      Q:Is it adjustable and will it accept 3? screws and bury them?
      by|Feb 28, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  It is not adjustable, the only adjustable component on this unit is the knob that holds the board in place while drilling. Size of screws that will be buried is determined by the thickness of the board that the screw is going into, i cant make a determination without more information.

          Best for small jobs!
          This is a great item for small jobs around the house . I have had this tool since 2010 and it has been very useful . I have fixed a dinner table,coffee table,created two fish tank stands and made two end table replicas of picture shown. As with any tool it must be used correctly and maintained.My neighbor borrowed it to fix a screen door a few months back and has yet to return it so I will be buying another maybe the kit this time around .

          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.

            My first pocket screw jig ever. It fits the bill for now but may order others later. I am a retired commercial carpenter doing woodworking as a hobby and building fine home furniture. Will be a customer a while, as I have been since 1988.

            It’s a great tool except that when you drill some of the aluminum comes off.

            Not the fanciest - but it does the job
            This is by no means the fanciest tool you will ever buy, but it does what it was designed to do. It's a little rough around the edges as evidenced by the apearance of some metal filings, but that did not seem to affect its performance.

              Limited utility. Can only accomodate a narrow range of wood and orientations. Would recommend the Kreg system as it is much more flexible for a variety of applications. Good idea, but it just isn’t all that useful.
