    Kreg Jig base

    Who doesn't love pocket holes? Well, I can think of a few people, but they are so fast and easy which makes them perfect for a lot of projects, but who wants to fumble about with clamping a jig to each spot you want a pocket hole? Who wants to shell out over $100 for one of the nice bench mounted pocket hole jigs? Not this guy.

    So, I built a base for the $40 Kreg R3 out of scraps I had laying around my shop and added an $8 toggle clamp to hold the material in place. The thing works slick now and the best part is that it's 100% reversible. Check out how I made this and save yourself some money and increase your productivity.

    I like the jig and would like to do the same set up but I have an old style Kreg jig with tapered sides. It is getting worn out so maybe it is time for a new one. Thanks for the posting.

    That nice, definitely on my ToDo list! The Kreg jig is such a pain to use.
