Rated 2 out of 5 by Should have bought the Kreg Walking through HD and stumbled on this. Was going to purchase the Kreg for a farmhouse table I'm building but when I saw this I couldn't pass up the value. By the time I drilled the 12th hole, the drill bit wandered so much it drilled the hole close to the edge of the wood. When I screwed the joint together the wood cracked apart and was useless. (see the photo). I thought it was odd that there were so many metal shavings coming out as I drilled the pocket holes. They should have stronger metal than aluminum. And I should have waited and just ordered the Kreg. Lesson learned the hard way. May 28, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor, cheap design Two issues: 1. The holes are fixed and properly placed only for 3/4" stock. With any other thickness, the screws don't exit the wood at the center, which is required for a strong, stable joint. 2. The aluminum jig is ground away by the hardened steel drill bit. After a few dozen holes, the precision is gone and the angle of the holes wanders. November 9, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible, Terrible, Terrible! If you're considering buying this item, please, PLEASE read this review first. I wanted a Kreg Jig for a long time, but balked at purchasing one because of the price; I wanted the model with the attached clamp, and it was upwards of $140. So when I saw this version of a pocket-hole jig, I decided to try it out and save some money in the process. Big mistake. It is garbage. Pure and simple. The construction is laughable, it's flimsy, and worst of all? It didn't work properly. That's because the sorry metal it's made of eventually shaved away from the inner holes after drilling a few times, so it caused the drill bit to (unbeknownst to me) shift all over the place. And that was only after drilling about 20 holes! Because of the shifting, the holes I drilled ended up being right at the edge of the wood, and when I screwed the pieces together of course the ends snapped like twigs. All my beautiful wood that I'd used up until that point to build my piece was ruined! Thank God for Home Depot's fabulous customer service, because I was allowed to return it even though it was opened. However, I am still irritated with the General Tool Company because they owe me for the wood that their rotten tool chewed to pieces! Do yourself a favor and don't buy this trash. Kreg Jig has a mini version that is only about 20 bucks, and that's what I got when I took this junk back. The manufacturer should be ashamed to even sell this trash; as a matter of fact, if they gave it away the price would be too high. Don't do it! November 22, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good for a little project. If you are only going to use it a number of times, sure it is worth the money. The pilot holes seem to get more drlled out everytime I make a pass. So eventually the tool will be junk. Do yourself a favor and buy the Jeg jig, its worth the hundred bucks. February 18, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Decent for small jobs Used this jig for a few years and it's performed pretty well. I haven't had the sort of problems some reviewers have mentioned about the guide holes losing their accuracy over time but I will say this: the screw-clamp is not fun to use for big jobs. It's fiddly and time-consuming to tighten it down for each hole and if you've got a big project, you'll get sick of it very quickly. That, and your fingers will hurt from the tiny grip you've got to tighten down every time. So, it's worked alright for me, but I'm shopping for something better now that I've got a bigger project in mind. August 19, 2012
