    5-0 out of 5 stars This Kreg kit is one slick setup.
    I've used my Kreg kit for several months now. It sure makes a difference in the speed of assembly. I whipped up a router table in no time and a lot of other projects besides. Works great on dimensional lumber too. Used it to make the 2X4 framing for a utility building addition as well as the framing for flooring in my aluminum boat. It's great having everything all packed in the carrying case ready to go. Setup is a snap and sure cuts down on the need for lots of clamps.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Holing Wonder!
    I bought one of these to make face frames for some kitchen cabinets, but it has gotten a considerable workout in addition to the original project. The kit is very complete and comes in a nice plastic case. There are actually two jigs - the large one that you will need to mount on a board and the small, one hole "Mini Jig" that just gets clamped wherever you need it.

    The large jig with the wings is the most useful. It has a built-in clamp to hold the wood securely against the drilling jig. There are three separate guide holes that allow for different spacing of holes. The "wings" are two separate parts that do not connect to the main jig. You will have to screw all three pieces to a piece of 3/4" plywood to get the most use out of it. That leaves a big vacancy in the case if you leave it setup, as I do, but that makes a good place to store additional screws.

    The "Mini Jig" is great for those large panels that can't be mounted in the main jig. Just clamp it where you want it and drill the holes.

    Depth adjustment is easy with the guide on the "wings." Just lay the special bit in the groove with the bit's shoulder aligned with the thickness of the material you are screwing to. Slide the stop collar on the bit shaft until it is against the side of the wing and tighten. You can't make an error. It does pay to check the collar every now and then to make sure it has not slipped. If you over drill, you will be going through the face side of your work with the screws.

    I use this in place of biscuits in many cases, but don't throw out the biscuit joiner yet! On long, edge-joined pieces, it is helpful to throw in a few biscuits for alignment between the screws, not gluing them if you want to make it a "knock-down" cabinet.

    I used to think I was pretty slick with a drill, cutting an occasional pocket hole freehand. That just is not as precise or repeatable as the results you will get with this jig. I would highly recommend adding this outfit to your shop - you will get more and better results! Oh, and do order some extra screws - you WILL have a use for them!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Kreg Pro Pack is great!
    I recently purchased the Kreg K2000 Pro Pack. I had been using a generic pocket hole jig, and after setting up and using my new Kreg jig I can say there is no comparison. The Kreg jig is a slick set up. It made it easy to drill clean pocket holes. Also, use the Kreg screws. The Kreg screws easily bore into the wood, and so far I've had no problem with wood splitting. In fact a friend who is a carpenter was impressed when I showed him a project and he learned that I didn't have to drill a pilot hole in the receiving piece of oak. He was impressed that there was no splitting. This seems to be a really nice tool set.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Save time and labor
    Don't be afraid to give this joint maker a try, you will be suprised how fast and easy you can make perfect joints. I just built an entire set of kitchen cabinets using the kreg pro, and it more than paid for itself in time and labor and frustration. Very easy to use. Great tool.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great joint maker
    This is great tool for making easy joints, I have used them in outdoor tables where I don't want the joints to show. I am finding more and more uses for this product every day. The set up is easy and it really make a strong joint in seconds.
    I have just completed a pie safe and the inside joints were made even beter with the plugs. They seem to disapear after sanding and finishing. ... Read more

    What a clever little job this is. Our first thought was to take it to the shop and build picture frames--it's perfect for that, along with countless other finish and trim projects. The pins are so tiny, you really wouldn't need to fill the holes. It's as light as a stapler but fastens like a nailer. It has lots of power for its size as well as many of the features of its big brothers, like rear exhaust, easy jam-clearing, fast, simple loading, and a visible warning when your fasteners are running low. We like it!--Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Senco Finish Pro 10 a good buy
    I bought this micro pinner for rustic work. I build alot of Adirondack rustic style items which require small diameter twigs to be fastened. Brad nailers are often too large for the job, and hand nailing with small brads is tricky at best. This pinner is absolutely perfect! I have been able to fasten twigs as small as 1/8" diameter to plywood and other wood surfaces with absolutely no splitting (of course it's a little tricky to get the pin centered in a twig this small). The little pins also have a pretty good amount of holding power.

    The Senco FP 10 is very light, has a nice design, and is a breeze to use. However, I was very surprised, and somewhat disappointed to find that, unlike my other Senco Nailers, this one is Taiwanese. I purchased it because I knew the Porter Cable was Taiwanese, and I wanted an American made product like my other Sencos. Given that the FP 10 is advertised as a professional tool, I never would have expected it to be an import.

    Only time will tell if it holds up as well as other Senco nailers.

    The other disappointment is that you need to oil this nailer, again, unlike other Senco products.

    All in all, for the price and for what it is designed to do, the tool is a good buy. Senco, of course, does not include any fasteners in the box, nor do they include a cap for the 1/4" NPT fitting (which IS included). The oil bottle is very small, so purchase your fasteners when you purchase the nailer and get extra oil while you're at it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding pin gun
    As a trim carpenter I've used a lot of brad nailers, looking for the best results. When it comes to pinning delicate trim, such as scribe, 1/4" rope molding, or screen molding, even 18 guage brads are often too think and split the material. Not so with this 23 guage pinner. It's perfect for delicate work. I've even started using to install pre-finished crown molding in kitchens, the holes left are so small that I often don't have to putty, and even when the putty doesn't match well, it's nearly impossilbe to find the holes afterward. I highly recommend this gun to anyone who is concerned about the appearnce of nail holes on their finished work. And it's Senco, so you know it will stand up to the test of time and the punishment of constant use.

    2-0 out of 5 stars good, when it works
    I install high end kitchens for a living. A pin nailer is a necessity for me, but I am still waiting for a good one to come out. I would pay triple the cost of this thing if they would come out with one that doesn't jam or misfire all the time.

