Item #
94% of 100

The Kreg Jig® K5 Master System incorporates the best features of every Kreg Jig® that has preceded it. Plus, it now includes a 3'' Automaxx Face Klamp as standard equipment. The front-mounted clamping mechanism eliminates the need to reach around the workpiece to close the clamp, and is adjusted without tools or adjusting nuts to match your workpiece thickness. Just slide the clamp into place, ''click'' the large clamp handle, and your jig is set to hold your workpiece tight every time. Plus, you get large support wings to hold your workpiece steady, and they have storage compartments inside. Add in a batch of other great features like a standard swiveling dust-collection port, spring-loaded stop for the Drill Guide Block, and, of course, the ability to remove the Guide Block for portable use, and you have, quite simply, the most advanced Kreg Jig® yet.


  • Front-mounted clamp handle makes clamping easy - no need to reach around the workpiece to close the clamp
  • Ratcheting clamp mechanism adjusts without tools
  • Quick-release pin holds drill block in place, and can't get lost
  • Storage wings provide built-in storage for bits, screws and accessories
  • Stop-collar setting block makes drill bit setup easy
  • Swiveling dust collection port accepts standard 1-1/4'' vacuum hose
  • Adjustable workpiece stop mounts on either side for easy, repeatable drilling
  • Comes fully assembled

Now Includes a Kreg® Automaxx™ 3'' Face Klamp™ as Standard Equipment:

Automaxx Face Klamps automatically adjust for any thickness of material up to 2-7/8'' thick, eliminating the need to readjust the clamp when changing stock. Whether you're clamping a 2x4 or a piece of veneer, one squeeze is all it takes to secure your work. The clamping force is easily set with a thumbscrew, and once set, stays the same for all materials.


  • Easy-to-regulate clamping pressure using a simple thumbscrew
  • Extra-large clamp faces spread clamp pressure evenly
  • Ergonomic padded grips prevent hand fatigue
  • Heavy-duty all-metal construction

Unbelievable easy to use and such a time saver. Had the smaller version and wish I had started with this one. Highly recommend it.

Worth it if you’ll use it
Easy to use, and the clamp system is much faster and easier to use on the K5 than other models - especially when making a lot of pocket holes.

Great investment
Project of built in for storage and a bench. The system worked great. I wish I had it this summer for my deck, had quite a few pockets on that and used a “c” clamp. Very tedious..

Awesome. Has made making a breeze.
Dennis H on Sep 27, 2016
When you need it done fast and strong it is hard to go wrong with the Kreg Jig. I have had the small unit for years and thought it was time to upgrade. I have not regretted it, I love it and it is just a great tool. Thanks Kreg and Rockler.

Trying a new method to join rails and styles for panels.
Rick C on Sep 4, 2016
Pocket joinery is very strong and easy to use. The master kit is worth it to avoid having to buy additional devices that you will almost certainly need. If working with 1/2 or 3/4 inch material, get the black micro kit with smaller bit and smaller screws.
