The latest version of Kreg's pocket-hole joinery system, the K5 incorporates an improved quick-release clamping fixture and a redesigned indexing pin that speeds switching from one stock thickness to another. Made from glass-reinforced nylon with a hardened steel drilling insert, the jig lets you center two holes 9/16", 7/8" or 1 7/16" apart, depending on material width. The clamp has a toothed ratcheting mechanism that provides 1 3/8" of coarse adjustment, allowing you to quickly snug the jaw up to the work by hand.
A convenient front-mounted handle moves the non-marring jaw up to 3/4" for final tightening or instant release. Removable 1 1/2" thick stock-support wings help stabilize long workpieces, and have built-in storage compartments for drill and driver bits or other accessories. The spring-loaded indexing pin lets you position the drilling block to accommodate material from 1/2" to 1 1/2" thick in 1/8" increments.
An included snap-in shroud connects to any 1 1/4" vacuum hose for easy debris clearance, with a pivoting outlet that lets you orient the hose to avoid obstruction. Also included are a micro-adjust workpiece positioning stop, a 3/8" step drill bit and depth collar, a depth-collar setting gauge, a 6" #2 square-recess driver, an assortment of screws and instructions.
Additional 6 1/4" long one-piece HSS step drill bits (3/16" diameter by 5/8" long pilot and 3/8" diameter counterbore), a 2 1/2" hose adapter and optional face-frame clamps (regular and self-adjusting) are available separately.
