Will have to keep that in mind after I set up my shop again, since my Workmate went swimming in the flood.

That reminds me, I have a Workmate that has drifted behind a number of other things and thus, is out of mind. I have had to split my shop and put some milling tools in the garage, I'm going to dig it out and move to the garage. I like the Kreg unit though. Nice gadget.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

That looks pretty dang good to me. Especially since I already have an assortment of Kreg clamps. :-)

When I think of Kreg, I think of Mike. HAhahaa


I agree I like to see new good ideas instead of the same old thing in different colors.

Looks to be useful. I gave my B&D away about 2 years ago. Just found that it was more torubkle to drag out and setup than a pair of saw horses.
