I have the K4 and I really like it. You can use the K4 like an R3 (portable – clamp on where you need it) but not the other way around. I see the K4 as being more of a “bench tool”. It seems like the advantage of the R3 would be to repair furniture you cant disassemble or drag into you shop. I really dont plan on doing any of that so the K4 is great for me.

I’m right in the middle of making some built in bookshelves for our little home office and using the K4. Its working very well. The pocket holes and the jointery are one of the easier parts of the entire project.

I’d highly recommend also picking up their right angle clamp (a pin on one side fits in the pocket hole you just made and a flat surface grips the perpendicular surface) if you plan on making “boxes” of any sort. This thing is worth its weight in gold and makes assembly pretty easy.
