Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WOODY BEST INVESTMENT EVER FOR WOODWORKING PROJECTS
Just bought this 2 weeks ago for some projects I wanted to make. I had plans for a bench that is made out of 2x4s and wanted a system to make the process easier. I would normally use lap joints or other methods of joining wood pieces together, but this takes a long time and has to be perfect. The bench only took me about 30 minutes to put together after cutting all the pieces to size. THIS HAS TO BE THE EASIEST WAY OF JOINING WOOD! Not to mention the joints being extremely strong, and add gorilla glue to make the joints even stronger. I also used the Kreg pocket-hole screws for the joints, which are basically cabinet screws. The Kreg screws are awesome, yet on the expensive side but well worth it.
If you are looking for an easy way to join wood together this is it. You will not be disappointed at all. I have already recommended this to my friends who are into woodworking. If you are thinking of getting this product, get the kit that includes everything.

There are cheaper alternatives to this.. however the Kreg jigs are better made and there are reasons why professional cabinet makers use them. Yes I can do mortise and tenon and I also have a biscuit joiner but this works too..
The best use of this product in project of mine have been for making table tops, and courter tops. With this you can make wide table tops using edge glued boards.. and every board is clamped together. Unlike using a biscuit joiner since they are all clamped individually the top stays flat in spite of pressure. Using clamps result in the top curving without bars on top and bottom to prevent it curving. This can make tops so tight you have to look very hard to even see joints. I have built everything from cabinets to vanity's, to dining table tops that seat 12 people.
Attached is an example of top of an end table hat I made. There are 8 separate boards in this top. Joints are very tight thanks to Kreg.. no clamps and all made from scrap wood. And that was just #2 construction lumber, not some fancy lumber. I could easily sell this table at a rustic furniture store for $200.. total cost to make $9.
Someone showed a broken bit in a photo.. I have drilled thousands of holes and never had an issue with a bit.
My biscuit joiner is collecting dust since I got this.

the drill bit is not strong enough the tip broke off after a few uses. the should be making them with a stronger material, I now have to buy a couple just in case one breaks, I was left in the middle of my now incomplete project.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ruby5 Where is the case?
I would give this a 5 star rating but the video is misleading because it says the jig master system comes with a case. It is shown in the video and I expected to get one with this purchase. Where is my case Home Depot and Kreg?

Had this for a week. Making a train table for my for grandkids for Christmas. This jig has made it so much easier and the table is really sturdy. This is my second project. The first was a work bench with no jig...wish I had it sooner.
