CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not worth the purchase 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. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect to play 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. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 February 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tools Just what I wanted at a lower price. Pickup at store was great. January 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 3, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 15, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor quality My mistake for trying to go the cheaper route. The jig only allows one depth. The screw bit stripped after two screws and the amount of metal shavings that come out after each is ridiculous. I am surprised Home Depot even carried something this low grade. August 5, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by useful for adding spacer bar- and more! Needed a pocket screw jig to add spacer bar to cabinet. Worked well-made job much easier! June 30, 2015
