Description

The D.I.Y. Kreg Jig®
The Kreg Jig® is the perfect choice for DIY’ers and anyone new to Pocket-Screw Joinery. Whether you’re building your first set of garage storage shelves or making simple repairs around the house, the Kreg Jig® can help you finish the job in less time, and with far less effort than you ever thought possible. Its simple design gives you the confidence to start the project, and with joints as easy as “Drill. Drive. Done!” – you’ll actually want to finish it.

3-Hole Removable Drill Guide
Our patented 3-Hole removable Drill Guide lets you make perfectly placed Pocket-Holes in a wide variety of material widths and thicknesses, without ever having to release the clamp and reposition the workpiece. The Drill Guide can be removed completely from the benchtop base and used for making repairs just about anywhere.

Hardened Steel Core
Drill Guides are subject to direct contact with the drill bit every time a Pocket-Hole is created. The core of every Kreg Jig® features hardened steel which carries an exclusive 100% Lifetime Guarantee. The Kreg Jig®’s core shrouds the bit and supports the workpiece through 100% of the drill-stroke. The end result is minimal bit deflection, reduced tear-out, and a clean, pluggable Pocket-Hole fit for finish work.

Large Clamping Recess
The Large Clamping Recess makes it easy to secure your jig to your workbench using our multi-purpose Face Clamps™ or any common bar clamp or c-clamp.

Sturdy Toggle-Clamp
The Kreg Jig®’s rear-mounted clamp design has been around since the first Kreg Jig®. It’s a proven design offering incredible rigidity and uncompromising workpiece hold-strength. Adjustments are as easy as releasing the lock-nut, and rotating to the correct setting.

Glass-Reinforced Nylon Body
The blue body of the Kreg Jig® is actually made from a heavy-duty glass-reinforced nylon. This unique composite material offers the resiliency and flexibility you need without sacrificing the strength and durability Kreg customers have come to expect.

Superior Angle
Unlike competing jigs with a shallower angle of approach, the Kreg Jig® features an optimized drilling angle specifically designed to increase driving efficiency and minimize the overall size of the Pocket-Hole. The result is a compact Pocket-Hole, less than 1-1/2” in size.

Wood-Chip Relief
Sometimes the simplest things are the easiest to overlook. The Kreg Jig® includes 1 wood-chip relief hole for every Drill Guide hole, designed to keep the drill bit clear of excess wood chips, minimizing drill torque, increasing the longevity of your drill bits, and allowing you to complete a perfect Pocket-Hole in one plunge instead of three!

Kit Includes
Includes everything you need to get started with Kreg Joinery™, including Kreg Jig®, Stepped Drill Bit, 6” Square Driver, Starter Screw Set, Starter Plug Set, SkillBuilder™ DVD, and Quick-Start Guide, all inside a compact and durable carrying case

WOOD magazine review

Top of the line with lots of accessories

Review Summary

Kreg invented the pocket-hole jig for drills, and this is the company's best version yet. It's a K4 jig with a ton of extras, making it the "Master System". You get everything you need to make pocket holes either in a "fixed" benchtop setting or portable where you take the removable drill guide or the included Mini jig right to the wood and clamp it in place.
Either way, this jig is simple to use to make clean, precise holes in workpiece thicknesses from 1/2" to 1-1/2" using the best, longest-lasting drill bits available. With three drill guides you get three spacing options with each placement of the jig, and center markings for each guide hole make it easy to line up the jig with layout marks. The hardened drill guides showed no wear during our testing, and neither did the drill bit. The toggle clamp worked well at securing workpieces in the jig, but it takes a few trial-and-error adjustments when changing workpiece thicknesses.

Another Hit

Review Summary

Great kit For someone like myself just starting in woodworking , I do not have the skills yet to do good jointery but still wanting to build nice strong pieces. I fill after my skills improve that this will still be used for those projects that will need to be strong but not worth spinding time for the high end wood joints. I am a very big fan of Kreg I have not found one product that I do not love.

pocket hole joinery has it's place

Review Summary

If you haven't used pocket hole joinery yet your missing the boat. It's not the strongest joint you can make , but they definitely have their place. They have long been used in the cabinet industry for assembling face frames, primarily because they are strong enough for that application and are faster to produce than dowels, since their is minimal clamping involved. I've used this kit for many years now and it has worked well for me.
They produce a strong joint and can be used in any place where the back of the joint is not showing. The Kreg system can be used in assembling any wood joint from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inch using the proper length and type of screw.The vacuum adapter collects 100% of the wood chips and helps keep the bit from clogging. well when attached to a shop vac One secret to producing a nice tight flush joint is to be sure you put plenty of side clamping pressure on the mating pieces so that they don't slip apart when you drive in the screws. I had one of my jigs come apart on me and they replaced it without question and did so immediately at no cost to me. Customer service is top notch. Haven't had any issues since.

Excellent Tool!

Review Summary

I've had Kreg tools for many years now and they are wonderful. Allows anyone to build quality and strong furniture/cabinets. This particular set is called The Master Set and it's a great value for your hard earned money. You would be spending a lot more if you were to buy the individual pieces of the set. I LOVE KREG!!!