    Picture this, you're holding that crown moulding you just painstakingly cut to perfection and set in place...you hold it with one hand, apply your glue, grab the pinner and while holding both pieces together with one hand you gently ease the pinner to the perfect spot...squeeze slowly and pop. Pull the pinner back, let go and the pieces fall apart. Because the most frustrating tool in your box misfired AGAIN. I swear...I'd trade my new truck for a pinner that worked well.

    But, like I said...can't live without one.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Right Tool for the job.
    I installed some cabinetry at home and used this tool beased on the reviews here to attach the scribes and delicate trim to these expensive hard maple cabinets. It worked like a charm. Never misfired, set the pins perfectly, no botched pins or split wood. Can't even see the holes, so its easier than gluing or puttying holes for an 18 gage nailer.

    The nails/pins should be loaded one way only, and a few drops of oil at the beginning of the project keeps this gun performing flawlessly. No problems whatsoever.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Met expectations
    I build small wooden props and sets for my photography studio, so I need to work clean and fast. This thing is great.....it does exactly what I wanted. My old pinner used bigger pins, actually tiny brad nails....so I had to fill them in with putty/and or drywall compound, then wait for it to dry, paint it, etc. Also the heads on the other pinner were big...and had to be set....sometimes even pulled out if they didn't go correctly into tiny molding. These pins don't really have a head..and seem to "set themselves" right below the surface...and a coat of paint (latex or spray paint for quick jobs) is enough to fill in the hole, what small hole is left, and make the pins invisible. It'll handle the smallest pieces of molding...I also had a little bit of veneer coming up on my kitchen floor...an older oak herringbone floor. I put a little bit of clear epoxy, then a piece of thin clear plastic to protect the pinner from the glue...and zap ....the 1/2" pins worked beautifully. This opens up a range of repair and building jobs that seemed difficult or impossible before.... It's also light, easy to handle, and smooth as silk. No jams so far....I can see a model builder using this to build very small wooden models....you can even use it to hold veneer in place, and other small pieces for set-ups...then pull them out without any noticeable holes.... ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Ok, but not the best for the money.
    I decided to clean out the garage after being inspired by a friend who was doing the same. He ended up purchasing the Coleman series which is soo much nicer! The doors have actual hinges on them and they look better. I got the father's day special so for the money I can't complain. Except for the shipping. When I saw the box, I thought for sure these were smashed but they were just a little dented. Get ready to tap lightly with a soft hammer. The box says no tools, but don't believe it.Target had a lower price but I didn't want to pick them up. Target also carries the coleman. I'm saving you time and legwork. Spend 30% more and go with the coleman brand unless you have the money to go with Garage Tek look alikes. If I could do this again, I'd spend the 30% more.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Designed for indoor use
    When I bought this cabinet I planned to use it outdoor to store my gardening tools and other stuffs like fertilizer and pesticide. Upon its arrival I discovered the unit wasn't exactly meant for outdoor use right out of the box.

    The problem is that the cabinet top is not watertight. After one night of rain there was quite a bit of water inside the cabinet. After some trials and errors I ended up solving the problem by gluing (using silicon) a piece of corrugated vinyl roofing panel on top of the cabinet. This seems to work fines. The roofing panel costs about $7 each at Home Depot. You can cut the panel with a pair of scissors to the right size. Be sure to cut it a little bigger, about an inch or two on each side to give extra protection from heavy rains.

    The other reviewer mentioned that the doors are not lined up. This can be fixed by putting shims under the four bottom corners of cabinet. You need to experiment with this. By putting shims under differ "legs" you'll notice the alignments of the doors change.

    Another thing about this cabinet is the shelves inside have slots, meaning that if there is a spill on the top shelf the fluid will get the shelves below very quickly.

    This cabinet does have some pros, however: reasonably priced, shelving included, good storage capacity, and able to hold heavy stuffs. Assembly was straight forward, although somewhat tedious.

    This cabinet is OK if you are using it in your garage and have a perfectly flat floor. If I were to do it again I probably would spend another $60-$80 more and get a different unit.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Design needs some work.
    I had high hopes for this cabinet, and I bought the 4 door model as well. It went together easily enough, but when it was completely together, (and I followed the instructions to the letter) the doors did not exactly line up. They do close, but it would look much nicer if they were in proper alignment. The four door model did not seem to have this problem. It's just for the garage, but, still, I would have liked to see a better alignment of the doors. ... Read more

    You have to love something as clever as this. We've struggledwith hoisting bikes onto storage hooks in the garage, and that's justnot the way to live--this is. Just screw the pulley system into theceiling studs, thread rope through the guides, attach the rope to your bike, and effortlessly raise your bike to the ceiling. Pro Stor's Monster bike lift hoists bikes as heavy as 50 pounds up to a 12-foot ceiling, and you don't evenbreak a sweat. The locking mechanism prevents accidental release, andyour bike is out of the way. Solid-steel construction leaves nothing toworry about. We like this Monster. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great And---
    First off, this is a GREAT product. Just installed two units on the roof beams of my peaked garage. The bikes squeeze up between the rafters leaving about 8 feet of headroom. CAUTION-when attaching the two plates parallel to the beam the center line axis of the plate wants to lay flush against the wood. I'd suggest you drill 3/8" diameter relief holes in the beam above the plates for the bolt nuts that hold the pulley's to the plates or you will bend the plate when tightening the mounting screws (which run down the central axis of the plate). Also use a screw eye to knot off the end rather than put a knot above the plate (which would require another clearance hole). I needed more than the 48' of the 1/4 " dia. cord supplied but that looked pretty ratty anyway so I replaced it. Finally take into account an additional 12 inches of headroom for the plates and bike holding hooks.

