time. Glad you like the drawing. I started off on velum in school but industry requires CAD and 3D modeling…
