I bought this 9 months ago, and this is the first time I used it. I knew there would be situations where pocket hole joinery would be beneficial due to it’s swiftness and ‘gets the job done’. I am assembling a bunch of french cleat cabinet/shelving and this makes quick work. So glad I went for the Kreg 5 system instead of the Kreg 4. The handle towards you sure seems alot better than the other way around. The clamping pressure suffices to hold even a 2’ board on end.
