Yes you could, just measure carefully and use the right length screws so they don't come out the opposite side of the board.

Can I use it to join together 5/4 inch ceded deck boards to make a tabletop?

You could, just measure carefully and use the right length screws.

Are any other items/tools, other than a 3/8" drill and Kreg screws, required to use this jig, like specific clamps,etc.?

Clamps help to keep jig from moving while using and to get repeatable results when making more than one screw pocket in one rea.

Is it good for drilling the edge of a 2x4 at the 1 1/2 edge.

Asked by Rich March 28, 2017

Yes that should be no problem. You position it so I'd say if you mount it on center you'll have no problem.

How wide is the drill bit? My drill is adjustable but its a 3/8 will that work?

I don't think you could, it will probably be too tight, I would try it out on a scrap piece of wood first to see if it can work.

The jig worked very well. I wish I purchased one sooner. Only thing I don't like is I see some peices of blue plastic when drilling no matter how careful I am. It looks like the larger jigs are metal the whole way where the bit is inserted.

This is a high quality, inexpensive and simple tool that allows you to make strong butt joints. I used it to make a frame to support a magnetic bulletin board.

My gymnast daughter requested I make her an over-stretcher that she saw on you-tube which required some 45 degree bracing. While I already had the Kreg K4 jig which is great for connecting table aprons that require connecting 2 pieces at 90 degrees, I decided to get this smaller jig so that I could use pocket holes to neatly connect the 45 degree braces. With a little thought the simpler design made it easier to adapt the jig to my specific project.

I bought this just to experiment with pocket holes. The jig does a fine job but clamping and reclamping to your material is time consuming. The product is fine for a quick pocket hole but I would invest in their jig that has three holes and can be stationed on your work area for larger projects.

Excellent for small projects. I just finished an outside vanity that I built and it was a little cumbersome to position each hole to be drilled using a hand held vice. For large projects I would suggest the Kreg tool with the clamp.

It's a bit pricey, but it's a much better deal than buying the drill bit by itself and that's what I really needed. The plastic is high density and high quality and won't wear quickly. The hex shank bit broke on me on the Kreg K4 kit, which is why I purchased this. Kreg replaced the bit for free as I explained to them the bit did not see long-term or rough use. I give it 4 stars solely because of the price. There is comfort in knowing these products are designed and built in the USA.

If you need to join particle board or plywood such as in building cabinets, pocket screws are a great option where other joinery is harder to do or produces inferior results. This little kit is a great way to get started at a very modest price and is quite versatile for joining wood from 1/2 inch to 1-1/2 thick in a variety of combinations. In virtually all cases you screw holes are hidden so the end product looks great. There are many videos on YouTube demonstrating things you can make and how to use pocket screw joinery. If you only have one project or two a year this may be the only kit you will want or if you want to evaluate pocket screw joinery before making a bigger investment then this is the way to go. The drill bit can be used with the more expensive guides should you get them later. Even though I have a biscuit joiner I still find places where this works better or where I use the two in conjunction with one another. One other item you should get is a clamp by Kreg to hold the guide in place unless you have something appropriate. Their clamp is made for this job and is quick release like vice grip pliers. Spend a few minutes checking out all the benefits of pocket screw joinery and you will find out why cabinet makers use them as well.

Pretty impressive little product
Just put together a 12' long window seat and did not have this before and used a myriad of L brackets. I saw the infomercial on TV for the big one so i decided i'd give the small one a try. This thing is GREAT! I will be using it on my next project and possibly buying the larger jig.

Great deal at $20
This kit can get you into pocket-hole joinery at a minimal cost, assuming you already own a powerful clamp, such as an Irwin Quick-Grip, which can be used for a multitude of other tasks. If you're doing a production run of 50 or more holes, I'd recommend the $99 kit, with the cam-clamp jig, which will speed things up a lot.

Price is a seller, small but works well
This pocket jig needs to be clamped down well to keep it in place. It makes a nice slot for a screw to join two pieces of wood while hiding the screw. Apron can be adjusted for different depths. Excellent product saves you $$$ compared to more expensive jigs and works well.
