I did not like the way my kreg jig was attached to a peace of plywood.
Whenever I wanted to use it, I had to clamp the plywood to the workbench and support the workpiece if it was a little bit bigger.
In short, it was not comfortable to use it and store it.
Now it’s ready to use quickly, easy to store, and I don’t have to support the workpeace.
I hope it is gonna be a good idea for you too.

This is Fantastic !!

This is just what I was looking for. A way to get my kreg jig off that peace of plywood and semi permanent on my workbench.

Thanks for posting !

WHAT? That is the best thing I have seen done with a Kreg jig, I will have to see if I can incorporate that into my bench! Pure genius…..

Very interesting! I just mounted my Kreg jig on a piece of plywood for much the same reason, and then was annoyed when I realized I could no longer store it in it’s carrying case. I may have to do something like this.
