Been using Dowels for a while and wanted to try another system. Was debating on getting the Pro system but wanted to test out the smaller one 1st. Tested it out on a small project 1st(Picture Frame) and I have to say I really like it so far. Having the Kreg clamp is really helpful for speeding things up. One suggestion I would tell anyone if they want to get one it to use a red pencil. Its so much easier to see the lines when you are marking your pieces. I also think on some projects it may be easier to reference off of the sides of the pieces instead of using the lines.

Thanks for the review, it looks like a pretty slick system. It’s amazing what you can do with just a drill and little jig.

Thanks for posting.

I had one and I used it and it worked well but to me it was a bit too time consuming. For most people I would highly recommend it. For me, because of my real job, I have very little time in the shop so I ended up springing for a domino.

If time is not a major issue, I would tell anyone this is a great tool to have. You can even make your own tenons with a router table and beadlock bit. I sold mine to a friend who wanted to start with woodworking.

Nice review and I’ll pass along the red pencil tip.

Nice comment!!!
Here’s one thing that needs to be done more.
Acknowledge when someone helps you out with a tip or idea.
Give credit where do.

By doing this more will be willing to contribute, I would hope.
