I had been thinking about getting a jig like this for a couple of years, but the larger version was too expensive for my infrequent woodworking projects. I was excited to try this version of the Kreg with a box of pocket hole screws. This made my projects so much easier! I love that it made it possible to hide most of the hardware on my most recent projects: shelves for the laundry room and a doll bunk bed for my daughters' closet.

drill bit broke on first try
I purchased Kreg given the reputation it has of making durable study tools. But the drill bit broke down the first time I tried it, and also I saw small fragments of the plastic chipping off.Of course I expect a replacement or a refund. But what is most upsetting is that I could not get my project completed in time.

I tend to use biscuits rather than pocket screws for my woodworking projects, but on occasion I have a need for using a screw for some situations. I therefore wanted some limited ability for drilling pocket screw holes. This unit fits my needs. You can adjust the tool for 1/2, 3/4, and 3/2 inch depth of wood which is done rather easily, and even includes a gauge/key that lets you measure the stock quickly. You can also add additional tools and have them join together so you can make evenly spaced pairs of holes. For my limited use this will be great, though I don't see any robustness issues that would prevent someone using these more regularly.
Everything you need but the clamp, but who doesn’t have a clamp they can use? I like that the bit is marked where to put the collar for each size, 1/2 in, 3/4 in and 1-1/2 in. Takes all the guess work out of it. It’s nice that they combined the material thickness gauge/allen wrench into one tool. The jig has an adjustable stopping index built in so you position it the correct distance from the edge. By using this jig, you don’t have to worry about splitting the wood when screwing the screw in once you’ve predrilled your hole. It’s best if you clamp it to hold the jig in place. For now, I’m just using an old clamp wood clamp but I may splurge and purchase the “KHC-1410 or KHC6 Kreg Clamp” in the future.
If you want to do 2 evenly spaced holes at the same time, look at the KPHJ320.
I only wish it came in its own carrying case.

I have several other pocket hole jigs, I prefer them over this one for the simple fact that this one is too brittle. After one use the tab on the bottom broke, maybe I clamped it too hard, so it does not lock in place when I set the width. Aside from that includes new drill bit with the widths etched in and a hole in the collar bit to see them. This allows you to easily set the width without the need for another piece of equipment. I have the portable small rectangle jig and if you have that one already there really is no need to get this one aside from the new drill bit. I would not recommend this kit.

It took me some time to figure out how to use this Pocket Hole Jig. Once I felt I understood how to set up the jig, I practiced to make sure I had it correct. I drilled 6 pocket holes and with clamping the jig, in pre marked locations, it took about 50 seconds for each drilled hole to be completed. I needed a bike stand for my road bike when I’m not using it, since these bikes don’t have kick stands! Now I need to add pocket hole plugs (dowels) to hide the screw holes and finish the stand. Very pleased with the strength and final product.

This is one handy tool, something to carry in your tool box with the drill bit, the adjustment tool with a built in allen wrench for adjusting the depth of the drill bit. The drill bit went into the wood like butter, nice and sharp. With the set tip I was able to drive the screw into the wood for a clean joint. Kreg makes very nice tools for working with wood. I use some of their other tools in my shop

I have other Kreg pocket hole jogs, and I use them all the time. I don't think this one is going to see a lot of use. If it was my first jig, it would be a different story. But it doesn't offer enough advantages over the other jigs to learn a completely different setup.
This jig is a complete redesign of the jigs. It requires relearning how you set it up. Instead of the end of the jig hooking over the end of the board, you have the jig sticking out over the end of the board. The stop is in the overhanging part, and buts into the end of the board. The jig is a lot narrower the the ones I an used to. It requires more work to make sure it is square to the board.
The idea of being able to gang several of these jigs together, along with spacers, may be handy. Or it may end up being a sales gimmick. I am going to wait to buy more parts for now.
This Kreg Pocket Hole Jig 310 is really handy. Though I’ve had several occasions when I wanted to drill pocket holes over the years, I’ve never owned a jig. Kreg has a great reputation for woodworking products. The 310 is ideal for single holes with narrow stock, but oil also work well on wider stock. One upcoming project is running a 120 Volt, 20 Amp circuit with multiple receptacles in the unfinished walls of my garage. Since the garage will likely remain unfinished for the foreseeable future and things are always getting stored between the studs, exposed wires hanging between them would be dangerous. I’ll mount 2 x 4’s between the studs for the Romex to be mounted to. Toe nailing is out of the question for me, so I thought this jig would be a good way to mount those pieces. I tried it out with a couple of pieces of 2 x 4 and found that it will be perfect for that job, as well as others. This jig will make it very easy to keep all the pieces on the same level, protecting the wire. Great little tool

A very handy little pocket hole jig can be used just about anywhere you need it. Sturdy plastic with a metal drill guide comes with bit and lock collar, #2 driver, thickness gauge with built in collar tightener. Bit is marked with depth size as is the jig itself. Has a sliding plastic thickness setter for precision placement.
Would have gotten 5 stars but must have #2 size pocket hole screws for the driver to work.

