Kreg R3 Pocket Hole System
This device works exactly as it is supposed to. It is easy to use and can be configured for almost any type of pocket hole scenario. I thought the price was fair for what the device is capable of accomplishing. It seems to be of very good quality and has a really nice case in which to store it.

This thing was awesome for building my deck rails. I was able to make the screws mostly hidden.

Popular jig. I don't often build cabinets. This might come in handy for other types of joinery. Inexpensive, a tool I won't use often.

The other Kreg R3 Pocket System has a lot more quantity, but this Kreg R3 Pocket System will work just as well for a much better price. Even if you purchase things separately as your working on your projects it's not nearly as expensive on your pocketbook and it fits the budget better. Besides this is a Christmas present for my husband.

Doug K on Jun 7, 2018
is the tip of the drill bit supposed to come out the end?
charlie n on Sep 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The tip of the drill bit is not supposed to come out through your material. This allows for the self tapping wood screws to have some threads in the piece with the pocket holes making the joint pull tight.
I am making a replacement pole for an aluminum Christmas tree. Will this work on a wooden pole? I will need to drill 90+ holes.
Kenna H on Nov 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Depending the diameter of the pole. If it too small, you may experience difficulty mounting the jig
Does pocket hole construction need to be glued?
George Z on Jan 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Kreg company says it's not needed. But I would glue to make a stronger project.
Is the carrying case that is mentioned that comes with the Kreg R3 Pocket Hole System Item #22708 grey hard plastic or some other material?
Paula M on Nov 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The case provided is hard plastic with calibration/setting guides molded in for the depth-stop on the drill bit. It has a nice positive snap-lock latch that seems like it will hold up well.
what size screws for 3/4" plywood ?
Myrddin on Apr 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: According to the Screw Length Selection Chart, 3/4" material thickness should use 1 1/4" screw length.
what is the difference between r3 and r4?
gerry s on May 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: r3 costs $45 uses a Kreg clamp (not supplied) to clamp jig to material. Has 2 3/8" pocket holes with 7/8" spacing.
r4 costs $100 uses a toggle clamp to clamp jig to material and a another clamp to attach jig to bench top. Has 3 3/8" pocket holes with 9/16, 7/8" and 1 7/16 spacing.
Either use material from 1/2" to 1 1/2" thick and can center on 9 different thickness material.
Either can do the same job.
When joining a wide mitre with one screw at each corner should the screws be on the same board or one on each side of the mitre?
Ozzie on Dec 12, 2017

Either way will work just fine.

I am building a dining room table, and I am using pocket holes to attach the legs and aprons to the actual top. Something got tweaked when I glued the apron to the legs so I have a slight gap in between the apron and top. My question is I'm concerned to screw the top to the apron with pocket holes in fear of cracking the wood. Any suggestions?
Shnewmyer on Sep 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In an application like this we recommend using pocket hole screws like you are referring to. However, once your screws are tight we recommend taking just a square drive screw driver and loosening them about a 1/4 turn. This will allow for movement from the expansion and contraction of the wood over time minimizing the chance of warping.
Do you make a KREG tool for 4x4s?
Billy Joe L on Jun 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: While making a drill press stand, I used the Kreg tool to drill holes for screws to attach 4x4 Legs to the top. The top was a rectangle frame made of 4x4s.. it worked great.The kreg tool is put on the side of a piece of wood so the size of the wood does not matter, provided the wood is thick, enough to accomodate the angle needed for the drill hole crated by the Kreg tool. MY legs became strongly attached to the top thanks to the kreg too.
Can I do picture frames with the kreg jig R3?
Antonio M on Apr 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can, instead of the normal 45 degree corners just end put them then fasten with Kreg Jig. Use it either on the back or front for decoration, using contrasting wood plugs
What is the width of this jig?
William H on Feb 18, 2018
