Kreg Joinery: No Glue or Complicated Math Required
The Kreg Jig takes advantage of a technique called Kreg Joinery. Unlike other techniques, Kreg Joinery requires no glue, no complicated math, and no small army of clamps to make wood joints that will last.

With Kreg Joinery, you can finish projects in hours instead of days. You won't spend any time clamping, waiting for glue to dry, or wading through complicated math. It essentially involves drilling a hole at an angle into one workpiece, and connecting it to another workpiece with a self-tapping screw.

Amazingly Strong with Half the Effort
Unlike mortise and tenons, dowels, and biscuits, the self-tapping screws inside of every Kreg Joint hold the stock together without glue. You don't have to worry about precisely lining up dowel holes, or spending hours cutting a perfect mortise and tenon--you simply drill the holes, drive the screws, and move on to the next project.

And because what you see is what you get with Kreg Joinery, you won't spend all your time calculating stock-overlaps and dry-fitting individual workpieces. All you need is simple math to get fast and accurate results.

Kreg Jig K4: Ideal for the DIYer
The Kreg Jig is designed specially for the do-it-yourselfer or anyone new to Kreg Joinery. It can be used for endless applications around the house, helping you to save time and effort.

The Kreg Jig’s patented 3-Hole 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. Whether you're using one of Kreg's multi-purpose Face Clamps (sold separately) or any common bar clamp or c-clamp, the Kreg Jig's large clamping recess makes it easy to secure your jig to your workbench during use.

For the hard-to-reach repair applications, or when you just want to take your work on the road, the jig's removable Drill Guide guarantees that you'll always have the right tool for the job.

In addition to the Kreg Jig (model K4), Kreg offers serious wood workers the Kreg Jig Master System (model K3MS), the ultimate kit for Kreg Joinery. For basic woodworking or home improvement projects, the Kreg Jig Jr. (model R3) has what you need to get started.

The Kreg Difference
While each Kreg Jig has its own features designed to meet the particular needs of its users, all Kreg Jigs share a design and high-quality construction which add up to the "Kreg Difference."



Kit includes everything you need to get started.
Each Kreg Jig features hardened steel drill guides that carry a 100-percent lifetime guarantee. The body of each Kreg Jig is made from a heavy-duty glass-reinforced nylon that offers the resiliency and flexibility you need without sacrificing strength and durability.

To create a cleaner pocket-hole and a more finished appearance, all Kreg Jigs shroud the bit and support the workpiece through 100-percent of the drill-stroke. The end result is minimal bit deflection, reduced tear-out, and a clean, pluggable Pocket-Hole fit for finished work.

Every Kreg Jig also features an optimized 15 degree drilling angle designed to increase driving efficiency and minimize the overall size of the Pocket-Hole. This same Pocket-Hole can be created by the Kreg Jig in materials from 1/2- to 1-1/2 inches thick.

The Kreg Jig includes a 30 Day Customer Satisfaction Guarantee and Lifetime Warranty on its Hardened Steel Drill Guide.

What's in the Box
Kreg Jig K4, stepped drill bit, 6-inch square driver, starter screw set, starter plug set, SkillBuilder DVD, Quick-Start Guide, and durable carrying case.

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.

Verified Purchase
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.
