How hard can following a line with a circular saw be? It turns out that without a lot of practice, it can be a lot harder than the pros make it look. Hell, you even see pros using their speed square as a fence. There’s one problem with this method, though: Because of the width of the saw base, the cut line and where the square goes are two different places. So you play the game of trying to line up the blade with the cut line and the square with the fence all while holding the board, square, and saw.

Kreg may have a winner with their new Kreg Deck Kit™. Recently introduced, and to be available May 1st, the Deck Kit™ provides an easy way to build a new deck or refinish an old one, and without exposed fasteners. The Deck Jig™ has hardened steel drill guides that you use to drill holes in the edges of your deck boards with the Kreg step drill. Typically these holes are located to attached your deck boards to the joists using the center guides, but the jig also provides two other angled guides for attaching deck boards in “hard-to-reach areas.” Once the hole is drilled, a deck screw is inserted into the same drill guide and driven into the joist using a square driver bit with a stop collar.

This month Kreg made its Multi-Mark multi-tool available for sale. It joins a long line of measuring multi-tools of dubious value like the Level Best2, the Squangle, and the Multiscribe Pro to name a few.

Should you turn in your brass setup bars for a set of Kreg’s new precision router table setup bars?  Probably not, but they are an interesting alternative for setting up your table saw, router, and other tools.

While brass setup bars are just pieces of square or rectangular stock machined to tight tolerances, Kreg designed their bars with three different gauges on each bar to easily measure tool height, cut depth gauge, and the distance from tool to the fence. The new style of setup bars might be easier to use for woodworkers who aren’t accustomed to using brass setup bars; you can’t stack their bars to get different thicknesses.

With Kreg’s new Micro Pocket Drill Guide, you can fit two pocket holes on a board as little as 1″ wide and 1/2″ thick. The pluggable holes it creates are 25% smaller than standard pocket holes, allowing you to use shorter 3/4″ pan head screws.

If you own a Kreg Jig or Kreg Jig Master system, the Micro Pocket Drill Guide is fully compatible. They color the jig black so you can quickly differentiate it from the standard blue guides.

Included with the Micro Pocket Drill Guide are the 19/64″ Micro Pocket Drill Bit, Micro Pocket Depth Collar, and a few of the smaller pocket screws to get started. The kit usually retails for $50, but right now the only place we can find selling it is Highland Woodworking — they are offering it for $45 plus $9 shipping.

Recently Kreg introduced this quick-change bit set for use with its pocket screw jigs. Personally I’ve never understood why these quick-change kits are so popular, especially with key-less chucks becoming so commonplace, but if you’re a fan, now you can quickly switch between drilling pocket holes to screwing boards together.

Kreg gives both the drill bit and the driver 3/8″ hex shanks that snap into their quick-change chuck.  One supposed advantage of the hex-shanked drill bit is that it won’t slip like a round-shanked bit can — but is slippage really a problem in this size bit with modern chucks?

Since jamming a crisply mitered end of a board into a stop might damage it,  Kreg designed their “Perfect Miter” stop attachment to properly support and protect a mitered end that’s placed against it.

Kreg has created one of the leading systems for pocket joinery, and the Kreg Klamp table provides an assembly area specially designed for that purpose.  Klamp Blocks slide along the rails on two sides of the table and provide stops to rest your project against, and the Kreg Klamps keep your project resting against the blocks and hold joints in place while you assemble them.

The Kreg Jig Master System is the “fully loaded” version of the Kreg Joinery System, which helps you screw together butt joints. You drill and countersink your screw holes using the jig — then hold the pieces together with the clamping system as you join them with the screws.
