I was building a set of shelves that would be assembeled with picket screws when I decided I needed the K4 kit. I had a 20 year old aluminum pocket hole jig with a hardened insert that you just clamped to the work, but to get this lined up and clamped took a long time and I had about 90 holes to drill for this project. The Kreg K4 was so easy to set up and use and I was able to drill all the holes in just a fraction of the time. I like the K4 better than the K3 master because it's easy to clamp to the work bench with the clamp recess right in front. The old cumbersome jig I had before really kept me from using pocket screw assembly very much, but I can see this K4 getting much more use. It's a very good tool.

I got the K4 system because it seemed like it would work and I already had a similar hold-down clamp. Saved $40 for what I needed. I ended up screwing the unit to a wooden work bench, rather than using the clamp anyway and that is a good way to do it, probably the best.

The dust collection was hooked up to my Fein vac that turns on when the drill is on. Not even a scrap of dust. Totally clean. See my Fein vac review.

Set-up is very easy per the nice simple little instruction pamphlet and the very professional DVD that is included.

You obviously have to use this tool correctly to get the great results. This means getting the right screws for the job. There are all sorts of different screw options from Kreg. I got the course ones for soft wood and suffered no splits or other problems. The screws seem to be of the highest quality, good for other projects as well.

I was kind of worried that I would have to come up with some kind of a jig to hold my wood at a right angle. I found this is not necessary. What you have to do is make sure the ends are exactly 90 degrees because that end will be drawn very tight to the other board. If it is off a degree, the screws will set it one degree off, if they are perfect, then it will be perfectly perpendicular. So, just take the time to make sure your crosscuts are perfectly accurate. This joinery system is very hard to fudge, it is very unforgiving of errors.

The bit has that hard feel to it, sharp and probably not meant to take much in the way of sharp impacts. I drilled down at a modest rate so as to not break anything and nothing did break. There is a collar that you adjust for the depth of wood. Unlike a set of collars I bought for general use, the Kreg one sets securely and doesn't slide on you.

I originally started off by purchasing the Kreg R3 Jr. Pocket Hole Jig - which is an outstanding product with an amazing case. It was so good I got this one in addition.

You can create pocket holes in wood much quicker with the K4 than the Jr. Jig. The clamp holds the wood up against the drilling jig and holds it very steady. If you attach a shop vac to the jig, as you drill most of the shavings go right into the vac. It also helps hold the wood against the jig.

This unit is designed with holes for screwing down to your workbench. I pull it out of its box and use it without holding it down with screws. It works very well without screwing down.

Because the jig guides the drill bit, I was even able to let my 7 year old drill the pocket holes. Once your holes are drilled, clamp the two pieces of wood together and drive with the nice long square drive bit included and it will actually pull the wood together. The joint is very strong and reliable.

I gave the Jr. Jig a perfect 5 - this one is not as perfect.

1) The case is just a plastic box. You can't leave the vacuum port attached while it is in the box. It seems more like a product they expect you to screw down to your bench not put away when not in use.
2) You can use the drilling guide with the supplied spacer to do 1/2 inch material outside of the clamping jig but it is not nearly as convenient.
3) Even though you don't need a clamp while drilling, you do need one while screwing it together and that clamp isn't included in this kit.

I recommend you step up to the Kreg K4MS Jig Master System. It costs more but it includes a carrier for the drilling jig so you can use stand alone it for more than just 1/2 inch material and an excellent face clamp.

Unlike perhaps some users I am coming from a reasonable woodworking background, having used other jointing meathods such as biscuits and rabbits. This is fast way of making joints, but there are some drawbacks.

I have found that when making flat face frames the wood is drawn up at the angle of the screw, and its very difficult to end up with a flat joint. If you have one, you know what I'm talking about and they even say in the DVD you will have to likely do some "minor sanding". I did try various clamps along the joint with some improvement but no solution. Also, if you are using glue, it tends to act as a lube and lets the wood move more, but of course the joint will be stronger.

Unfortunately, on smaller jonits like face frames, you also get movement on the other axis, as the screw acts as a pivot. I had to reclamp and check to make sure my smaller face frame parts were still alighned and most of the time they were not and adjustments were needed.

On plywood the screw tends to take the easier way and if one layer is softer a it normally is, your screw and the joing will pull the wood out of alignment. On Kreg, there is nothing holding this alignment. To assist you really need to shell out the $30 for the right angle clamp, which I did, but even that is not perfect. The pad for the non-hole said hangs down below a typical 3/4" board and will hold it off the work surface. And you still can get movement, there's nothing stopping that and when you're looking for total alignment as you are in woodworking - its dissappointing.

You really have to also use biscuits and have a biscuit jointer to make acceptable panel joints in my opinion, and its even mentioned in the DVD. Biscuits will hold the panel in perfect alignment, then you screw it.
