Thank you so much for making this! Did you print it as pictured in the stl file, on its side? what percent infill did you use? thanks again!

EDIT: never mind, I printed it laying down and it worked great! I probably didn't need to but I went 40% to make it tough, only took 3 hrs to print. Can't wait to pick up some couplers and try it out, thanks again!

Odd I am the only one that has the issue, my coupler has a dibble in it, did no one else have this issue?

Just run a 3/8in drill through it and the dibbles get gobbled.

Haha didn't catch my typo! Thanks I ended up using a file.

Amazing this saves me tens of pound buying one.

Made one on the HP4200, need to get the tubes and see if it works!

I just spent an entire day using a pair of these that I made. I bought 1/4" copper couplings from Home Depot to insert into the hole. I think I'll be going back and getting a length of 1/4" copper pipe instead and cutting it to fit. I don't have the 2 step bit that you get to use with the Kreg jig to create the pilot hole in it, so I don't know how that works. I used a 3/8" drill bit and it worked fine. I also placed the jig about an inch from the end of each board so the screws would have more board to grab. At the end of the day there was some damage to the jigs I made from the drill bit, but not enough to render them unusable. I'd recommend the 1/4" pipe, cut it to fit the hole in the jig and then glue it into place to prevent it moving. Also, don't use a hammer to put the copper in the hole, heat up a soldering iron and use it to push it in.

1/4" pipe is not a large as the coupling. One is OD and one is ID just for reference. You might need 3/8 ID pipe instead to do as you mention.

1/4" copper coupling - is the 1/4" internal or external diameter ? Thanks.

I just printed this and it does not appear to be set up for 3/4 as the Kreg version is. By my measurement, it will exit the wood at about 1/4 inch. The angle seems to be somewhere around (very approximately) 14-16 degrees.

so does it work? ( i have no clue in wood working, i was gonna buy a kreg jig but why buy if i can print :P )

Hey, thanks a lot for making this Jig, I'll put it to good use.

what angle are the guides at? 15 degrees?

This is awesome, Well done! What size drill bit does it support?

Hi Jamimr,

I am new to this and am excited about your jig.
I downloaded your file then looked into 3d printing services (I don't own a 3d printer). I went to 2 different sites thinking I was looking at a very inexpensive service. The first site I went to, SourceGraphics, said the the item (in inches) was too big. I changed it to cm and then was quoted over $100. I then went to the Staples site and was quoted $1,300..... haha

I can buy a basic Kreg jig for less than any of those 2 quotes and have a lot more functionality.


Am I missing something?

Thank you,

Hi. Try www.3dhubs.com or shapeways.com

Thank you for your help.
What a great idea to have this collaborative printing service.
Happy holidays :)

did you ever get someone to print it for you? I could print it for you at a fairly good price.

Hi. I always used my printer.

haaa et moi qui en est acheter un, sa coute une fortune ce truc :p

Terrific! Almost bought one this weekend.
Well done.