Recent cleanup and organizing efforts have convinced me I need to become a better cabinet maker, just to make storage cabinets and shelves sized to fit what needs storing or mounting, and also fit in the space I have available. I have made dowelled and router-cut joints in the past, and the results can be good. But they require a commitment of time and patience I don’t have. And the room to leave things out when I need to break away. I need garage shelves, and utility cabinets, and big lockable boxes to store tool bags and power tools in plastic cases. More shipping crate than heirloom furniture. I ordered this Kreg Pocket-Hole Jig 310, as a result of seeing one used to make nice looking butt joints with concealed fasteners. So far, so good. I made a few test joints with it, and I was impressed. It is fast. If you take the time to line things up properly, it is accurate. And the joint are fairly hard to break. My issues were 1.) clamping the drill guide down tight enough that it wouldn't move while drilling. And 2.) clamping the workpieces together tightly enough so tightening the screw didn't cause a misaligned joint. But my clamps were plastic quick-release clamps, and cheap C-clamps I was afraid to overtighten on the plastic jig body. I did not use the illustrated Kreg clamp, though my vise-grip welding clamps would probably have worked. All that aside, it is fast, and that is what I want. I need to build utility storage, not machine parts. I would like it to look nice, but I don't want to spend a lot of time making set ups, adjusting and improvising jigs, trial fitting parts, etc. For me, doing this means it probably isn't going to happen, and I just go buy something that isn't quite what I want. Or stack boards on blocks. If you just want to get it done, I think this is a solution. Just don't forget the screws, they are not included.

I really liked the older version of the Kreg Pocket Hole jigs and thought that they were super user friendly. But Kreg has really out done themselves with this updated pocket hole jig. The jig is super user friendly in the set up making it almost mistake free. Plus the jig, drill bit, and driver bit are high quality. The jig itself is made of the classic kreg blue plastic that first glance seems like it would be cheap and easy to break but once you actually get it in your hands and start to use it you realize how strong and sturdy the plastic is and you don't have to worry about breaking it. the though the jig is primarily made of plastic the drill guide is made of steel so you do not have to worry about drilling through that or widening out the drill guide through multiple uses.
The set up now is so easy as the jig has clear size indicator on the back end of the jig and you set the matter size with a clip on the under side of the jig. The Hex key used to tighten the drill bit stop collar also doubles as a guide to measure material thickness ranging from 1/2 to 1-1/2. The drill also contains the corresponding measurement range on it so you can properly set you depth guide. The jig also has a no slip matting on the underside to make sure you don't have any movement when you are making your drill hole.
Overall the kreg 310 is super easy to use, super easy to set up and very good quality. Additionally the jig provided within the 310 can be added to the 320 or another 310 to allow you to do multiple pocket holes. Overall a must have for anyone looking into doing woodworking.

I have one of the first pocket hole jigs made from this brand. I use it for many projects. I occasionally make picture frames, small shelves and other wood gifts that have joints. These pocket hole joints are by far the best and strongest joints. This jig lets you quickly set the stop for different thickness boards, then clamp to the board. The drill bit with the stop is easily set by finding the thickness to match. The bit stop has a circle “see through” to match the thickness your drilling. The harden steel guide should last for years. I also found there are add-ons you can be snapped together to add more guides, spacers and arrange as needed. Nice tool

I generally don't use pocket holes in my woodworking, but I do make simple shop furniture/storage and I sometimes find myself needing some kind of large-ish plywood box. The Kreg 310 is perfect for this. It's inexpensive enough to where I won't feel bad if I only use it once every 2 years, yet it's really good quality and will get the job done perfectly. This works best when the pieces you are affixing together would be too large to put in a jig. Instead you can take the jig to the work. The Kreg clamps work best, but a quick grip type clamp will work also. Clamps where the screw twists do not work as well because the twisting force will overcome the sticky bottom and skew the jig.
This kit could not be any easier to use. They even simplified determining material thickness and setting the drill bit depth collar. The only challenge I'll have with this is not losing it before I need it again. Maybe I should make a box for it..

