Make your Kreg Jig® K5 even better by upgrading to a Master System.
The Kreg Jig® K5 Master System combines the Kreg Jig® K5 with premium accessories to make it even easier to get started building with Kreg Joinery. Accessories include a 3" Wood Project Clamp with Automaxx® auto-adjust technology, a Portable Base for building on the go, and downloadable plans for six great projects.

The new 3" Wood Project Clamp features auto-adjust technology that simplifies project construction by allowing you to clamp workpieces of varying thicknesses without ever having to adjust the clamp. That makes it the perfect companion to the ratcheting, tool-free workpiece clamp on the Kreg Jig® K5.

Adding the Portable Base gives you yet another use for your Kreg Jig® K5—simplified setup for portable building and making repairs. See the Portable Base in action in this Quick Tip video.

Plus, the Kreg Jig® K5 Master System includes step-by-step downloadable plans for six great home projects so that you can get started building right away.

Advanced Features for Building with Wood
The Kreg Jig® K5 incorporates the best features of every Kreg Jig® that came before, with innovative upgrades you’ve never seen. That starts with a clamping mechanism that you can quickly adjust, without tools or adjusting nuts, to match your workpiece thickness. Just slide the clamp into place, “click” the large front-mounted clamp handle, and your jig is set to hold your workpiece tight every time.

You’ll find large support wings to hold your workpiece steady—plus, they open up to provide handy storage for bits and accessories. Add in a batch of other great features, like a 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.

Fast, Simple Setup
When you’re ready to get started building, the Kreg Jig® K5 makes it simple. Just select your screw based on the thickness of your wood, set the stop collar using the drill bit setup block, pull the spring-loaded pin to adjust the drill guide block, and then set the workpiece clamp.

Easy Thickness Adjustment
The Kreg Jig® offers our simplest workpiece clamping system ever. The ratcheting clamp simply slides into place against your workpiece. Then, you lift the handle until you hear and feel two “clicks,” and that’s it. Now your clamp is set until you change to a different material thickness.

Support with Built-In Storage
Two large support wings can be attached quickly and easily to both sides of the K5 base. This way, long workpieces get solid support and won’t tip. Plus, there’s a large storage compartment under the lid in each wing where you can keep your Kreg drill bits, screws, and accessories close at hand, but out of the way.

Swiveling Dust Collection Port
The Kreg Jig® K5 comes with a removable dust port that swivels from side to side so that you can position it exactly where you want it, and then attach it to a standard vacuum house. This keeps your work area free of chips and debris, makes drilling easier, and prolongs drill bit life by reducing heat.

3 Project Plans Included
Get started building with these step-by-step, downloadable project plans. You get three great plans, each with two design variations.

Reviews for "Kreg Jig® K5 Master System"

Average Review:


The clamp on the K5 is very poor and the ratchet slips. The 2 clicks that are supposed to happen when clamping, don’t happen. So I end up using another clamp before drilling. Unlike other great Kreg tools this was disappointing.

missing something

i just got the k5 and was going through it and i noticed that for some strange reason they only put the wood thickness on one side instead of both sides. whats up with that? depending on your location it could be a small inconvenience.

easiest pocket holes you'll ever make

Grabbed this for a few DIY home projects and have now used it on everything from the kitchen cabinets doors and frames, to decking and fence projects. The versatility is great and the master system has almost everything you need to get going on a project. Worth the additional investment.

This is by far one of the best tools I ever bought! The learning curve was so easy and I had my new bathroom vanity prepped and put together in less than 1 hour. I posted the photos on facebook and so many people loved the look. Thanks for making a great product that I will be using for many years to come! -Dan

DO IT Yourself Dream

I have completed about 5-6 projects using this jig and I have had great results. I use the HD and the Micro drill blocks in it as well the Dust collection port does come off easily but has worked pretty well. The clamp gave me some problems during my last project but I found out a screw had come loose. She is now just as strong as she was the day I got her. Great product. Maybe I will get the foreman one day!