    5-0 out of 5 stars 5 Star Product!
    A great, economical, easy to install, easy to use bike storage system. I bought 3 and are all well worth the money. I had a problem at first with two of them, but received EXCELLENT customer service from Racor directly, and the problem has been elimiated. It was a actually a pleasure to deal with a manufacturer who takes pride in their product and service. I recommend these to anyone looking to free up some garage space.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Racor PBH-1 Pro Stor Bicycle Hoist Monster
    This is a good quality product and an excellent company to buy from. Packaging was professional and shipment was very timely. They went out of their way to e-mail me a letter to better explain how to determine the distance between studs in our finished garage, easier ways to install the hoists along with a picture that is more explanatory and even to say if the two hoist don't work for us, directions on how to return. I give them thumbs up.
    Not to forget the hoist. I love the extra room that was made possible by hoisting the bicycles up to the ceiling in our garage. Nothing like getting them out of the way!
    They lock into place right at the top of the ceiling and getting them up was not that difficult. I was able to do it by myself.

    5-0 out of 5 stars No Hangups Here
    I just mounted my first bike hoist. It works great. I have a 20 ft ceiling in my garage and needed something to use that space. This fits the bill. The only alteration I needed to make was to buy 100 ft of rope. 1/4 inch clothesline rope seems to do the trick. I'm online now to buy 5 more. We shopped other locations, including various bike stores, auto part stores and garage stores. The 39.99 price was the lowest. With free shipping on Amazon.com, it can't be beat.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for the bikes and space-saving too!
    In today's garages it is almost impossible to get two vehicles inside the garage and still have room for other "garage stuff"! I don't want my bikes outside rotting in the weather, but I don't want them falling on my vehicles either. These bicycle hoists are easy to install once you use a stud finder in order to make sure you anchor them correctly. The pulley system makes it very simple to "pull" the bike to ceiling level and gets them high enough to allow clearance of the front of my fairly high-riding pickup. The bike tires also seem to do better hanging from the ceiling instead of rotting on the ground. I also imagine this to be an easier way to get your bike up off the ground than lifting it onto hooks. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Vrey good brad nailer
    I bought the Senco 25 brad nailer last week. The decision between the Porter Cable and the Senco was difficult, I finally based the purchased on the wider range of brad lengths for the Senco and the oil less design . I have used them both and operation between the two is very similar. The Senco is [$] more and can't shoot into tight spots like the Porter Cable can due to the location of the safety nose.I did like the better construction of the Porter Cable, its part steel and part fiber resin, it appeared to be more durable, the no-mar tip is especially nice,and its very easy to see where you are shooting . The Senco is constructed almost totally of fiber resin materials and I wonder how well it will hold up to being dropped.The Senco power boast it awkward to use,the no-mar tip is too flexible and line of sight for shooting takes some getting use to. Either gun is good, the oil less feature is nice if you tend to to over oil your tools like I do.If your on a budget go with the Porter Cable.

    5-0 out of 5 stars love it love it love it !!!
    I've been waiting years for this nailer to come out. While waiting I have bought and used several other 2" brad nailers. Not one compared very well against Senco's brad nailer, The SLP 20. It operates so much more smoothly , it isn't even funny. The oil-less design was revolutionary. Not only is it more convenient, it saves your work from oil stains. Still, I knew that Senco would one day produce a 2" brad nailer of their own. I also knew it would be the very best. I have to say ,it was worth the wait. Everything about it says quality. It carries all the best from the SLP 20 and improves on it. From the first brad you drive you will know just how good it is. Sooo smooth. No kick back like the other guns. Sooo powerful. You will never wonder if it's going to sink the nail. The adjustable depth of drive and exhaust are the icing on the cake. I also like the rubbery grip. It's very nice to hold. I have had no jams but if you ever do , they are easy to clear. Top it off with a hard to lose no mar tip and the ability to drive 2 1/8" brads and you have the best brad nailer at any price , bar none. Plus it's made in the U.S.A. all for just a few more dollars than the "cheapies". My imports are now for sale.

    this got to be a joke from senco. i own a brad from hitichi,porter cable and now senco. after 5 shot of brad nail the gun jam every 5-6 shot. for the money i thought this was a well engineer gun, maybe senco lost their touch. if you don't mind wasting time changing jamm nails this is the gun!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome,light...No jams
    One thing i hate is a brad gun that jams!!! I love my senco fp25xp. I never owned one before, and never knew what to expect after getting it. After hearing all the nitemare stories on nailers that jam, or break down on the job, i decided to do some reseach. well, it paid off!!!! This nailer is just plain awesome. Its very light, comfortable to hold, and i shot over 1000 brads without a single jam, or breakdown. Futhermore the gun loads fast and easy. it's only 18 gauge, but you should see the wood this thing shoots thru...Thank You senco!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best one out there IMHO!
    I purchased this with the XP41 15gauge finish nailer. This brad nailer has worked great for me as has the XP41, no jams, wide selection of nails. lot's of power. I have used it for baseboards and door casing. I have not needed to use the turbo setting, it also pretty quiet, my other brad nailer is LOUD! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Buy the floor nailer that uses these nails
    Its that simple. Spend the bucks, and you will not regret it. These nailing cleats are the best way to attach a piece of flooring to a subfloor. They hold tightly forever. I've never had a callback on a floor put in with porta-nails cleats. I own the new pneumatic porta nailer and think its great. Its a little more money than the competition, but well worth it. No jambs or messed up nails. It just works.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Porta-Nailer
    The Porta-Nailer is by far the most reliable flooring nailer on the market. The nails hold extremely well. They do not split the wood. Because the nailer is actuated by the hammer that is included, the boards are driven up quite tight. It will straighten even the most stubborn flooring. I have owned this nailer for ten years and have had no trouble. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    This is an innovative tool whose time has most definitely come, making it possible for do-it-yourselfers to have all the power of an air nailer without buying a compressor, fooling with hoses, or putting up with the noise. And unlike other airless nailers, this one requires no fuel cells, and the battery is rechargeable just like those found in other cordless tools. Senco's AirFree brad nailer does the job, maybe with slightly less speed, but the convenience may be more than worth it. There's a slight delay when you press the trigger as the tool revs up, but you'll grow accustomed to the rhythm. It's powered by a 12-volt battery, never needs oil, and features an electronic depth-of-drive adjustment. Senco packs two batteries and a charger along with the nailer in a tough carrying case. You'll fire 600 to 1,000 nails on a charge, and a recharge takes anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes. Low vibration and a comfortable grip make this a heck of a tool. We really, really like this. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Defective design does not hold up
    I am a professional finish carpenter working in cabinet shop. I have been using this gun daily for three months. In the beginning it worked just fine, but it did not hold up. I do NOT use it heavily, mostly to install crown molding and scribe, perhaps a strip of nails a day maximum.

