Kreg KKS2000 Klamp Table
Kreg, the makers of the ingenious Pocket Hole System are set to release a new work table on August 1st. Although somewhat designed for use with their various pocket hole tools, the table looks like a good addition to any woodworker's shop.
The 21" by 33" table top, made of glue-resistant melamine, has removable 'clamp tracks' on two sides. On the tracks are locking Vice-Grip style clamps as well as these little movable blocks to help with aligning your project. The clamps have little pads on them, so there are no worries about damaging your work piece. The table stand is adjustable from 31" to 36", has built in levelers, and can be fitted with casters.
We can think of about a dozen times in the past week when this kind of clamping table would have come in handy. No more setting up a homemade jig or trying to con someone into giving us a hand holding something.
If the work table is built to the standards of the Pocket Hole System, then it's definitely something worth looking at. The table is going to retail for about $400, or you can get just the table top for about $250.
