    A:  What does this have to do with The Jig ???

    by|Jan 1, 2024

    A:  Made in China. I don't recommend you purchase this jig because it is made of cheap plastic. The jig slipped off my hand while positioning the self centering post to drill a hole on the edge of a board. The jig fell to the floor and one of the self centering post broke. This happened on my first attempt to drill a hole and the handling of the jig with the left hand and drill on the right hand can be awkward to firmly place the jig on the edge of the board (opposite for left hand people).

        Answer This Question

        A:  It is really easy, but instead of me explaining to you , there are two or three you tube videos (including Milescraft web site) that goes over how to use the tool. It works very well and I have used it many times.

              Q:Does this allow me to drill holes at 45degrees?
              by|Jun 5, 2020
              5 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  Not out of the box, no. You could make a 45 degree block to add under the jig and this would work but be a pain. The kit comes with centering pins so you could cut a 45 degree wedge and drill in and then use the pins to mark the other board. That also sounds like a pain and you wouldn't be using this jig. You could cut the wood at 45 degrees and be very careful with drilling depth and that would achieve your goal but the holes are drilled at 90 degrees with this jig. Still go for it this jig is great. If I were you I would use a different joint for that application and go with mitered splines or maybe pocket hole joinery (check youtube).

              A:  No, this will not allow for doweling at 45 degree angle.

                A:  Can't be done with this tool with accuracy. Maybe Kreg pocket screw joinery will work depending on the pieces your working with.

                  1 found this answer helpful

                  A:  No. The jig must be held flat against the drilled wood. Cannot handled angles.

                  A:  I don't believe so unless you set up some sort of jig set at 45 degrees for both pieces to be joined.

                    misaligned hole to attach knob
                    I'm eager to test this out to make small does. one of the holes to screw the knobs into is holes misaligned, so I'll need a replacement.

                      doweling jig
                      I tried to make my own jig with just wood and it did not work that good. I bought this jig and it works a lot better. It is hard to hold the jig on the edge of wood, but most of my edge drilling comes out on center. Have to take your time to get the jig on square and then hold it there firmly. Then try your best to put the drill straight in the self centering insert. Start the drill up and try your best to go straight down thru the insert and generally it comes out good. When gluing edge to edge, if I notice one hole off center, I usually just forget about that one hole and drill another hole about an inch away and try hard to get that one on center. Or make the hole that is not centered oversize, trying to move it closer to center. Test fit before gluing.

                        Tools Fail at Their Weakest Point
                        This tool is easy to use and I was having great success doweling joints for a furniture project. Unfortunately, the brass guide bushings are set into a plastic body and before I had even exhausted the supply of 3/8" dowel pegs that came with the kit, the bushing separated from the plastic putting an end to setting any 3/8" pegs. If you don't intend to use this for setting more than the 16 - 24 pegs of any given size that come in the kit, you are probably fine, but in my experience, the materials, specifically, the plastic, just can't take more use than that.

                          Works great! I used this to assemble a frame for shelving to go behind a full-length mirror and it worked well even though my cuts were not exactly square. My husband needs a better cutting tool for cabinet work than his circular saw (see how it's his fault), but the jig still worked to get the holes square in the end of the board. I had a little trouble lining them up exactly on the second board but I got better with practice and better clamping to avoid movement. Consider that I'm a 75 yr-old woman and still found this easy and fun to use. Photos are of the top of the frame and you can see a small gap at the corner where the cut was off. They are connected well, though, and the glue included in the kit helps hold it securely. Very pleased with my first effort at peg joining. The shelves are placed on pins with holes made by the Kreg Shelf Pin Jig and the frame and shelves are all perfectly level.

                          There is a bit of a learning curve to using it for the various sizes and positions. It worked well for what I was using it for which was placing a top on a nightstand. For the price, I would recommend this tool to add to your arsenal.

                          Great design concept and included lots stuff in the pack. It self centers but could not line up the holes adequately. Also, for edge joins, needs a mechanism to ensure the holes drilled 90deg from edge surface. I tried very hard to edge-join two 10” boards into one panel. Got 1/32” unflattness disappointed.
