Kreg Pocket Hole Jig Use

My question is about using the Kreg K4 system . When adjusting the drill for a (1 and 1/2 )inch size stock thickness, do you lock the drill stop collar when the drill bit aligns with the white mark that says ( 1 and 1/2 and 1 and 1/4 ) or do I push the drill bit all the way in so it stops at the very end of the plastic cut out ? Thanks George

Lock the bottom of the stop to the line corresponding to the thickness of the wood you are drilling

Fix for Kreg Pocket hole jig question

I called Kreg today and they said that the mark on the jig for 1 and 1/2 and 1 and 1/4 are used for both sizes and you line it up right at the white line. Thanks for your help.. George

I used my K4 for the first time on 1 1/2" stock this past weekend. I measured it to the 1 1/2" depth and the collar was all the way at the end of the bit. I backed it off a bit to the 1 1/4" mark and ended up using that depth. I was very pleased with the results. Worked great!
