What is Pocket Hole Joinery?
Pocket hole joinery is drilling a hole at an angle into one workpiece and then joining it to a second workpiece with a self-tapping screw. Pocket hole joinery can be used in countless applications. Cabinet face frames and carcass-to-face frame construction continue to be two of the most popular applications.

How is it faster?
Pocket hole joinery is significantly faster than other wood joining techniques for the following reasons:

1.   The use of the self-tapping screw eliminates the need to pre-drill the mating workpiece, which avoids many alignment problems caused by having to layout and drill for aligning fasteners as with dowel, biscuit, and mortise and tenon joints.
     
2.   The self-tapping screw serves as an internal clamp that eliminates clamping the joint as the glue dries. This saves the investment in various clamping devices, the time and frustration of clamping, as well as problems associated with pulling the assembly out of square with clamping pressure.
     
3.   Eliminates down time as the glue dries. You can add additional workpieces to the assembly -- sand, rout, and even stain while the glue is still drying. Projects can now be completed in hours rather than days.

Why is it stronger?
Pocket hole joints are remarkably strong because the mechanical screw has physical properties that make it much stronger than a biscuit, dowel, or tenon. Also, the amount of constant clamping force placed on the joint line by driving the screw combined with the latest glue technology makes for a strong wood to wood bond.

Kreg JIG® K3 Master System
The ultimate package for pocket hole joinery from “The Pocket Hole Professionals”. The K3 Kreg Jig is packed with loads of innovative new features. The first of these new features is a three drill guide block that can now be used in two separate tool bodies. Slide the block into the benchtop base and drill pocket holes on your workbench, or remove the drill guide block and quickly place it into the smaller, portable base for use on the job site. The face of the drill guide block now features a metal insert that will produce years of clean-cut pocket holes. In addition, the benchtop base features patent pending front side clamping that places the clamp handle on the same side as you drill - No more reaching around the workpiece to clamp!

Are you tired of having to clean up wood chips after a day of drilling pocket holes? The benchtop base also accepts a snap-on dust collection shroud that can be easily connected to a shop-vac for chip free drilling! We’ve also built-in more height adjustment into the drill guide block, allowing you to center a screw in materials from 1/2” to 1-1/2” thick in 1/8” increments. Another new addition to the K3 model is the Material Support Stop. This innovative feature allows you to place pocket holes in exactly the same location on multiple workpieces for true production style pocket hole drilling. The stop is hinged so it can be easily moved out of the way when drilling panels. Quite simply, the Kreg Jig K3 Master System is the most feature packed pocket hole tool on the market, from the legendary leader in pocket hole technology. Patent Pending (Below - Left).

The Kreg Semi-Automatic, FOREMAN Pocket Hole Machine! When your production needs have outpaced the manual Kreg Jigs, look for the added speed and convenience of the FOREMAN Pocket Hole Machine. The semi-automatic FOREMAN features an electric drill motor and an adjustable clamping cylinder. To operate, simply position your material to be drilled and pull the lever forward. This motion activates the 3/4 hp drill motor and throws the clamping cylinder. Finish the drill stroke by continuing to pull on the lever and then return the lever to the home position (Above - Right).

Self-Tapping Pocket Hole Screws
Kreg self-tapping screws are specially designed for pocket hole joinery. They feature a self-tapping auger point that eliminates pre-drilling and a flat head that seats flushly in the bottom of the pocket hole. All of our screws utilize a #2 square drive recess. The deep recess of the square drive provides positive driver engagement to reduce cam-out. (Below - Left).