    It started out not setting the nails properly, and now the belt is not driving the nails at all. The belt driver winds up and then winds down and won't shoot. Out of 8 carpenters in my shop who purchased this gun, I am number 6 to have to return it due to this defect. We have been instructed not to purchase anymore until they work the bugs out.

    It may be a fine tool for a handyman or a casual user, but if you're a professional and need a reliable nail gun, I would recommend sticking with a compressor and a traditional air brad nailer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars All I can say is...WOW!
    Just finished about 200 linear feet of baseboards, casings, and quarter-round. For the first half I used the old hammer and nail set, the second half I used the AF25 and was absolutely amazed at the results. The AF25 easily cut the install time in half and left me to concentrate on my cuts. The wind up time was not a bother, and you can still drive brads at a pretty good pace. I was trying to decide whether to go with this, or the Porter Cable pnumatic kit with the pancake compressor. With the Senco, there is no compressor to lug, no hoses to string, it's much quieter, and comes with 2 quick charge batteries so there should never be any down time. There is the drawback of not easily being able to add additional tools (like a framing nailer, etc.), but the brad driver will handle 90% of what I do (woodworking and casings) and I can get a framer with compressor later if needed (beware basement, your time is drawing near). The batteries are fully charged in less than an hour unless they are totally drained, then 1.5 hours. I had no trouble putting a 2" brad into solid ash anywhere from 1/4" proud of the surface to countersunk about 1/8".

    Now when I see Norm say, "and I'll fasten this with a few brads to hold it 'till the glue dries", I can say, "hey, I can do that!"

    I highly recommend this product, they put together a good package.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Lacks durability
    Great gun when it works. However, I have gone through at least 4 (have lost exact count) of these guns. Local repair shops cannot work on them so they have to be sent back to Senco. Senco has been great about sending out replacements (covered by warranty) but every replacement has also broken. There is an obvious durability issue. I currently have 2 of them waiting to be sent back and am buying 2 more air-powered guns to replace them with. If you need a gun that is reliable, look for something else.

    5-0 out of 5 stars No Compressor or air lines!
    I was a little skeptical when I purchased a Battery Powered brad nailer. But much to my suprize this really works and I mean good. It will shoot a 2 in brad through a 2X4!. There is no heavy air compressor to lug around and no air lines to get tangled up in. This is one of my most time saving purchases. Everyone that I have let borrow it have gone out and bought their own. Try one It will sell itself

    Amazon.com Review

    Senco air-powered tools are famous for their durability and features, and this finish stapler is no exception. The PowerPlus SLS20 is incredibly powerful yet surprisingly lightweight; combining an ergonomic design and a soft grip, it's also exceptionally easy to handle. Its magazine has the capacity to hold 168 18-gauge, 3/8- to 1-1/2-inch staples. We appreciate the adjustable depth-of-drive control that allows for precise countersinking, an especially important feature for furniture assembly. This stapler is also excellent for working on molding, trim, underlayment, soffits, and crafts. Safety is a chief concern with pneumatic staplers, and Senco pneumatic products include impressive safety features. A no-mar safety and restrictive trigger reduce the chances of accidental firings. The bottom-load magazine has a smart design, including a molded lever that keeps the magazine from accidentally opening. There's also a clear sight hole so you can check on the staple supply. Of course, only a well-maintained tool is a safe tool, and Senco designed the PowerPlus SLS20 with this in mind: this stapler never needs lubrication and has only one moving seal, resulting in virtually trouble-free operation. --Tom Kasperson ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Bit of a disappointment
    I own a Senco FP25XP brad nailer and have been extremely satisfied with it - so when I decided to purchase a narrow crown stapler, I chose Senco again. My two options were the SLS20 (this one) or the SKS-L. The SLS20 was less expensive and reviewers here gave it good ratings so I ordered the SLS20.

    When I received it, however, I was a bit disappointed. The cushion grip is not moulded like on the FP25, but is a piece of foam rubber wrapped around the handle and glued. And because of the way it's wrapped, it's unconfortable in your hand. Probably won't take very long before it begins to come unglued and looks all ratty.

    The second disappointment was that the unit will not drive one inch staples into maple - it leaves the head proud by about 1/16. I checked the pressure on my compressor and it's in spec. The unit will drive 3/4 inch staples into maple.

    The third disappointment was that the unit did not come with a case, even though Amazon advertises it as shipping with a case.

    The fourth disappointment was when I found the SLS20 at a much lower price at a major home improvement store.

    Overall, I'd recommend buying the SKS-L, or if you can tolerate the reduced power, go with a lower priced Senco stapler.

