Page 28: Figure 2 callout
The callout in Figure 2 shows 5/16"-18 x 2" hex bolts, nuts, and washers but they are too big. The callout should say 1/4"-20 x 2" bolts with matching nuts and washers. Note the materials and hardware list is also affected by this change.
Page 32: Materials and Hardware
All the 5/16” hardware items should be changed as follows: (26) 1/4"-20 x 2” Hex-Head Bolts ; (26) 1/4"-20 Hex Nuts ; (26) 1/4" Washers.
Page 51: Source for Leg Levelers
The source for the Leg Levelers was omitted from the original issue. They came from Rockler, part number 81239.

The 1 7/8" center-to-center distance between the slots in the Kreg Klamp Trak is incorrect. The correct dimension is 1 1/2".
