Pocket holes have traditionally been used when joining rails to tabletops, or skirts to chair seats.
They let you use regular screws in places that would otherwise require extra-long screws or specialized fasteners. Pocket holes also leave a screw head below a surface, but fully accessible for disassembly (although usually in a location hidden from normal view).
A. The double-guide model lets you drill a pair of 15° pocket holes from 7/8" to 2-7/8" apart, and comes with two pairs of interchangeable hardened steel bushings for drilling 1/8" and 3/8" holes. Intended for material 3/4" (or more) thick. Just clamp the guide to your work and drill.
B. The 15° single guide comes with one 1/8" bushing and one 3/8" bushing.
Bits are not included. We recommend using step drill bits that are specifically designed for use with pocket hole jigs.
We have two types of step drills for pocket hole jigs. Both should be used at low speed with the bit just turning as it enters the pocket hole guide.
C. The one-piece HSS bit is 5-1/2" long, with a 1/8" dia. by 5/8" long pilot and 3/8" dia. by 82° countersink.
D. The two-piece bit is more sophisticated. It has a 3/16" dia. HSS pilot bit, 6" long, that is adjustable to project up to 2-1/2". The high-carbon steel countersink portion has a grub screw as well as a split shank to grip the pilot bit. The two-piece bit is very versatile for freehand drilling and countersinking as well.
Well made bits.
