Product Description


The Kreg Jig Jr. (R3) is an amazing repair jig and an exceptionally handy addition to any tool collection. Whether you're crawling under a table to make a quick repair or taking Kreg Joinery on the road, the Jr.'s compact design lets you work where you need to most, and it gives you what you need to start building wood joints that will last the life of your creation.

The Kreg Jig® Jr. offers:
  • A compact design that lets you work wherever you need
  • Easy-press positioning sliders with 9 settings
  • 2-Hole Drill Guide with Hardened Steel Core and Lifetime Warranty
  • Convenient design can be used with any standard bar clamp or a c-clamp

Miter joints for picture frames can be completed quickly, since the positioning legs move independently of one another. View larger.

The Kreg Jig Jr. is built to work with any style of clamp and adjusts easily for different material thicknesses. View larger.

Adjusting the Kreg Jig Jr. for different applications is quick and easy. View larger.
Kreg Joinery: No Glue or Complicated Math Required
The Kreg Jig Jr. 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 Jr: The Perfect Home-Repair Tool
The Kreg Jig Jr. is an amazing repair jig with a compact design that lets you work where you need to most. Thanks to its Clamp Pad Adapter, the Jr. can be secured to the workpiece with any standard bar clamp or c-clamp. In addition, the adapter allows the jig to be attached directly to any Kreg Face Clamp (sold separately) for faster and more repeatable pocket-holes.

From thin drawer boxes and craft projects to stout 2x4's, this jig can handle them all. Independent Easy-Press positioning sliders feature nine separate depth settings, allowing you to easily join materials from 1/2-inch to 1-1/2-inches thick in 1/8-inch increments. And to set the jig properly, you simply depress the button on the side of the jig and move the sliders so your material thickness is aligned with the arrow on the jig body. It couldn't be any easier.

The Kreg Jig Jr. includes a compact, durable plastic carrying case that will ensure that you always have the tool, drill bit, and screws on hand to complete your next project. As a bonus, the case features a molded depth collar gauge for a handy reference.

In addition to the Kreg Jig Jr. (model R3), Kreg offers DIYers and anyone new to Kreg joinery the Kreg Jig (model K4). For serious wood workers, Kreg offers the Kreg Jig Master System (model K3MS), the ultimate kit for Kreg Joinery.

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

What's in the Box
Kreg Jig Jr., clamp pad adapter, stepped drill bit, 6 driver bit, depth collar, allen wrench, starter screw set, and durable carrying case.

I purchased this jig to make a farm table for my wife, it was our turn to host Thanksgiving and we didn't have a dining table big enough for our family, so I decided to make one. It made the assembly so much easier! Didn't have a single board crack on me. It was the first time I used it so I was reluctant to even purchase it but boy am I glad i did. Only thing is I wish I would have bought the bigger one because now I want to make other projects.

I read a quick review of this kit in Fine Woodworking and needed to drill some pocket holes for a workbench I'm building. Great little tool and does exactly what it says. At first I thought it felt a little flimsy (the actual hole jig is all plastic except for the two drill guides) but it's super sturdy and dead accurate.

I also purchased a bunch of Kreg screws to go with it, but the kit comes with 100 or so of various sizes and those will probably be the only ones I need for this project. But, you can never have too many screws in enough sizes!

After years of watching my Good Buddy Norm Abram on the New Yankee Workshop rave about the Kreg Pocket Screw System, I was all set to get started with it,

Kreg makes many versions of their pocket hole system tools and this Kreg K3 Master Pocket Hole system has recently come out. It works like a charm.

Their least expensive kit is the Kreg MLJKIT Mini Kreg Jig Kit, which is about as basic as you can imagine, was not going to work for me.

Kreg makes all kinds of machines to make pocket holes, from their DK5100 monster for almost seven grand, to the before mentioned Mini.

This one is Just Right.

The R3 comes in a cute little plastic box, which appears sturdy enough, and has all you really need for an occasional pocket hole.

(A pocket hole is a way of drilling at an angle, a hole which allows special screws to tightly pull together two pieces of wood. It is a very efficient, fast and easy to use way of making face frames, or to basically join any two pieces of wood together.)

This kit has the duel jig which lets you drill two holes, side-by-side (or you can just use one of the holes), and on the sides there are plastic slides which let you dial in the width of the board you will be drilling. The adjustable depth can be varied from 1/2" to 1 1/2".

The special drill bit rests in the case and can be adjusted to the corresponding depth by loosening and tightening an adjustable collar with the provided allen wrench.

It takes longer to explain it than to do it.

After making the holes, you drill the special screws with the very long square drive. You can see the two pieces of wood drawn together.

The only thing I need now is the Kreg RAC Angle Clamp.

Saw this item used on "Cool Tools" and figured id give it a try. 3 words, Absolutely love it. Create quick solid joints without having to wait for glue to set. Great for quick little projects where I don't feel like breaking out the plate joiner/glue or make Tenons/Mortises. However its still strong enough for cabinets. The case is small enough to not take up any more of my already limited storage space and still has room to store all my accompanying accessories. The chart on the inside of the case takes all the guess work out of which screws to use with which size/type wood. Even more helpful on the inside of the case is the measuring guide for setting the drill bit depth. I don't know about the rest of you users but while convenient for the measuring guide, keeping the inside plastic seemed like such a waste of storage space for me. The jig it self is very easy to use with preset sizes just a click away. Overall I love this tool and it has more then paid for its self as far as I am concerned.

My one bit of advice, make sure you have a very strong clamp otherwise the jig will slide sideways when you start drilling.

I'm one of those people who only read directions if I can't figure out how to use something intuitively. By attempt #4, I was an expert user. LOL.

I don't have dado blades for making dado joints, nor do I own a dovehole jig. I HATE 45 angle joints with a passion! Most of my joining is plain, old-fashioned, line'er up butt joints.

15 years ago, I'd seen this tool demo'd at a huge woodworking show I was wandering through in Portland OR. It has stuck in my mind as a "must have" slick jig tool, all these years. I couldn't remember the name, but I sure remembered "slanty holes" and tried to find something locally. You should see what Home Depot sells--talk about awkward and tomfoolery! YUCKERS!!

This is everything I remembered, and thanks to Amazon, I now know its name is KREG.

I'd just never had a need for it before now. I'm "retired now" you know, and have never been busier! LOL

Now, in my 60s, I have time to screen in a front porch, (done!) install headers for the transom above my new door, (done) and remodel my own bathroom to install a shower. (THAT IS NEXT! LOL!)

I remembered my "wow" impression for butt joining wall studs and headers with this "blue tool." I went to Amazon to find the best price., and it was received in the mail almost before I had time to turn around. THANKS!

NOW, I'll read the directions. (grin)
