I had this jig in mind for a long time. I saw one similar in a woodworking magazine or a book years ago. It’s finally done. It’ll be handy to drill in dowels or round stock, drill pocket holes at the perfect 15° angle, hold workpieces vertically when drilling for mortises and many more applications I may encounter in the future.

The less commun hardware required are two friction lid supports but one can make equivalent straight sliding bars on a router table or table saw.

All construction details and photos on this page of my blog.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

Best,

Serge

Serge, great job… I have to make one now. I never really thought about what angle pocket holes were drilled at and I use mine all the time. Go figue. Nice set up should work great with my digital angle gauge as well.

Thx for sharing, have a great weekend!!!!!!

Thank you so much, guys, for stopping by and leaving such nice comments. I wonder why I waited so long before building this jig. My next drill press jig will be the one for drilling holes at the end of long workpieces.

By the way, Kreg Tools recommends using at least 2000 RPM when drilling pocket holes if you want your drill bit to last longer.

Best,

Serge
