Questions & Answers

Will this kit put pocket holes in 2x4 lumber?

Asked by: Drew1988
The jig is meant for thinner boards. It can hold a board up to 1 1/2" thick, as most pine 2x4s are. 1 5/8" boards will not fit. That said, the screws don't come in at the right angle with 1 1/2" boards -- the jig needs to be slid back farther than the clamp will allow. It can be easily modified to accommodate 2x4s and 2x6s, though. Cut off the clamp part of the jig with a hacksaw or angle grinder, leaving just the "top" face that has the holes in it for the drill bit. Once you have modified it, you can use a C-clamp to attach it to your project board. This jig and kit is an excellent value as a general-purpose pocket hole tool, since it comes with 24 plugs, 24 fine-thread wood screws and 24 coarse-thread screws.

Can you join two boards together to make a table top

Asked by: Brian
That depends Brian, I used a pocket hole joint to join together two lengths of butcher block counter top (alternating sides while drilling) and it worked perfectly. Of course a table top will flex more than a counter top so you might have to add something like thin plywood straps to stiffen up the joint. It all depends on the size of the table, where the top will be fastened to the frame etc. It may not be the "preferred" way, but it will work. Read this it may be helpful. http://www.woodmagazine.com/woodworking-tips/techniques/joinery/end-to-end

Can this jig make pocket holes in different size (thickness) lumber? I just see 2x4s being used in the examples.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I bought one of these because I liked that the clamp was integrated with the jig. After only about a dozen holes the tip of the drill bit broke off. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and took it back for another, and again after about a dozen holes the tip broke off the bit in the same way. The second time I took it back and spent an extra $10 for the better known brand of pocket hole jig and have had zero problems through hundreds of holes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool, easy to use I read the reviews between this and more expensive products before purchasing for about two weeks. I decided to purchase this to work on a project of building a queen bed. Boy am I happy I did. The tool was easy to use, just slap in the board and make the pocket holes. I did make a few mistakes on some scrap pieces and did see some metal shavings, but that was more my inexperience than a flaw in the tool's design. Hold the drill level, everything works great. Once I figured it out on the scraps of wood, I was making every joint with pocket screws and gorilla glue. I am happy with the way the project turned out. I was able to turn a 4 or 5 day project that would have used dowels and glue into a 2 day project using this pocket screws and glue. I have attached a picture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works well but lacks awesomeness I was in the market for a pocket hole jig and of course saw the Kreg and it's high price. I immediately started looking for a cheaper alternative. This was one of the options. In short I bought it and ended up returning it because it was a little janky. They cut corners to make a cheap alternative to the high-price one mentioned above. The clamping mechanism is no bueno. Nothing beats an actual clamp. The wing-nut thumb-screw just doesn't hold. It'll help you get the holes you want but I would NOT recommend this for lots of holes. You'll go nuts in frustration. Spend the $ on the higher price one, keep your sanity, and do pro pocket holes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK for 1in work I purchased this kit for use on a small furniture project. It is easy to use, but has one big drawback. It is only useful for 1inch lumber. Because the jig forces you to use one set distance from edge it is not useful when using larger lumber. In my case, I wanted to use pocket holes to screw a tabletop to a base from the bottom in order to avoid holes/plugs etc. The base is constructed of 2 inch lumber. Using this jig results in a hole very close to the edge of the board which is not what I was looking for in terms of strength/stability. It does what it is advertised to do, but for larger wood dimensions I would recommend the Kreg Mini Kreg Jig Pocket Hole Kit (Model # MKJKIT) which allows you to set your distance from edge and therefore the location of your exit hole.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Idea, TERRIBLE Quality I am about to return my 2nd one of these. The first kit lasted for 5 holes before the tip of the drill bit broke off. Basically, the kit's entire problem is in the poor workmanship of the metal guide holes. The angle isn't quite right, leading to the drill bit scraping the edges. Between the tiny metal fragments and the heat/speed of the bit, it creates a tiny metal "barrier" inside the guide hole and renders the product unusable. I figured it was a faulty drill bit / metal guide piece in the first kit, so I went back to Home Depot and exchanged it for another kit. This time, I examined the metal guides a bit closer before using them. 1. First thing I noticed is that the holes were not the same shape as the first kit's. The first kit seemed to have two holes that both had different angles (you could easily tell just by eyeballing the height of the opening). I figured this was intentional. The second kit's exit holes were almost identical in height. I used both and they produced nearly identical drilled holes, which was a different behavior from the first kit. That's shoddy workmanship right here - two products behaving THAT differently. 2. Second thing I noticed is that the exit holes on the 2nd kit were not uniform in shape. I'm not sure how they were manufactured, but there were imperfections all around each exit hole. Again, shoddy workmanship / manufacturing. You can see this in the photo I've attached. 3. The second kit lasted for 9 holes before the same metal barrier cropped up again. The second guide hole didn't work at all. The result was just a burning smell and a bunch of metal dust all over the semi-hole in the wood. This is particularly frustrating - a total of 14 holes drilled between two kits and two separate trips to Home Depot. 4. I did not use any of the "coarse" screws but the "fine" screws were about 50/50 in terms of getting a good one. After the 6th screw, the next three had imperfections in the threading of the screw, basically resulting in a rough hole into the wood instead of a tight coupling. After FINALLY getting them out, I switched over to some similar-length wood screws I had bought for a different project, and those worked a LOT better - even better than the first ones that seemed to go in fine. In the end, the only usable piece was the drill bit from the 2nd kit. Instead of driving to Home Depot for a 3rd time to exchange the kit AGAIN, I just ended up carefully eyeballing the angle and manually drilled in the last few holes. It worked well after I did a few test holes, but it definitely was not as clean and uniform as I would have gotten if the metal guide simply worked as it should. I cannot recommend this product to anyone. Despite the name, there is nothing "pro" about the quality of this product. It's a very cool idea, and if it were manufactured better, I would definitely keep it.
