Wanting to try out pocket hole joinery, I bought a pocket hole jig of ebay for $12 and a $8 stepped drillbit from Sears.
The toggle clamp is also a $8 clamp of ebay.
Soon to find that clamping this jig to the workpiece every time was timeconsuming.
So I made this jig based on the original Kreg K2 jig that sells for $255, yes you read correct, 255 USD, here in Norway
I works basically the same, and I made a slot to fit the jig i had, and also drilled and threaded a 6 mm hole in the pocket hole jig of ebay to make it slidable up and down as seen in picture 3,4 and 5, to suit different material thicknesess
It holds its position by tightening the knob seen in pic 5.
The hole jig is being held i place by a clamp on the workbench.
The newest Kreg jigs have the toggle clamp handle on the other side of the workpiece, making it easier to reach, but I have no problem reaching over to operate it.
