Pocket hole jointing involves drilling a hole at an angle — usually 15 degrees — into one work piece, and then joining it to a second work piece with a self-tapping screw.
We have selected this particular pocket hole jig as it differs slightly from the commonly seen jigs on the market - such as Kreg and the Join-A-Jig. One issue with both of these jigs is the flex created by adjusting the height of the guide block to suit different material thicknesses. Rather than adjusting the block height, this jig has two drilling angles - one for material 12 - 25mm thick and the other for thicker material up to 38mm.
This means that the guide blocks remain fixed in the vertical plane and adjustable in the horizontal plane making for a much more rigid jig that does not wear and flex over time with use.
This kit includes the main jig assembly with included adjustable clamp to securely fix the work piece in place, a high quality 9.5mm (3/8in) stepped drill bit for drilling the pocket and pilot holes in one action as well as a block that the guide blocks can be attached to for drilling freehand into work pieces.
We recommend the Robertson round washer head screws for fixing the work pieces together.
