The Home Improver’s Solution for Building with Wood
With the Kreg Jig® R3, you can build bookcases, shelves, and storage projects for your home. It's also great for creating custom built-ins, and countless other home improvement projects. Plus, the Kreg Jig® R3 can be used portably to make lasting repairs around your home.

Clamp Pad Adapter
The Kreg Jig® R3 includes a Clamp Pad Adapter, which allows the R3 to be easily secured to your workpiece using any standard bar clamp, C-clamp, or Kreg® Face Clamp. For faster and more repeatable pocket holes, choose a Kreg® Face Clamp.

Material Thickness Setting
From thin drawer boxes and craft projects to stout 2x4s, this Kreg Jig® R3 can handle just about anything. Independent positioning sliders feature nine depth settings, allowing you to easily join materials from 1/2" to 11/2" thick in 1/8" increments.

Organized Carrying Case
A compact yet durable carrying case is included so that you'll always have a safe place to store your Kreg Jig® R3 and organize all of the accessories it comes with. As a bonus, a depth-collar gauge has been molded into the case for handy reference.

Dual Positioning Sliders
Dual positioning sliders help you properly set your jig based on the thickness of material you are working with. Simply depress the button on the side of the jig and move the sliders so your material thickness is aligned with the arrow on the jig body. It’s that easy!

Glass-Reinforced Nylon Body
The blue body of every Kreg Jig® is made from a heavy-duty, glass-reinforced nylon. This composite material offers the resiliency and flexibility you need without sacrificing the strength and durability Kreg customers have come to expect.

Superior Angle
Unlike competing jigs with a shallower angle of approach, the Kreg Jig® R3 features an optimized drilling angle specifically designed to increase driving efficiency and minimize the overall size of the pocket hole. The result is a compact pocket hole, less than 11/2" in size.

Wood-Chip Relief
Sometimes the simplest things are the easiest to overlook. The Kreg Jig® R3 includes one wood chip relief hole for every drill guide hole, designed to keep the drill bit clear of excess wood chips, minimizing drill-torque, increasing the longevity of your drill bits, and allowing you to complete a perfect pocket hole in just one plunge.

Hardened-Steel Core
Kreg® drill guides are subject to direct contact with the drill bit every time a pocket hole is created. The core of every Kreg Jig® R3 features hardened-steel, which carries a lifetime guarantee. The Kreg Jig® R3’s core shrouds the bit and supports the workpiece through 100% of the drill-stroke. The end result is minimal bit deflection, reduced tear-out, and a clean, pluggable pocket hole fit for finish work.

Great product, many practical uses

I bought this for a simple project at home but found that I'm using it more than I thought I would. This is a great product. I highly recommend it.

not perfect, but pretty good

This is a very versatile tool for many jobs. I used mine to build a set of cupboards and the railing for a deck, I f you get one, get the faceframe clamp. It makes the jig much easier to use. unfortunately, the tabs that attach the clamp to the jig are flimsy and broke off mine, making it a pain to put i place now, otherwise five stars would have been in order.

Just what I needed!

I LOVE MY KREG!! Seriously this thing has stepped up my game by leaps and bounds. Being disabled and on a very limited fixed income I went with this model, although if I ever win the lottery I'll step up, but I do not for one second regret the purchase. In fact I would go so far as to say the only way this set could be improved would be if it came with a clamp!

One of the star performers in the Project Kit. Built in storage bench for the new reading nook? No problem, this jig makes it all come together with ease. Only area for improvement, the driving bit could be sturdier. I'm already on my 3rd bit in very little use.

After struggling with my projects, this tool was a god-send. My friends are getting tired of me waxing poetic on this smaller, but absolutely necessary tool. Instructions are easy to follow, and it works every time regardless of the thickness of your project. Thank you, you are a lifesaver.
