Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RLG Like the idea- but not well made
I always wanted a pocket hole jig. I did one construction project with it and was very pleased. But the second time I used it the bit got caught in the jig, and nearly took my arm off when it broke apart. After reading the other reviews, I realized my jig most likely got clogged with metal shavings. I always followed the directions: I always held the drill in the right orientation, and started off each hole slowly to make sure it was properly aligned. I always followed the directions and moved the drill up and down to allow the shavings to exit the jig. In hindsight I think the construction of this product is not adequate for my needs (more than 1 project!) I am going back to buy another brand of the same thing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DavidK Great beginner pocket hole jig.
For the price you can't beat it. It works like it should. My one and only complaint is that it doesn't have a way to adjust for material thickness. But besides that it's great.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tee Poorly Made, Cheaply Designed, Terrible Purchase
Used it to make pocket holes in some beautiful stock I had cut down to build an island. BIG mistake.
This thing doesn't work because there are no settings for different thicknesses, and because the cheap metal it's made of wears down with each hole drilled. The first holes drilled were okay. The rest were TERRIBLE--and ruined a lot of good wood! Mad at General Tools for seeking this junk and mad at HD for carrying such a low quality item.
Put down 10 bucks less and buy a small kreg jig. That's what I did after taking this back. Waste of time, wood and effort'

metal jig is actually to tight and doesn't allow the bit to spin freely, I broke the tip of the bit on the 4 pocket. Bought the cheaper version of Kreg and the Kreg is great. Avoid this unit.

I wanted to play with a pocket hole jig without spending a ton, this fit the bill perfect. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a kit to play with and get some experience without selling the farm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Camden97 Solid product
Used product to drill pocket holes to build bedside table, and product performed perfectly. Expect a little bit of metal shavings from the first couple drills, because the drill bit has to be trimmed down by the jig
