Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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."
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.

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.
Top Customer Reviews
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!
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.Read more ›
My one bit of advice, make sure you have a very strong clamp otherwise the jig will slide sideways when you start drilling.
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)
