Here’s a review from one satisfied customer
“I bought this kit to build frames for a raised panel heirloom chest. I considered buying the Rocket jig, but since this one was so much cheaper and would get the job done, I opted for the less expensive variety.
A couple of test pieces went well, so I went ahead and plunged into my assembling my frames. When you’re only cutting a few holes, you don’t miss the extras that come with the Rocket, but after a while I began thinking how much easier my life would be had I bought the more expensive kit. That being said, my pocket holes look great and work really well. These things are solid! I love the fact that you don’t have to wait for glue to dry. I haven’t tested the joints to failure, but I’ve put significant force on them, with no ill results.
Insofar as choosing the less expensive option, I was reminded of what my Dad always says…buy the cheaper one, and you’ll regret it every time you use it. Buy the more expensive one, and you only regret it when you have to pay for it. But I’ve already thrown so much money at this heirloom chest project that I needed to start paring back somewhere!
A little advice for those who do purchase this kit: I found that I could use my Quick-Grip clamps for clamping down the jig to the workpiece and drilling the holes. When it comes to screwing in the pocket screws, however, I got much better results from clamping the whole thing together pretty firmly with a C-clamp and then screwing in the screws with a cordless drill. Good luck!”
