Kreg Tool Introduces the Kreg Jig K5HUXLEY, IA - Kreg Tool Co., a leading manufacturer of tools and accessories for woodworkers and do-it-yourselfers, is proud to announce the launch of the Kreg Jig K5, the latest generation of our popular Kreg Pocket Hole Jig. The all-new K5 incorporates the best features of every Kreg Jig that came before with it with a batch of new upgrades that you’ve never seen before.

Those features start with an all-new clamping mechanism that has a front-mounted handle and adjusts to different workpiece thicknesses without tools or adjusting nuts. Adjusting for different thicknesses is accomplished, instead, by simply sliding the clamping mechanism into position, lifting the front-mounted handle, and then pushing it back down. This quickly and easily sets the spring-loaded clamp to hold tight without working loose over time. Resetting for a different thickness only requires repeating the same simple steps. Rubber padding on the clamp face prevents workpiece marring.

Adjusting the K5 is simplified further thanks to a quick-release Drill Guide Block, as well as a new setting block for the drill bit stop collar. In addition to the included standard 3-hole Drill Guide Block, the Kreg Jig K5 is also fully compatible with the Kreg Micro Pocket Drill Guide and Kreg Jig HD.

The K5 supports long or wide workpieces easily thanks to a pair of removable extension wings that double as storage compartments for drill and driver bits, Kreg screws and plugs, and other K5 accessories. Add in an adjustable workpiece stop, a swiveling dust-collection port, and hex-shank drill and driver bits, and it’s easy to see that the Kreg Jig K5 truly is the most advanced Kreg Jig yet.

Kreg Jig K5 buyers also get access to SkillBuilder videos that teach them how to get the most out of the jig, and they receive exclusive free downloadable project plans so they can start building with the K5 right away.
