Kreg (K4MS) Kreg Jig Master System by Kreg
Ummed and Ahhed over this for quite a while.
First off there's the joints versus joining thing to get around.
So I reconciled that with the realisation that when working with MDF chipboard and PSE softwoods I'm probably not the fine cabinetmaker using secret half mitred dovetails I think I am.
Then there was this K4MS kit versus the newer K5.

Which to get?

The K5 has the built in storage for drill bits and support for wider boards and is Newer.
But the K5 kit also has the clamp lever on the jig pointing directly groinwards and what looks like a not so intuitive method for gauging collar setting / bit depth.

So, finally, I got this K4MS… Read more

Good Grab.
Not too runny.
Good for friction glue ups before clamps are applied.
Great nozzle and applicator makes it easy to apply in a zig zag before spreading further.
After use the nozzle then closes and is really easy to open again when you next need it and seems to keep the remaining glue useable. I've used half a litre of the stuff in June and July and the rest is still tip top.
This glue stays workable while clamping even complicated builds then excess is easy to wipe off with a damp cloth.
I have used this on hardwood, softwood and chipboard as well as melamine faced board and it is good on all of them.
Short clamp time is true in my experience,… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Three in One, 23 July 2014
Bought as a birthday present by my son for a friend of his, this was well received.

Part of the Lego Creator series and not one of the movie or comic book tie-in series that Lego produce; this set can be made into three different vehicles.

A helicopter, a racing car and a pod / speedboat racer.

Often the movie tie-in sets seem to sacrifice build stability for the final look of the model; so that they easily fall apart when playing with them.
Not so much this, so perhaps better for active play rather than simple building fun.
Easy to build for a ten year old, recommended in the 7 - 12 range.
Perhaps not as attractive as some of the Lego sets… Read more
