From the latest generation of Kreg’s pocket-hole joinery system, this sturdy, versatile jig is quick to set up and easy to use, letting you make strong pocket-hole joints in a wide range of applications.
To hold the jig in position while you drill, its built-in lever-operated clamp can be operated one-handed and automatically adjusts for stock thicknesses from 1/2" to 1 1/2". The clamp jaws are lined with a non-slip material to prevent shifting in use, and an adjustment knob lets you control the clamping force to permit a firm hold without marring the work. Once set, it automatically maintains the same force regardless of stock thickness, so you can switch workpieces without making adjustments.
Made of glass-reinforced nylon with a steel core for strength, the drill guide block contains three hardened steel bushings that let you space two holes 9/16", 7/8" or 1 7/16" apart, depending on material width.
The jig comes with a 6 1/4" HSS stepped drill bit that has 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 supplied 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.
For improved stability when working with sheet goods or other large stock, it also includes two sturdy stock-support wings that simply snap into place on either side of the jig and can be removed just as easily when not needed. The wings have a hinged lid that lets them double as storage boxes for other small accessories such as pocket-hole screws and drill bits. Sliding work stops, which travel on a 6" track marked in 1/8" increments on the top of each support wing, can be locked in position to ensure precise, repeatable hole placement up to 8 3/4" from the edge of a workpiece.
An included snap-in shroud connects directly to a 1 1/4" vacuum hose and comes with an adapter for connection to a 1-7/8" or 2 1/2" hose for easy debris clearance, with a pivoting outlet that lets you orient the hose to avoid obstruction. The jig also comes with a table clamp that can be used to secure the jig to a workbench or other work surface, a combination hex key and material-thickness gauge, two #2 square-recess drivers (6" and 3" long), and 160 pocket-hole screws (one hundred 1 1/4" screws and sixty 2 1/2" screws).