    I returned the SLS20 and ordered the SKS-L. While the SKS-L has its own problems, it does have the power that the SLS20 is lacking.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Smooth
    I've used this stapler quite extensively around the house and it has performed flawlessly. No jams, very smooth operation. Nothing more to say, this is the cream of the crop as far as narrow crown staplers go. It's worth the extra money.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I wish everything was this good
    The SLS 20 is much like the SLP 20 brad nailer. Pretty powerful for its size and very smooth in operation. It doesn't have as much power as the larger SKS staple gun which uses the same staples but weighs a lot more. In its favor the SKS will consistently sink 1 1/2" staples into hardwood all day long.The SLS fits into smaller spaces though so It's somewhat a trade off . Nevertheless Other mini 1/4 inch crown staplers don't compare. They don't have the same power and they don't fire with the same super smooth action. They also seem to recoil more which is a bother. If you've ever shot 18 GA. staples you know it doesn't take much to turn them into a pretzel. Any nail or screw behind your work surface will make quick work of these little fasteners. This gun is very easy to deal with in this situation. Just flip the EZ clear lever and you're back in business. Top it off with an adjustable depth of drive and oilless operatin and you have the best small 1/4" crown stapler in the industry. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product/Easy to Use
    I have been using the Kreg Pocket Jig for about eight years and have been totally satisfied. For cabinet construction, I generally use pocket screws in conjunction with biscuits. It may take a little longer, but the end result is perfect alignment and no clamping reqired.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Kreg Pocket Hole Jigs Number 1 across the board
    I bought the Kreg Pocket Hole Pro Pack, which has all of the components on this set, plus the workpiece holder. You could make your own using a toggle clamp. What I wanted to share with you is that the Kreg Pocket Hole offerings made the number one spot across the board in the November 2003 issue of Better Homes and Gardens "Wood" magazine. Everything from the mini on through to the automated production machine were given the top ratings. It was a clean sweep for Kreg. They tested a lot of machines too. Some of the advantages are the flush edge joining to the workpiece prevented tearout. The case hardened steel guides didn't show wear or metal shavings. Easy to make or buy the premade plug holes out of wood. (Some were an odd shape, and wouldn't accept plugs very well)
    Even though the body is made out of plastic, which is substantial and well done, the steel guides are the only thing the drill bit touches.
    Pocket hole joinery is a nice addition to your arsenal. You will find yourself incorporating it more and more into your projects, and the Kreg system is the best. Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Quick, easy pocket holes
    I just used this today for the first time to build a frame for a pirates chest for my 5 year olds' birthday party. Quick easy joints that looked great. Loved it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Tool for the Shop
    I build cabinetry and prior to getting my Kreg I used a mix of T&G, dowels, and biscuits to join boards and frames together. For your basic furniture construction this device is simply amazing. Attach the jig to one face to be joined, run the special drill bit (included) down one or both fixed metal ferules, unclamp and use the Kreg screws to attach the two parts. I can now build furniture, test for fit in the shop, take it apart, apply finish and rebuild on site.

    On the downside it leaves a rather gaping hole on one side of the joint so it is not the preferred method for joining boards that are visible on both sides. They sell wooden plugs (in different wood species), but I am not impressed with them as they take a lot of fiddling to get them in and flush. I also have not used it for joining boards into panels (table tops or cabinet sides) because I prefer an old school biscuit joint with good clamping technique for a flush surface.

    However like I said earlier. This is a heck of a tool. It makes for speedy face frame joints and handles my ¾ inch plywood joints very easily. Plus I can literally build the cabinet piece by piece and take it apart to finish or move it. For the price, the rocket pockethole kit is a very good value. If you build cabinets or furniture, than this is a nice tool to have it your shop. (BTW: order extra screws - personally I find I use the 1 ¼ coarse thread screws on just about everything).

    5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful alternative to biscuits
    I bought one of these little jigs to see if pocket screw construction really was as great as the advertisements say- and I'm here to tell you it's even better. I'd used biscuits in the past to build cabinets, but pocket screws can be set up faster and require no clamping when gluing. The only downside is that pocket screws, unlike biscuits, aren't totally hidden from view- but the holes can be hidden in a lot of built in construction or filled with oak or maple plugs available from Kreg.

    This little Kreg jig has a plastic body, but it's a very high density synthetic and should last a long time. The kit has everything you need to get started, including screws, but you'll probably want to get a bag of another 1000 if you plan on doing more than a few boxes.

    If you're planning on gearing up for even limited production, or building an entire kitchen, consider getting the all-metal Kreg with built in clamp. For about twice the cost (once you buy the accesories already included with this jig) you'll have a unit than can be bench mounted and sets up in a couple of seconds. ... Read more

    One of the most popular brad nailers on the market, this model from Senco is lightweight, oil free, and perfect for work on fine woods and trim. It has a comfortable foam grip and, at only 2.3 pounds, you'll be able to use it all day without having to worry about excessive arm fatigue. The nailer drives 5/8- to 1-5/8-inch medium- and slight-head brads and offers easy side loading and a handy jam-clearing feature. Since it's oil free, you can forget that morning maintenance ritual and--better yet--you won't have to worry about getting oil on fine woods. Overall, this is an easy-to-use unit that should be given serious consideration if you're looking for an everyday brad nailer. --Jonathon Tudor ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A REAL STRAIGHT SHOOTER
    I know that some other less expensive nailers out there are very popular, and may perform just fine but, in my opinion this is the best brad nailer on earth.I say it's a work of art. It is so refined and sculpted inside and out it truley deserves A 5 star rating.Replacement parts and service centers are not a problem, when time is money.I wont bore you with all the projects I've done but, I will say they were a lot easier and hassle free using this tool.Senco is made right here in the good ol' U.S.A. and has a solid reputation.I'm not knocking some of the other brands out there. I'm just saying,you get what you pay for. Now get out there and build something.

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT GUNS
    ... I have a Porter Cable finish nailer and it has performed flawlessly in the time I've had it. But, I knew the Senco is a better piece of equipment even though it is twice the price of the Porter Cable. In the time I've had the Senco brad nailer I have been totally satisfied. It's light, easy to handle and has virtually no kick back when fired. I'm delighted to have the better quality tool at nearly the same price.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Has difficulty countersinking
    I've used the SLP20 at work (remodeling), and overall think it's probably a good brad nailer. I suspect that the one we're using may have a defect or be wearing out (although it's relatively new). The majority of the time, ours fails to countersink any size of brad. Instead it flush drives the brads or leaves the head slightly above the wood surface. This means that we have to get out the nail set, which leaves a larger than desirable mark on the wood. It's time consuming to set the brads by hand, and unacceptable when we're working with stain-grade woods.

    Recently a colleague bought a reconditioned Porter Cable BN200A to use instead of the Senco. The first one had misfiring problems, but the second one works fine. It's too early to know how the Porter Cable will hold up, but it sure is nice to have a brad nailer that can properly countersink the brads.

    I've also used an Hitachi NT50AE that another finish carpenter at our jobsite really likes. For the price (it's the cheapest of the three on Amazon.com), I'd probably go with the Hitachi although I don't like the fact that it's a little taller than the others.

