ATLANTA, Ga. - The Kreg Custom Pocket-Hole Plug Cutter makes it possible to take Kreg Joinery projects to the next level by giving you complete freedom to create your own custom plugs from any wood species. That means you can cut plugs from your own project stock to create plugs with color and grain that match your project better than has ever been possible before.
Plus, the Custom Pocket-Hole Plug Cutter allows you to create face-grain plugs that that blend in amazingly well. These face-grain plugs are easier to hide than conventional plugs that have visible end-grain.
In addition, the Custom Pocket-Hole Plug Cutter also accepts accessory bits (sold separately) that can cut plugs that fit Kreg Micro-Pocket pocket holes, as well as plugs to work with the Kreg Jig HD—a plug size that’s only possible using the Custom Pocket-Hole Plug Cutter.
The Custom Pocket-Hole Plug Cutter simply slips into a Kreg Jig in place of the normal drill guide block, and works with a Kreg Jig K5, K4, or even an older K3 model. That allows you to clamp your plug material in place and drill in the same way that is used for creating pocket holes. To create the plugs, just chuck the plug-cutting bit into any drill. This high-performance bit features a specially designed cutting tip that shears cleanly for a smooth, consistent plug. Fluting reduces heat and friction for better plugs and longer bit life, while a positive stop collar ensures perfect depth every time to produce accurately sized plugs. Once the plugs are drilled, they can easily be cut free using a band saw or hand saw.
The Custom Pocket-Hole Plug Cutter will be available in November of 2016 for $69.99 (US MSRP). The standard, Micro, and HD Custom Plug Cutting Bits will be available at the same time for $39.99 each (US MSRP).
