From the latest generation of Kreg’s pocket-hole joinery system, this compact, portable jig lets you make strong pocket-hole joints in the workshop, on a jobsite or anywhere you happen to be working.
Its built-in pistol-grip clamp lets you position the jig one-handed, and an adjustment knob lets you control the clamping force to permit a firm hold without marring the work. With jaws that are lined with a non-slip material to prevent shifting in use, the quick-release clamp has a handle that rotates for clearance next to an adjacent surface.
Made from glass-reinforced nylon with a hardened steel drilling insert, the jig lets you center two holes 9/16", 7/8" or 1 7/16" apart, depending on material width. It comes with a 6 1/4" HSS stepped drill bit with a 3/16" diameter by 1/2" pilot, a 3/8" diameter counterbore, and a 1/4" hex shank that’s grooved for use in quick-change chucks. For easy, accurate depth settings, simply align a hole in the included depth collar with one of the engraved markings on the drill-bit shank, indicating the correct placement for 1/2", 3/4" and 1 1/2" thick material.
The kit also comes with a combination hex key and material-thickness gauge, a 6" #2 square-recess driver and 100 pocket-hole screws (sixty 1 1/4" screws and forty 2 1/2" screws) as well as a robust all-steel step-over clamp with a 2" jaw capacity, used to hold both parts of the joint in position while you drive the screws.
