Kreg K-5 Pocket Hole Jig
The latest version of Kreg’s pocket-hole joinery system, the K5 incorporates an improved quick-release clamping fixture and a redesigned indexing pin that speeds switching from one stock thickness to another. Made from glass-reinforced nylon with a hardened steel drilling insert, the jig lets you center two holes 9/16″, 7/8″ or 1-7/16″ apart, depending on material width. The clamp has a toothed ratcheting mechanism that provides 1-3/8″ of coarse adjustment, allowing you to quickly snug the jaw up to the work by hand. A convenient front-mounted handle moves the non-marring jaw up to 3/4″ for final tightening or instant release. Removable 1-1/2″ thick stock-support wings help stabilize long workpieces, and have built-in storage compartments for drill and driver bits or other accessories. The spring-loaded indexing pin lets you position the drilling block to accommodate material from 1/2″ to 1-1/2″ thick in 1/8″ increments. An included snap-in shroud connects to any 1-1/4″ vacuum hose for easy debris clearance, with a pivoting outlet that lets you orient the hose to avoid obstruction. Also included are two micro-adjust workpiece positioning stops, a 3/8″ step drill bit and depth collar, a depth-collar setting gauge, a 6″ #2 square-recess driver, an assortment of screws and instructions. Additional 6-1/4″ long one-piece HSS step drill bits (3/16″ diameter by 5/8″ long pilot and 3/8″ diameter counterbore), a 2-1/2″ hose adapter and optional face-frame clamps (regular and self-adjusting) are available separately.
