About This Product

The Kreg Pocket-Hole Jig Mini is good for very specific applications where the smallest jig possible is required. The simplistic design includes the hardened-steel drill guide of the other jigs, but does not include a reference fence, so material thickness adjustments must be made manually. Unlimited Material Thickness: The Kreg Pocket-Hole Jig Mini is the only Kreg Pocket-Hole Jig that does not include a positioning fence. This fenceless design allows you to make precise angle and stock depth adjustments as needed, making the Mini the most position able jig available. Wood-Chip Relief Hole: With the Pocket-Hole Jig Mini, you don't have to keep removing the drill bit to clean out the hole. A wood-chip relief hole in the jig gives the removed material a place to go, so you can keep on drilling. Plug-Setting Feature: If you decide to conceal or decoratively accent your pocket holes with our solid wood pocket hole plugs, the Mini's plug setting feature is the fastest, easiest, and safest way to do so. Hardened-Steel Drill Guides: Precise pocket holes are a guarantee with the Pocket-Hole Jig Mini because the hardened-steel drill guide keeps the bit from deflecting as it hits the workpiece.

Highlights

  • Single-drill guide design
  • Unlimited material thickness and width positioning
  • Hardened steel drill guide with lifetime manufacturer warranty
  • Glass-reinforced nylon jig body
  • For small- and medium-sized workpieces
  • Fenceless design for precise adjustments to angle and stock depth

Q:I’m debating on getting this mini kit or the R3 jig kit. It appears that they both can do they same thing but maybe the R3 just offers more features? Has anyone used both of them? I would use it for DIY and furniture builds or projects.

Answer This Question

A:  Pretty much. The whole point is to put a whole and it does just that.

by|Jul 14, 2023

    A:  I used the mini exclusively for years and I have owned the r3 more recently. The mini is allowed to use because you have to use something to get the spacing right unless you're using 3/4 inch stock. You also have to measure the drill stop placement. The r3 makes both of those things easier. If you are only using it occasionally for a project here and there the mini will work for you but if you can afford the r3 it does make things easier.

    A:  The mini should work as well as the R3 if you do your measurements correctly. I have the mini (I have not used the R3) and have completed many DIY and furniture builds. The mini clamps fine and can fit all sorts of tight places.

      A:  Thanks for the question. The Kreg Mini will make the same pocket-holes as the Kreg R3. However, the Kreg R3 will have built in stops that will allow for repeatable set up.

        A:  THE MINI JIG WORKS PERFECTLY, AND LETS YOU POSITION YOUR HOLES WHEREVERYOU WANT. I LOVE THIS TOOL

          A:  Holly - It's an 1/8" Allen wrench.

          by|Feb 7, 2020

          A:  Hello, I am sorry to hear that your Allen wrench was lost. The Allen wrench is 1/8 of an inch. Also, if you contact Kreg's Technical Support at 1800-447-8638 the could send out a replacement for you Thanks!

          by|Feb 7, 2020

            A:  Mine works with 1/8 . Purchased a year ago.

            by|Feb 10, 2020

              A:  The allen wrench is a 1/8" for both the mini and the standard stop collars.

              by|Feb 9, 2020

              A:  3mm should do it

                Q:is the drill bit the same for all kreg jig sets

                Answer This Question

                A:  Yes, the drill bit included in this set is the standard size Kreg bit. It’s just the jig that’s mini.

                  A:  I have the Kreg mini and K-4 jigs. Both provide 3/8" bits (pictured) however one had a hex drive whereas the other was a round shaft. Otherwise they are the same with an adjustable collar used for setting the depth of cut. For my use I created a spreadsheet (and related equation) useful for determining offset to use with varying material thicknesses. Others have done the same and these can be found on line on Kreg User group forums.

                  A:  Yes it is

                  by|Oct 14, 2019

                  A:  . You can use the same but with the other jigs too. If you're just looking for a replacement bit those are some separately and I believe for a small fee you can send in an existing bit to Kreg for sharing.

                  by|Oct 13, 2019

                  A:  The bit works with all Kreg pocket hole jigs except the Micro Pocket Drill guide.

                        A:  Yes, this model can be used with other screws.

                        by|Mar 8, 2019

                          A:  Thanks for the question. We only recommend using the Kreg Brand Screws with the Kreg Pocket Hole Technology due to them being designed specifically to be used with the system.

                              A:  I have with one point they must be of a very similar design. DO NOT USE flush style screws. They will split the wood. This said I am sure the manufacturer Kreg does not recommend it.

                              The jig worked very well. I wish I purchased one sooner. Only thing I don't like is I see some peices of blue plastic when drilling no matter how careful I am. It looks like the larger jigs are metal the whole way where the bit is inserted.

                              My gymnast daughter requested I make her an over-stretcher that she saw on you-tube which required some 45 degree bracing. While I already had the Kreg K4 jig which is great for connecting table aprons that require connecting 2 pieces at 90 degrees, I decided to get this smaller jig so that I could use pocket holes to neatly connect the 45 degree braces. With a little thought the simpler design made it easier to adapt the jig to my specific project.

                              I bought this just to experiment with pocket holes. The jig does a fine job but clamping and reclamping to your material is time consuming. The product is fine for a quick pocket hole but I would invest in their jig that has three holes and can be stationed on your work area for larger projects.

                              Excellent for small projects. I just finished an outside vanity that I built and it was a little cumbersome to position each hole to be drilled using a hand held vice. For large projects I would suggest the Kreg tool with the clamp.

                              It's a bit pricey, but it's a much better deal than buying the drill bit by itself and that's what I really needed. The plastic is high density and high quality and won't wear quickly. The hex shank bit broke on me on the Kreg K4 kit, which is why I purchased this. Kreg replaced the bit for free as I explained to them the bit did not see long-term or rough use. I give it 4 stars solely because of the price. There is comfort in knowing these products are designed and built in the USA.

                                If you need to join particle board or plywood such as in building cabinets, pocket screws are a great option where other joinery is harder to do or produces inferior results. This little kit is a great way to get started at a very modest price and is quite versatile for joining wood from 1/2 inch to 1-1/2 thick in a variety of combinations. In virtually all cases you screw holes are hidden so the end product looks great. There are many videos on YouTube demonstrating things you can make and how to use pocket screw joinery. If you only have one project or two a year this may be the only kit you will want or if you want to evaluate pocket screw joinery before making a bigger investment then this is the way to go. The drill bit can be used with the more expensive guides should you get them later. Even though I have a biscuit joiner I still find places where this works better or where I use the two in conjunction with one another. One other item you should get is a clamp by Kreg to hold the guide in place unless you have something appropriate. Their clamp is made for this job and is quick release like vice grip pliers. Spend a few minutes checking out all the benefits of pocket screw joinery and you will find out why cabinet makers use them as well.

                                Pretty impressive little product
                                Just put together a 12' long window seat and did not have this before and used a myriad of L brackets. I saw the infomercial on TV for the big one so i decided i'd give the small one a try. This thing is GREAT! I will be using it on my next project and possibly buying the larger jig.

                                This kit can get you into pocket-hole joinery at a minimal cost, assuming you already own a powerful clamp, such as an Irwin Quick-Grip, which can be used for a multitude of other tasks. If you're doing a production run of 50 or more holes, I'd recommend the $99 kit, with the cam-clamp jig, which will speed things up a lot.

                                Price is a seller, small but works well
                                This pocket jig needs to be clamped down well to keep it in place. It makes a nice slot for a screw to join two pieces of wood while hiding the screw. Apron can be adjusted for different depths. Excellent product saves you $$$ compared to more expensive jigs and works well.
