So I used this to build a couple rustic tables for the homestead. Very easy to use and accurate. Only complaint is the collars for the bits dont stay tight, there should maybe be a flat spot on the bits for the set screw. Once the collar spins, its **** to adjust for another depth and the shaft of the bit gets marred and scarred badly.
Excellent tool, easy to use especially for a amateur like myself.
The quality is fantastic. The face clamp makes for great alignment. The stabilizing bars and stops are great and easy to use!
This is a really nice pocket hole jig, and a good-value kit. The jig is machined aluminum, very precisely made and it's easy to use and accurate. The markings are clear, the threads are neatly machined, etc. The dust collection is excellent and these jigs generate a lot more dust / chips that I ever expected. I would have liked there to be some storage of the hex wrenches with the main body - perhaps a hole drilled in the end with a rubber gasket. Even without this it's a 5-star tool - top of the line that I'll never need to replace. I don't know that it's any more accurate than blue plastic, but I sure like the look and feel better.
Already mounted my jig to a base to make it easier to use, works great. It is made of aluminum and not plastic. Very sturdy, which means it will last.
