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.

For $150, I'd expect more stability and better materials -- not cheap, flexible plastic and metal joints that are wiggly and loose. Just check out my video and you'll see how this sawhorse/project center actual works and behaves when you move it, open it, close it, etc. in your shop.
As I mention in my video, there are plenty of positives here: this Kreg table has bench dogs and a nice vice that will allow you to clamp work to the table in various ways. It's also rather heavy with solid rubber feet, so won't move around on you. But there is a lot of wiggle and wobble in this folding work station, which is why I'm giving it three stars.
I just know that one blow from a hammer and the plastic top will break. And I know that the plastic lower folding tray will snap and crack just as easily.
NOTE that if you buy two of these, spending $300, you can create a larger table using some 2x4s and a sheet of cut-down plywood. So there are options here if you want to expand out.
The whole thing feels cheaply made. The biggest thing I noticed is what you DON'T get with this. There is no clamp($25)and there is no carrying case($10-15). There is no instructional DVD($10) and there are a lot less filler items too like screws and plugs($10) This unit should sell for about $80-$85 not $140. Do yourself a favor avoid the K5 and buy the K4 I love it when I pay more and get less.
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. This works well and makes clamping overnight a thing of the past.
You also don't get more than 10 screws of each type, good luck if you got as gift doing anything w/o a trip to the store. You would think for [...] bucks you'd get more than 10 screws of common sizes so you could actually open it and use it.
The base is 1" tall and you will need to make 1" spacers to hold panels at same height for better drilling accuracy, I had plenty of 3/4 but had to look for things to add to a true 1" the way wood is finished these days. How much would have 1" plastic add-on cost? Oh wait, this is Kreg, it would cost you $29.
The DVD shows white numbers on the jig but the one you buy will only have embossed measurements marked on it. Plan on spending time using paint to "finish" your expensive new jig, something they could do at the factory for the price they charge.
The case is a joke of sorts, only holds the jig and the other stuff flops around dulling the drill a bit of a mess inside.
The holes you make are huge and a far cry from professional looking biscuit or mortise and tenon, but of course that's the price of speed. You can get the fillers but be prepared to pay = again.
You pay again and again with Kreg, its a neat idea but they guy is making a fortune off everything.
It is well made and does work pretty good, with some alignment issues.
