Hi Izzy, that is really quick using that fixture. I thought that it was a manual clamping at first. Clamping and un- clamping is my biggest portion of time when doing pocket holes and this would definitely be a plus in my shop. Do you think a foot pressure one would work with the right geometry on the foot pedal and arm and spring to back off the clamp when you let up on the pedal?

Thanks, Jim

Ingenius Izzy. I don’t use pocket hole joinery in my work, but I can sure appreciate what a great machine you have built. Well done. I’m sure that there are many on LJ who will want to make this.

Holy crap!! A rapid fire jig! I am just starting to play around with this type of joinery and can see where this would be a real time saver. Great job, thanks for posting it.

Add a little t track and some flip stops and you you got it made! Sure is a good alternative to the $3000 machines. Good job
