Rated 5 out of 5Â by MisterG Excellent Value - Incredible Time Saver
Works every time and so easy to use.
What is even better - in comparison to a competing manufacturer - individual parts are available even though Home Depot may not stock all of them at any given time.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by pmikejunot Great jig, terrible case!
I borrowed a friends older Kreg model and it worked great. It's a simple, easy to understand set up, and accurate. Upon finishing my project, I purchased this model and an assortment of screws. I used it for joining 5/4 boards. Lining up the boards is a little trickier than the video, but this type of joinery is easier than biscuits or dowels. I really love this system...I wish I had bought this years ago. My only complaints with the Kreg K4MS (as well as the older model) is the lousy case. I don't remember owning a tool with such a cheap, non-functional case such as this. The parts of the jig don't have secure, dedicated spots resulting in great difficulty closing the case. My other complaint is the 6" square driver included with the jig is a size S3. The 3" was the standard S2. This has to be a packaging mistake-all Kreg screws that I have (sizes 1" through 2 1/2") are S2 heads. I have no explanation of why they would include an S3 in the kit. I had to purchase a 6" S2 at Home Depot, as it is necessary when driving screws into thicker stock. The jig itself deserves 5 stars, but the cheap, thinly molded case brings down the rating considerably!

It took 2 minutes to assemble and 2 more to figure out the correct measurements for drill bit depth and jig height. Heavy duty plastic parts hold up well. The only down side I've found is that it only comes with about a dozen screws of various lengths and thread size, requiring you to buy their over priced, specialized, Kreg screws. Regular zinc wood screws come in 250ct boxes and hold the pocket joints together perfectly at about half the price.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jbreitmun Great alternative to time consuming joinery!
I recently bought this system at my local HD as an alternative to hand joinery. I must be honest and say that I balked at this system being an option for me to use in the past. In order to satisfy some of my clients needs for time and cost constraints I can now offer them something a little more in their range. The joints seem nice and solid and it really couldn't be a more simpler set-up. It will never beat out a nice well made mortise and tenon joint for clean looks but is an affordable solution for alternative work. You should decide what size material you will most likely be working with, identify the screw length needed for that material size, and get a box or two extra. This system comes with a variety of small sample bags of screws but they quickly run out as it is only about 5-10 of each size.
