How to Use a Kreg System

    • 1). Set the depth stop collar on the drill bit for the wood thickness you are using. The Kreg jig system has a drill bit indicator built into the jig. Use the Allen wrench provided to adjust the stop collar to the correct depth indicated on the jig.

    • 2). Adjust the drill guide to the thickness of wood you are using. The guide has a thickness indicator built into the jig. Adjust by loosening the set screw and moving the drill guide to the correct setting, then tightening the guide in place at that setting.

    • 3). Adjust the clamp for the thickness of material you are using. Loosen or tighten the plunger nut to securely hold the material in place when the clamp is engaged. Use a 1/2-inch wrench for this step.

    • 4). Place the material in the clamp where you want to place the pocket screw holes. Clamp the material in place with the built in clamp of the jig.

    • 5). Drill the holes into the material for the pocket screws. Use an electric drill and the drill bit from step one. The stop collar will rest against the drill guide when the hole is drilled to the correct depth.

    • 6). Clamp the two boards in place after all the pocket holes have been drilled. Use the Kreg pocket hole clamps to hold the boards in place until you screw them together.

    • 7). Place the pocket screw in the pocket screw hole and screw it down with the long square drive bit provided with the jig system. Use a cordless screwdriver for this step. A pocket screw is a specially designed wood screw used to securely fasten butt-jointed wood.
