I've been looking at pocket hole jigs for a long time. I was never ready to spend the amount of money required for the Kreg brand. This unit is less expensive and the kit included several sizes of screws, the drill bit & stop collar, screw driver bit and some plugs. When I first read the directions I was a little confused. Once I was ready to actually test the unit I found that it easy to setup and the directions are easy to follow. This was my first experience with a pocket hole jig. One of the first features I noticed is that you can use this on anything from 1/2" to 1" thick material. The unit is relatively easy to adjust. I followed the directions and had it set to drill holes in a couple of minutes. The unit is very sturdy, but light since it is made of cast aluminum. I had to tighten a few screws as one of the pieces was loose. After that the unit worked well. The clamp holds the wood securely. The drill bit is extremely sharp and cut easily. I was only using pine so I would expect it drill fast. I used some of the provided screws. The screws held the joint extremely well.

HIGH QUALITY; WELL-DESIGNED: EASY TO USE; INSTRUCTIONS LACK DETAILS — The WEN Metal Pocket Hole J...
HIGH QUALITY; WELL-DESIGNED: EASY TO USE; INSTRUCTIONS LACK DETAILS — The WEN Metal Pocket Hole Jig Kit with L-Base, Step Drill Bit, and Self-Tapping Screws is a versatile set for making pocket joints. It assumes that you have used a pocket hole jig before so it lacks instructions on how to use it. Even a link to an online video would help. One important shortcoming is specifying how to determine the depth for the drill bit when using the jig. Another shortcoming is not noting that the underside of the jig specifies what size screw to use. So I erred in not drilling the hole deep enough and using too long of a screw. See photo. After correcting these errors, the jig worked OK but it still seemed that it did not make a strong joint for ½" stock. The angle on the jig may work better for thicker stock. For someone familiar with pocket hole jigs, the operating instructions may be fine. It is important to check your parts list; my set lacked the hex wrenches. The jig allows board thicknesses from ½" to 1 ½" (for 2 x 4s). The kit includes a drill bit, self-tapping screws of 4 sizes, a screwdriver bit, and hole plugs. Since it doesn’t come with a case, care should be taken when opening the box if you want to use it for storing the kit. An example of its versatility and good design, for making pocket holes in ½" stock, it has two elevation screws for resting the piece on so that the drill bit does not go in too far. Then there is a place on the jig to store these screws when not in use. The distance between the screw holes may be adjusted. It may be helpful to use a test piece initially to learn the intricacies of the jig. The jig has a 2-year warranty. It is made in China.

I do a lot of woodworking for family and friends. Since receiving the Wen portable pocket hole jig a few days ago I have been able to speed up completion on several projects. The jig in my opinion appears heavy-duty being made from anodized aluminum with hardened steel drill guides. The jig is designed to be used as a portable device on the job site or mounted to your workbench. The jig kit comes with a step drill bit, self-tapping screws in four sizes, pocket hole plugs, and an L-base to allow drilling holes in a tight space. The instruction manual is well-written and illustrated. This tool completely eliminates any guess work on my part; I drill a perfect hole every time. The tool is so heavy duty and well-made I expect to pass it on to my grandchildren. See attached photographs. This is another excellent product from Wen; well done!

If you are an experienced woodworker, or just beginner, and you love pocket hole fasteners, this is a jig for you. I can't say enough about this portable pocket hole jig from WEN. I must admit I really like Wen products. I own several items already. I especially like the fact that this jig is all aluminum!! My older jig has metal drill bit guides but the rest is plastic. Another reason why I really like this is that is screws to a work surface making it solid as a rock. The last major reason I like it is that this jig can be used on 5 different thicknesses of wood. Not three like my old one. The sizes are 1/2", 3/4",1", 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" thick. This jig also comes with an 800# for help. :Lastly, the jig comes with 4 different sized screws and wood plugs to cover the screws. Included is a great booklet that has detailed instructions and many clear pictures. If you are into woodworking, or knows somebody who is, this WEN pocket hole jig is for you. Home Depot got it right again!!!

This is my second pocket hole jig, but the first one with a workpiece clamp and made of aluminum, not plastic. Heavy but portable and easy to use. Easily adjustable, and with removable drill guides for hard to get at spots. Complete with step drill bit, square drive bit, assorted screws, and wood plugs for the pocket holes. I will mount this on a piece of lumber that I can clamp to my bench or other cabinet for ease and secure use. WEN did it right with this tool.

This is an economical pocket hole jig. If you are doing any volume of pocket holes then you really need to get a jig like this. The only complaint I have is the drill bit. I got a lot of tear out when doing some Pine boards. Could have been the boards but it was pretty bad