    A couple of years ago I embarked on a remodel of my house, and I was determined to perform all of the interior finish carpentry, and refurnish with Arts and Craft style furniture. After quite a bit of research I settled on two nailers, a Senco finish nailer and this SLP-20. Since that time I've used these tools to drive hundreds (thousands?) of nails and brads, into wood ranging from oak to soft pine, and they have never failed me. I now approach any nailing task with utter confidence in my tools, and I'm a better woodworker for it. I have never regretted spending somewhat more for my Senco nailers because they have never let me down. The one servicing need I had cleared up an air leak problem instantly, thanks to the folks at the service center. The SLP-20 is a high quality product, and is money well spent.

    Park-Zone is an innovative precision-parking device for the home that's easy to use and even easier to install. After a simple one-time setup, the Park-Zone uses its ultrasonic sensing mechanism to measure the distance from your car to the garage wall as you park. When you pull into the garage, you see the green light illuminate, then midway it changes to yellow, and when the light turns red you're right where you want to be. In our book, this beats a tennis ball hanging on a string because it's a lot easier to set up, it's much more precise, and, unlike the tennis ball, it looks good in a garage. Anyone who parks in a small or crowded garage will appreciate the accuracy this gadget offers. The Park-Zone operates on AC power or on batteries that last an entire year. Stop bumping the back wall and get into the Park-Zone. --Brian Trinen ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Useful Device For Safe Garage Parking
    I ordered this item, it was delivered very promptly by Amazom.com. It was easy to install, but took longer than 90 seconds, as indicated by the manufacturer. Park-Zone can be installed in any garage, and simply guides you to the exact distance from the wall that you determine. It operates on 4-AA batteries (which are said to power the unit for a year) or the AC adapter included. As you drive into the garage, a green, amber, and red light guides you to the right spot. I'll be ordering 2 more for our other cars !!

    5-0 out of 5 stars It Does Exactly What It's Supposed to Do...


    I was skeptical when I first purchased this item because I didn't have any confidence in it's ability to accurately gauge the distance of a bumper to the bumpee (a.k.a. the wall). But, after installing it my confidence was immediately buoyed by the unerring accuracy with which it issues its green-yellow-red sequence.

    The setup and installation took about 10 minutes. Anyone can install this thing! The instructions were clear and easy to follow, and the provided templates make sure your installation goes easier.

    The ONLY complaint I have about this device is the number of wires it leaves exposed. Depending on the distance from an AC outlet, it can be aesthetically unpleasant. There's a wire from the signal light down to the sensor (the wire that's shown in the photo), and then another from the signal light to the AC outlet.

    Overall, though, I love the device. And... it works with multiple cars and doesn't seem very sensitive to bumper height.

    5 Stars!

    I purchased two units a year ago. One for each of my garage doors. Love 'em both. Have no problems. Work as advertised. Takes the risk out of guessng when to stop my car. And I could take down the stupid tennis ball I have been using for years. Another plus is my wife likes the blinking colors. Go figure. Extreme change in seasonal tempature does not adversly effect the opeation of the units. Still just keep on working.

    I was expecting it to be very accurate, but it doesn't work if you try to park closer than a foot from the wall.

    Senco's SKS-L trim stapler is an excellent tool for a number of woodworking applications. In addition to cabinet, furniture, and molding assembly, it is also used on doors, window casings, trim, crating, agricultural boxes, fencing, and wood crafts. This medium-wire trim stapler is capable of driving 1/4-inch crown staples in lengths ranging from 7/8 to 1-1/2 inches. We found this model to be lightweight (only 4.2 pounds) and versatile, capable also of attaching aluminum and vinyl siding, underlayment, roofing sheathing, and decking materials. It holds 158 staples and comes with a restrictive trigger; however, Senco will provide a dual-action (bump-firing) trigger that allows for a firing rate of up to five staples per second. Senco is a pioneer of the oil-free industry--this stapler never needs lubrication, ensuring virtually trouble-free operation and low maintenance. The SKS-L is a great tool for general woodworking applications and beyond. --Tom Kasperson ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Powerful Stapler but lacking in features
    For some tasks, a staple provides a stronger attachment than a small headed nail. A nail depends upon friction between the nail and the wood for its holding power. Sometimes the material being attached just does not provide a good friction grip, although the underlying material does. In these cases, a staple works better because the crown traps some of the upper material between the two legs. The upper material can't come loose unless the staple pulls out or the material breaks. That's why I went in search of a stapler

    Before I purchased this stapler, I tried the Senco SLS20 stapler. The SLS20 was just not powerful enough - it would not drive one inch staples into maple through a drawer bottom. This stapler solves that problem. It's powerful enough to handle any wood I choose. I also like the oilless feature, not only because there's no oil to mar the work I'm doing, but also because I always forget to oil nailers that require oil. Although I haven't owned this stapler long enough to comment, other users have commented that the SKS is rugged and reliable over time.

    While the SKS is a powerful stapler, there are a number of shortcomings to it.

    1. The unit is big and heavy which makes it hard to maneuver.
    2. There's no depth adjustment on the gun (the documentation erroneously says there is). To change the depth adjustment you have to buy a different driver and install it, or grind the existing one. You won't change the drive depth very often with this unit.
    3. The gun does not detect when it's out of staples but keeps firing (blanks). The operator has to notice that nothing is being driven and re-load the stapler. The driver marks the surface even though no staple is driven so it's not easy to notice that nothing is being driven.
    4. The air exhaust is not adjustable so you get blasted in the face under certain conditions.
    5. The documentation is miserable - worse manual I've ever seen.
    6. The gun is extremely expensive when compared to other narrow crown staplers.

    All-in-all, it appears to me that the SKS is an old design that Senco keeps around, perhaps because there's not enough competition in this segment of the market to cause them to bring out a more modern design. I would recommend shopping around before you buy the SKS. There must be better staplers out there but I don't have enough experience yet to recommend one to you.