This Kreg 310 Pocket Hole Jig kit is a nice precise tool for making pilot holes for screw joining ½”, ¾”, 1” and 1 ½” thick wood members at 90 degrees, The kit includes the jig, a combination Allen wrench/thickness gauge, a special drill and stop collar and a 6” long square bit to drive screws. The jig has a nice adjustable stop indexed to position it the correct distance from the edge of the work. You will need to use your old clamp to hold the jig to the work. The drill is nicely marked to designate the correct position of the collar to match the thickness of the work and the thickness gauge/Allen wrench tightens the collar to the drill. I can’t imagine joining wood with pocket holes without one of these jigs which actually makes the job easy. One thing that would improve this nice tool would be to change the molded bubble pack package to a molded hinged box to keep the 5 pieces together. I will make a wooden box to do that but would gladly pay a few cents more to have it come in one.

Comprehensive little kit that makes short work of pocket holes. All parts are well made and reliable. The easy set drill bit means only one drill bit is required to do two jobs – I like that. Instructions are both text and graphics and after following them once the process is easy to remember – see video. I found the jig had to be clamped down ultra-tight to prevent it slipping when the drill trigger was pulled. The only thing I would love to have seen with this great little set is a reusable case with a place for each of the six pieces – including instructions.

Very well designed basic jig which includes a useful thickness gauge w/ built in hex keys for setting the drill stop collar (see photo). The jig has a rubber sole that helps it from moving when drilling. Also included are the stepped drill and screw driver.
This jig initially appeared to be a straight forward pocket-hole jig – with presets for 1/2" 3/4" and 1-1/2” material thicknesses, but I tried to use this on 5/4 oak – the material thickness gauge put it into an “unknown” zone – time to read the instructions – set the jig for 3/4" thickness, but use a longer screw – simple enough if you read the instructions. The preset settings on the jig and markings on the drill make this very easy to use. This jig can be used with a simple trigger clamp.
According to the instructions, this jig can also be used in repair applications by sliding apart the two piece jig body (see photo).
A simple case and some sample screws would have been nice.

This Kreg Pocket Hole jig 310 is a very handy device. While obviously smaller than the other models it is no less useful in its simplicity. It can be used where the larger models can not fit, such as boxes that need reinforcement or projects where the large clamp can not be used. Like the other models it includes the stepped drill bit and collar for setting the proper depth, a depth setting guide as pictured, a square bit for driving screws and an instruction booklet describing complete instructions for its use. The jig has a steel insert to provide years of use without causing any wera on the jig itself.
I have been using pocket holes for building cabinets resulting in faster and stronger builds. I wish I had known about Kreg jigs earlier. It wold have made many of my projects better.

The Kreg Pocket Hole Jig 310 is the perfect tool for fastening wood when making cabinets, drawers, or just performing repairs in tight spaces. The kit contains a Material Thickness Stop that is used for 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, or 1 1/2 inch thick stock. The kit also contains a Easy-Set Drill Bit, Stop Collar, Material Thickness Gauge / Hex Wrench, and a 6 inch Square-Drive Bit. This kit makes building DIY projects easier and simple. The Jig insures the holes are at a perfect angle and depth. This is specifically designed to use with the Kreg Pocket Screws, which are not included. It comes with an owner’s manual.

If you've never used a pocket hole jig before and you need to join pieces of wood without visible connectors, do yourself a favor and pick up one of these pocket hole jigs. If you're not familiar with pocket holes, they're basically holes drilled through one piece of wood and into an adjacent piece of wood, allowing for a screw to be driven into both pieces of wood for an invisible connection. I've used a cheaper jig in the past to great success when building things like quick shelves or even a standup desk, but the metal collar the bit goes through on that cheaper jig began to get worn away by the drill bit because it just wasn't made to the specifications of this jig ...the Kreg jig is so much better in design and quality. I just got it the other day and did a couple test pocket holes, and they worked great. You can used specially-designed screws, but I've found that even drywall screws work fine for basic, simple projects that don't need to hold too much weight. The best part is that the pocket holes and screws are hidden away out of sight in the finished project. The screws draw the wood pieces together very tightly, but a thin layer of wood glue where the wood pieces come together will make the joint even stronger. It's so quick and easy, but with professional results. Comes with easy to read instructions.

Great additional to the kreg set I Have already. The pocket hole jig is perfect for those quick and easy single holes you need to make that might be too small or big to use the standard two hole Kreg not. Make sure to use the clamp to ensure the jig does not move. This kit belongs in every DIYer tool bag. The drill bit that comes with it is also a nice little bonus.

