    Chip collector for older Kreg Pocket Hole Jig

    Kreg’s newer jig comes with a chip collector but the one that was bought for me a couple of years ago does not. Last winter my grandson Ethan (then 3) and I were working together using the jig and he observed that it made a mess.

    Once we had finished drilling the holes, Ethan spent considerable time attempting to gather the chips and dust up. This encouraged me to make a little “house” that pressure fits onto the pocket hole jig and into which I can fit a shop-vac hose. It really works well. Ethan agrees!

    It only took about an hour to make this and I wonder why I took so long to get around to it.
    Cheers, Frank

    GREAT idea... I have one and will build this little goodie for it. All of those drill chips sorta get in the way so this will make it more efficient also.

    I also have holes drilled in my mounting board for the extra parts so they do not get lost.

    Thanks...

    Ethan approved, don't get much better than that!

    I did something similar, but not as nice looking, but it works!

    Cheers!
