Features at a Glance
The Home Improver's Solution
The Kreg Jig R3 is a great way to get started building with Kreg Joinery. It's a good choice if you build a few projects each year, or if most of your projects are smaller in scale. Plus, the R3 is handy to have on hand for making repairs around the home.
Clamp Pad Adapter
The Kreg Jig R3 includes a Clamp Pad Adapter, which allows the R3 to be easily secured to your workpiece using any standard bar clamp, C-clamp, or Kreg Face Clamp. For faster and more repeatable pocket holes, choose a Kreg Face Clamp.
Material Thickness Setting
From thin drawer boxes and craft projects to stout 2x4s, this Kreg Jig R3 can handle just about anything. Independent positioning sliders feature nine depth settings, allowing you to easily join materials from 1/2 inches to 1 1/2 inches thick in 1/8 inches increments.
Secure the R3 in Tight Spots
In certain, restrictive situations where the use of a clamp is not possible, the Kreg Jig R3 can be secured in place with a common wood screw. All you have to do is drive the screw through the mounting hole on the top of the jig. This application is demonstrated in the photo.
Fix Broken Wood Joints Fast
A Kreg Jig is the perfect tool for repairing broken drawers, beat up bookcases, wobbly chairs, fractured frames, and so much more—without messy glue or nails. You’ll be amazed how easy it is to fix what you have—instead of having to replace it—using the Kreg Joinery System.
Organized Carrying Case
A compact yet durable carrying case is included so that you'll always have a safe place to store your Kreg Jig R3 and organize all of the accessories it comes with. As a bonus, a depth-collar gauge has been molded into the case for handy reference.
The blue body of every Kreg Jig is made from a heavy-duty, glass-reinforced nylon. This composite material offers the resiliency and flexibility you need without sacrificing the strength and durability Kreg customers have come to expect.
Unlike competing jigs with a shallower angle of approach, the Kreg Jig R3 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 inches in size.
Wood Chip Relief
The Kreg Jig R3 includes one 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 just one plunge.
The core of every Kreg Jig features hardened-steel, which carries a lifetime guarantee. The R3’s core shrouds the bit and supports the workpiece through 100% of the drill-stroke for minimal bit deflection, reduced tear-out, and a clean, pluggable pocket hole.

Echoing a previous review, the tables are not perfectly flat. The leafs sagged down, just a bit. I was able to make them flatter by inserting 2 1/2-in by 3/4-in shims underneath the brackets that attach the table support arms to the underside of the tables. I used a straight edge to measure the gaps with a feeler gauge, cut the shims to the width of the gaps from maple on a bandsaw, and drilled the holes in the shims for the mounting screws (the photo is from before I drilled the holes). The three shims I needed were pretty thin - 0.035, 0.045,, and 0.054-inch. If you do this, be careful not to over-tighten the screws...they thread into plastic. No need for the screws to be tight. The overall table flatness is now within about 0.01-in most places, and 0.03-in where one of the leafs is not totally flat along its length.
I would expect that the small out-of-flatness that I corrected wouldn't matter much. I'm just fussy.
The overall construction is quite robust. I don't expect anything to break with normal use. And a shout out to Viking Mountain Toolworks, the seller; they answered their phone quickly, and were very helpful with a question.
I just finished using this product in a project where I built 4 drawers from scratch that I installed as pull-outs in a kitchen end cabinet (please see attached picture).
I used 12 pocket hole screws to hold each drawer together - 3 on each long side and 1 on each short side from the bottom of the drawer, and 1 on each end of the long sides to hold them tight against the short sides. The pockets for the screws holding the sides together are visible in the attached picture. The jig is small and versatile enough that I was able to add pockets to my workpiece even while it was partially assembled.
This is an excellent product, and in my opinion, a much better solution to joining wood than nails and wood glue. First of all, you can easily undo the join by taking the screws out, which is not really an option when using nails/glue. Furthermore, from my personal experience, pocket holes with quality screws in them create a much stronger join.
The kit seems to be holding up well. I've put 80+ pockets into various types of wood so far, and the pilot drill is still sharp to the touch. The jig itself continues to work perfectly, and the metal sleeves inside do not seem to be wearing out.
I attached a few of the many projects I've built as a result of owning this jig: cabinets for my stealth camper van, and a media console for my living room.