I've really been interested in the Kreg Pocket Hole system for a while now but never pulled the trigger on buying a set. I'm not familiar with their entire product lineup but this seems to be their most basic introductory set and requires a couple additional items to get started that you may or may not already have, such as the screws and a clamp. I've gotten by so far in my life using pilot holes drilled on a steep angle, toenailing with finish nails, and a number of other "old school" tricks to get the job done. Not anymore. This fantastic idea makes it easy to make production-grade pilot holes every time on your project.
However, this introductory set is small and seems to be better suited for either the extreme occasional user or an advanced user who needs several sizes of pocket hole jigs. If you fit into either of those categories, this may be perfect for you. Overall the quality seems high, and a lot of thought and design went into the engineering. Years of on-the-job use in shops as well as onsite in construction sites prove the worthiness of the Kreg system.

This is my first purchase of a Kreg product, and I was not disappointed. I only need to use this pocket hole jig approximately once a year based on the amount of work I do, but after using it with a combination of the price and size, this pick up was a no brainer. I spent almost an hour watching videos and drilling pilot holes in some scrap wood before my real job. I didn’t become an expert, but very capable for a first time user. I ended up fixing a broken/wobbly leg on my dinning room chair in no time. I did some additional work on putting a frame together for a table support as well and the jig makes the process a breeze. Due to the small size it fit easily in my tool box waiting for the next project. One thing to note, if you don’t have a couple of clamps kicking around, this product doesn’t come with one and your definitely going to need a few.

This is the first Kreg tool that I’ve owned. I’ve seen them advertised in woodworking and home improvement magazines and seen them in the tool aisle at Home Depot, but until now I haven’t had a project that I thought would benefit from the pocket hole jig.
I used this 310 jig to build a step stool from red oak. I thought I had a sufficiently simple design for a first use, but I was wrong. It would have been better to start with a project where the angles are all 90 degrees.
The basic implementation of the pocket hole jig was straightforward. I spent about an hour viewing the useful instructional and project videos on the Kreg website. There were several things that were particularly challenging for use of the jig on my design. First, the legs on the stool were angled at 70 rather than 90 degrees. This made using the drill guide a little tricky. I found that drilling across the grain is more difficult than drilling with the grain. And because my Home Depot does not stock the oak hole plugs, I had to improvise and make my own by hand.
The Kreg pocket hole jig does make a very secure joint and I am impressed with its simplicity. I do think it will be best suited for joints that are not visible; the screws are unsightly and most folks will probably want to plug the holes.
When I needed new furniture, I took a trip to the (Swedish place). I was not impressed. Flimsy particle board construction, complicated assembly. So I went to the local lumberyard and got a truckload of nice hard dimensional yellow pine, and built my own. Later I found that the good 'Radiata' pine at Home Depot is equivalent, if not better. These woods are easy to work, not too heavy, and hard enough to wear well even as tabletops. I'm inserting this to show that I know a thing or two about woodworking.
If I had had a Kreg jig back then, all that work would have been a lot easier. Just clamp it down tight, and zap a pocket hole wherever you want it. Planning how to hide the pocket holes would have been no worse than how I did it, and probably a lot easier. The kit contains everything you need except the screws. I watched the video to see how to set it up, and then I bored a few test holes in a piece of scrap plywood, see photo. The Kreg jig makes it so easy, it feels like cheating.

First off, let me say that I have a few other Kreg products. That said, they all use the same basic engineering, the more expensive ones have more "bells & whistles" of course. I got the Kreg Pocket Jig for it's simplicity. It uses the same bits and screws as it's more expensive cousins, but in a slimmed down version. If you need to do a one-off project or just need to do a limited number of joints, this is a great entry-level tool. Despite it's low entry point, It will still do a great job drilling pocket holes. It comes with a standard Kreg bit, a gauge to determine your material thickness, and pre-set alignments on both the drill bit and the drill guide. My gauge did not seem to measure true on a piece of 3/4" stock. The drill guide is rather clearly marked to set the depth gauge, and even my tired eyes could make it out. Same with the guide. The thickness gauge also has a handy allen key to set the depth gauge.
About the only thing I don't like about this, is the lack of any container to store it in. That's not that big of a deal because on larger Kreg sets that have a provided case, there's never enough room to put additional screws and plugs if you use them. I wind up putting them all into a small plastic case, and I will no doubt do the same with this set. The size should be just right to drop in my tool bag for the occasional times I'll use it. I used this to install an end panel next to my dishwasher. The only problem I had was taking the panel off to use the guide. Not that big a deal, but most jigs don't seem to be designed to use in place.
It comes with a square bit to fit the Kreg screws, and the bit is extra long so the drill/driver chuck will clear the material during installation. If you're on a budget, this is an economical way to get into using pocket joining.
