Disclaimer.. this is cheap modification and not as good as the original K4 , but who cares...

Here is Video Link https://youtu.be/g320wdopZ8w

I have bough the R3 jig which cost ~40$. There is another more expensive model have a clamping mechanism.

I have saw some guys on the internet modifying there jig to duplicate the design. So I have decided to do it myself too. but instead of completely removing the sliders I decided to clamp the jig using small screws to allow me to reuse great Kreg design features already built in. This way I do not need to hold the wood a the specific hight when I am clamping it down. - I hope this makes sense.

Enjoy.

Step 2: Drill Everything Together

1. Connect everything together as you see in the pictures.

3.Clamp you jig to the wooden wall using two small screws/bolts.

Step 3: Connect the Toggle Clamp and Drill Holes.

Clamp the thinest and thickest boards to you jig and attache a toggle clamp so it will always be able to clamp the wood pieces.

I have glued a little piece of fabric to the bolt to reduce marring on the wood.
