Features at a Glance
Fast, Simple Setup
When you’re ready to get started building, the Kreg Jig K5 makes it simple. Just select your screw based on the thickness of your wood, set the stop collar using the drill bit setup block, pull the spring-loaded pin to adjust the drill-guide block, and then set the workpiece clamp.
Easy Thickness Adjustment
The Kreg Jig K5 offers our simplest workpiece-clamping system ever. The ratcheting clamp simply slides into place against your workpiece. Then, you lift the handle until you hear and feel two 'clicks' and that’s it. Now your clamp is set until you change to a different material thickness.
Support with Built-In Storage
Two large support wings can be attached to both sides of the K5 base. This way, long workpieces get solid support and won’t tip. Plus, there’s a large storage compartment under the lid in each wing where you can keep your drill bits, screws and accessories close at hand, but out of the way.
Swiveling Dust Collection
The Kreg Jig K5 comes with a removable dust port that swivels from side to side so that you can position it exactly where you want it, and then attach it to a standard vacuum house. This keeps your work area free of chips and debris, makes drilling easier, and prolongs drill bit life by reducing heat.

My review of the Dowelmax jig compares Kreg pocket hole joinery to the doweling system. Tests published by Dowelmax show doweled joints are stronger than pocket holes; however, a joint doesn’t need maximum strength, it needs enough strength to do the job. You don’t find battleship bulkheads in destroyers. Also, modern glues add tremendous strength to joints. I glued a 45-degree joint, made from pine 1.5 inches wide, all end grain, with Tightbond III, and I couldn’t pull the joint apart. There was NO reinforcement.
When it comes to speed and ease of cutting and assembly the Kreg system is superior to dowels. Both joints require square cuts where the joints come together, but the dowels require drilling two holes that must be exactly aligned. Any deviation, even 1/64th of an inch, can impair the joint. The Kreg system requires holes in only one board of the joint.
Then there is the glue. Dowels must be glued in, and after assembly the joint should be clamped and the glue must dry before moving forward. Glue can be used in pocket hole joinery but the screws pull the joint together not clamps. Clamping dowel joints can be a problem, because misalignment of the clamps can pull the joint out of square. Using dowels on frames can add hours to the project. First you glue up three sides of the frame and wait for the glue to dry. Then the panel is added. Then the final side of the frame is glued into place and once again the glue must dry. Using the Kreg jig the joint is ready as soon as the screws are in.
There are downsides. Pocket holes show, and if a blind joint is needed pocket holes often will not do. Inserts are made to disguise the pockets, and these can be creatively used as a design feature, but these inserts are noticeable and often not appropriate. If you are going to cut on a project after the joints are assembled the Kreg screws may be a problem. If a saw blade or router bit hits those screws that tool is gone. Kreg screws are hard, thus they can destroy a blade. Finally, the pocket hole joint must be well clamped before the screws are installed. The screws will pull the joint out of square if not tightly clamped; however, this isn’t all that hard and Kreg has several specialized clamps to help with the process.
Why not five stars? Because the K5 jig has failed me twice while clamping wood to the jig. The clamp broke once because a screw came loose under the clamp. The second problem occurred today when the clamp slipped back after pressure was applied. I took the jig apart and a small rubber ball fell out of the main body of the clamp. After examination I determined the ball was deformed somewhat, but other than that I couldn’t find anything wrong with the jig. The inside of the jig is mostly plastic, but the key part that holds the clamp’s position on the ribbed track is good quality metal (and the screws are metal). I put the jig back together and it works, but I don’t know for how long. The rubber ball seems to maintain the pressure that pushes the metal tongue into the ratcheting ribbed track. An odd set up. How long can a rubber ball maintain the needed pressure?
So, 4 stars for the jig. The system it supports is outstanding, but the jig itself seems to have been made in a less than outstanding manner. I cannot give a jig comprised of plastic and a rubber ball in critical locations 5 stars.
I'm glad I got the tool - I can't say that about every purchase I have made for my shop.
I highly recommend for those who want to build high quality projects and save a huge amount of time doing it.
New clamping system makes it easy to adjust it to the thickness of your material.
The vacuum port attachment is flimsy and falls off if your vacuum hose shifts.
You can no longer clamp the jig to your work surface.
I don't like the drill bit adjustment method. My experience is that it is not accurate. I set it on my K5 as instructed and compared it to the adjustment on my K4 and it was off almost 1/8".