    Update May 4, 2004: After using the SKS-L stapler for a few months, an additional problem appeared. The spring on the magazine is fairly weak. When the magazine gets low, the spring is not strong enough to push the staples into firing position and the gun fires a blank. The problem is intermittent - the gun may miss two or three staples and then begin firing again for a few staples. Because of the marking of the wood by the driver, you can't tell if a staple has been driven except by attempting to lift the wood to see if it is attached. The problem does not happen when the magazine is full.

    Senco support has been fairly responsive to my problem and is sending me replacement parts.

    This, by far is the best staple gun on the market(you will get what you pay for).. I've shot over 10,000 staples through everything from siding,sheathing to fence boards out of this stapler without one jamb. The oil-free feature makes it and even more "Must Have".. From the General Contractor to the "Weekender"..

    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the finest trim stapler on the market !
    I have used this product for over ten years. It works well in every application from entertainment scenery fabrication to cabinet frames. This fastener range is excellent for the home user. It satisfies a wide variety of applications.

    Senco has made perhaps the best pro-quality stapler on the market. I use this tool every day in my residential trim business, and I can say that it is built to last. ... Read more

    I just installed the opener today.Fairly easy to install.I was able to use some of the exisiting hardware from the previous installation so I didn't have to worry about hangers or the wall or door mounts.The settings were pretty close right out of the box for distance and force.This has all the safety features that I was looking for plus it is very quiet.It is below our bedroom so I went with the belt drive.Much quieter than the LiftMaster chain drive it replaced.Besides all the usual bells and whistles that pretty much all the combo sets have (2 openers, rolling code, outside keypad, safety beam eyes) it has a cool feature that lets you add devices from the wall mount so you don't have to get up on a stool or ladder to press the "learn" button on the motor.The 2 100 watt lights are nice and bright.So far no complaints. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very nice gun.
    I have owned this gun about a year now and it has been wonderful.
    I have a SFN40 air gun which is very nice also but since I bought the AF41 I have not bothered to get the air gun out of the van. Both guns sit side by side and I always grab the AF41. I have never had a miss fire or a nail fail to set all the way. I don't work with 2" oak either. I can't imagine how Senco could improve this gun. I had paslodes in the past but the battery always was dead when I went to use it and they dont smell very good when used indoors.

    2-0 out of 5 stars okay til it breaks...and it will
    This gun is one of those products that you'll wonder how you ever did without until.....it eventually breaks down. And it's guaranteed that it will. I had the Air Free 41, along with the cordless brad nailer, and I was as happy as a clam with both of them. That is until they both eventually broke. The brad nailer broke on me 5 times and the finish nailer twice. Fortunately the HDepot carried them so I just returned them for a new one each time. Unfortunately, they no longer carry these items for reasons I can only guess might be that they were filling containers full of broken guns for return to Senco.

    If you aren't going to use these guns for your livelyhood, then by all means get one. Make sure you have a backup compressor and gun just in case. By the way, Senco in south FL is no longer fixing these guns. The Dewalt rep will be happy to accomodate your repair for approximately half the cost of a new gun. What a bargain.

    1-0 out of 5 stars good Idea poor product
    I went through 5 of these guns and all failed. Luckily home depot took them all back. I spoke with a senco distributor who told me he sold 200 of these guns and had 180 returned. He said senco sent him some prototypes to try that all failed. He told senco that the gun wasn't ready for market, but they brought them out any way. I use senco air powered nail guns on a daily basis with tremendous satisfaction, but this gun is a loser.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I Love this nail gun
    I got mine at Christmas and have used it for about 3000 nails. All nails were 2 1/2 inch driven into pine, fir and oak. I have never had a problem or a jam. I have an 18 guage nailer and a framing nailer but I use the Senco now rather than these whenever possible because the Senco AF41 is cordless and easy to use.

    I have been using it primarily for crown molding (1200 feet installed with the gun)and door jam nailing. The cordless operation is very nice for nailing molding. On a step ladder you can hold the molding with one hand and nail with this cordless gun in the other.

    I did not know how handy this tool would be when I bought it but it is now one of my favorite tools.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Expensive Toy - But Worth It.
    I bought the AF-41 to help get some of those projects done that have been kicking around for a while. (At least that's what I told my wife.) It works as well as I expected...easy to use. A little heavy compared to an air tool but I'm not tripping over the hose. It especially handy for one- or two nail jobs.

    A contractor working on my house tried it, and his comment was, "Hey, this is really slick!" He had been ready to go out to his truck and get his compressor, but finished the whole job with the AF-41, and it never missed a beat.

    I've only had it a couple of months, but IMHO, this one's a keeper. ... Read more

    Just finished the casing on the closet door frames in my daughters' room. These were flawless in my Accuset 200BN.
    Never a jam with the 2" brads or the 1 1/4" brads!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Average Performance Brads
    These are functional, but not very tough. They seem to be a little softer than some other brads I have used, which lets them deflect fairly easily at this long length. Therefore, keep your fingers out of range! They do hold well and are difficult to remove if you make a boo-boo.

    I am a finish contractor and I really find it nice when i can buy a quality product that will not damage either my tools or the project that I am working on. These nails feed thru my accuset brad nailer w/o any trouble at all and plan to switch over to them fulltime. ... Read more

