Great collection at a GREAT price!
on November 27, 2012
This is a must-have collection for anyone remodeling a kitchen. I am completely remodeling my kitchen, building all new cabinets and a 5'x8' island for my wife. The Kreg pocket holes are an EXCELLENT joinery method that makes creating high-quality and extremely strong joints an absolute snap! You will find yourself building cabinets much faster and with absolute precision in no time.
The included right-angle clamp is great and allows you to insert one end into a drilled pocket hole while the end with the flat head holds the target board securely in place. This is extremely helpful and saves work and time.
The included screw-selector wheel selects the proper screw for your project by allowing you to select the thickness of your top and bottom boards and then displaying the proper jig, drill, and screw for the job.
You get various depth-stop tools to secure to your drill bit to ensure that you don't drill too deep and ruin your stock. These should be adjusted using scrap wood and getting the proper depth before working on your actual stock.
This kit contains the following jigs:
1 Kreg Jig K3 with front-side clamping
1 Kreg Jig HD for heavy-duty construction jobs
1 Micro-Pocket Drill Guide
1 Kreg Jig Mini
In addition to the jigs, you also get:
1 Right Angle Clamp
1 large clamp
1000+ Kreg Screws (various sizes for various projects)
Dust collection attachment
Screw Selector Wheel
Trim Carpentry DVD
A skillbuilder training DVD
An EXCELLENT and durable toolbox.
I finished watching both DVDs that came with the set and they are very useful and demonstrate uses for pocket hole jigs in various situations. I would HIGHLY recommend watching the DVDs, as you will get a good idea of how to use the clamps and joinery method. There are also instructional sections on things that you probably already know how to do, but it is always fun to watch a professional who is very good at their job build things.
Do yourself a favor and watch the DVDs!
BOTTOM LINE: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
