Ask any woodwork enthusiasts what is the most popular and familiar of tools to them and invariably the response will be the pocket hole jig. This is of course that tool which allows wood to be joined together through the pocket hole joints it makes. When the Kreg Pocket Hole Jig was introduced by the Kreg Tool Company which has long been headquartered in Huxley, Iowa this indispensable tool was truly revolutionized.
The Kreg Jig system basically employs a clamping jig which at a 15 degree angle carefully guides a specialized drill into producing in one piece of wood and clearance hole and in a second piece a hole that a special screw is held in. One can then simply and easily produce a concealed joint perfectly aligned by driving the screws in. Although not at all required many do decide to also use glue.
Over the years a variety of unique and special woodworking jigs have been produced by Kreg tools. Some of the more basic kits are meant for the occasional project and repair work. There are also a full selection of very complex kits available for those working for a living in shops or those constantly doing woodwork projects in the home.
Always when a new tool is introduced and immediately becomes popular other companies work feverishly to put out their copycat models. The Kreg company has long been known for putting out the very best pocket screw jig and pocket hole jig system anyone can buy. One simply has to go on Amazon and look over the comments made by the owners of these products that continuously offer the highest praise for them. It is really commonplace for people to go to Amazon to offer their praise after purchasing and using these products and invariably these reviews will be in the five star or highest of all range.
On Amazon a person will be able to find any Kreg jig they might be looking for and for that matter a complete line of Kreg tools. It’s funny that even those owners of various products produced by other companies which they are reasonably satisfied with will invariably state that if they were planning on doing extensive screw joinery type woodwork they would pay whatever was necessary to get the Kreg tools.
There is a model that is made and sold by a prominent manufacturer known for their inexpensive line of tools that gets little respect for their screw jig. This just reinforces the thought that it is so important how important it is for someone to make certain they do the research necessary before making any purchases. Sometimes it will help decide the wisdom involved in perhaps paying a bit more to be certain the right tool for the job is the one obtained.
The other good news with Kreg tools and the company that makes them is that they continuously are working to make certain their products remain the best there are.