    Kreg's self-tapping screws were designed for its famous pocket-hole joinery, but that's not all they're good for. Kreg's self-tapping auger point eliminates time-consuming pre-drilling, and these screws are made from the highest quality steel, case-hardened and coated with a dri-lube finish. That means less driving torque for you. This coarse-thread screw has a larger thread diameter and provides greater holding power when driving a screw into soft material such as plywood, particle board, MDF, melamine and pine. The washer head offers a great surface area to seat the screw firmly and helps prevent overdriving. They're on the spendy side, but the quality is worth it.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars You need the coarse AND the fine screws
    I had read a review that stated they were using the fine screws for everything. I found that when using soft pine, and more importantly into plywood, the fine screws were on the edge of getting the job done. All you had to do was remove one of the screws and reinsert it, to see what I mean. In my opinion getting the coarse screws, and the fine screws is essential.
    These screws have a very sharp tip on them, and the shaft thickness is thin as well. Consequently you do not need to pre-drill unless you are using them close to an edge of a soft wood. In that condition the thin edge can bulge a little.
    The great thing about pocket hole screws is their convenience, and strength especially when used in pairs. You will find your self using these more and more often. I even use them on straight joinery by drilling with a forstner bit to create a straight pocket, then go right in with the pocket hole screws. Admittedly by using the kreg jig, and getting an angled installation is stronger than going in straight. The angle prevents tugging on just the threads, but rather creates strength by having to pull the angled shaft through the wood. That is a lot stronger except in the rare condition of pressure being exerted at the direct angle of insertion-not likely.
    Their is some difference of opinion as to whether it is advisable to use glue in conjunction with pocket hole screws. One camp states that since the screws hold so well when done in pairs, that you do not need to use glue. Additionally, that gives you the option of being able to remove the joint, in the event you need to resize for example, or disassemble for shipping. Additionally their argument states that since the pocket hole screw system holds so tight, any glue that is put in the seam will be squeezed out.
    The other camp feels that for security purposes, gluing and screwing is the way to go. In the book, "Building Kitchen Cabinets" by Udo Schmidt (an excellent book by the way) the author states, "The expense of a pocket hole-drilling jig will easily be repaid in the time you save assembling face frames.
    So if you are contemplating getting the Kreg jig assembly, it comes highly recommended. If you are thinking about buying the screws, I recommend you getting the coarse and fine screws in the 1 1/4" format, since they are useful for joining 3/4" wood. Additionally you should get the screw kit with a variety of different length screws for those times when you are dealing with different stock thickness.
    In a recent magazine doing a run off of different manufacturers pocket hole jigs, Kreg took first place in every size jig-first place across the board. Hope this helps.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Self Boaring!
    These screws work really good with Kreg's drill bit with pilot hole tip (3/8" diameter). It is self boaring so it doesn't split the wood. The coarse one works for soft wood like pine and plywood. Use fine screws for hard wood. Wish these screws were a little cheaper. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Bought 2 and both failed
    The concept of the tool and the strength of the glue are good, but I the glue delivery is flawed. Despite following the instructions on capping the nozzle before it cooled, it filled and hardened on two separate attempts. Yes, I bought a second one, figuring I had done something wrong. In the second version the glue never stopped flowing until it fully engulfed the nozzle and hardened.

    I found this product expensive and unacceptable.

    1-0 out of 5 stars What they don't tell you
    I wish I had seen the reviews on Amazon before I bought the kit.

    When I finally read the (very) small print on the glue cartridge itself, I was very annoyed. It tells you that once opened you should use all of the glue within four weeks. You have to open the package to read this fact. There is no mention of it on any marketing blurb, the instructions or even the cartridge's external packaging. It seems the glue is sensitive to moisture and will set in the cartridge if you don't use it pronto. If I had known this, it would have stopped the purchase dead.

    The Titebond website does explain (if you track it down in the FAQ's) that there are techniques you should use to ensure it does last AS LONG AS FOUR WEEKS. Great, that means if you don't know about this, it won't even last that long.

    I now realize that this is a very special-purpose tool. It might work fine for BIG jobs where you need to make lots of fast setting and strong joints. But when will that job come along? I bet if I pull it out in about twenty years when I have such a job to do, I won't be able to find the glue on the market.

    1-0 out of 5 stars just plain bad!
    GREAT GLUE...but you need to find, not a better way, but ANY other way to get it out hot. First tube pressurized and blew out the back, second tube (after hhours of cleaning the tube slot) wouldnt come out the tip smoothly at all. i was'nt going for three strikes...this stuff is too hot to mess arround with. wait for a better model using the same glue to arive.

    3-0 out of 5 stars the good, the bad, and the broken
    I have had the glue kit for 2 years. THE GOOD. It has worked great for several custom counter top applications and small, quick repair jobs. THE BAD. The problem I had was after the glue had been heated and used several times, along with being about a month old, it would not liquify and come out of gun. Half of a tube of glue is garbage. THE BROKEN. After putting an unused tube in the gun, and heating it for 30 minutes, I tried dispensing glue. For some reason the glue didn't soften enough and an ear broke off where the gun locks together. Gun is now usless.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Big disappointment
    The glue is fine, and if it worked I would be very happy. Unfortunately I have been unable to control the flow. On some tubes the glue pours out, which is messy and expensive. And other tubes it is so slow to get the glue out, that by the time you get enough out, it is already setting up. Very aggravating. ... Read more

    This is an excellent unit.I did some serious shopping for a locking box and this is perfect.Durable, reliable and a lot of space.I go away on business trips so often that I need the protection without having to worry about my mail.This is a tough box and a great deal.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Mailbox - We Feel Very Secure
    We are convinced that my husband's identity theft problem was a result of someone taking bills and other mail from our mailbox and using the information.We were so upset by the incident that we were going to get a post office box.Then we found this mailbox, bought it, and are completely satisfied.We never worry about our mail anymore - even when we're on vacation.We have recommended Mailguard to all our friends and neighbors.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Illusion of Safety
    The bolt seems adequate to me, the problem is the hinge mechanism is a joke; I had to pop it into place by hand.A thief could pop this open in 1/2 second.Ironically, the mail compartment is hard to open normally, I will probably need a pry bar just to get my mail.They also only provided 3 out of 4 mounting screws.The flag mounting design is also poor, although I wont ever use it so I don't care.

    Update: while attempting to sand down the door so that it would be openable, it fell onto the floor.The top mail slot broke off, and is now unusable; the bottom ("secure") mail door popped off its hinges.This thing is worthless.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Product
    I highly recommend this mailbox.So well designed and so well made.It carries all the mail of our family of 8 for several days.It cost less than any other locking mailbox I could find.It's good to have this kind of box.I am surprised we haven't had one of these sooner.We love it.
