Don’t waste your money on all of the add-ons , as the basics will do just fine…unless you plan on using it in production shop situations. Pocket hole screws are required for this system.
I bought a larger Kreg system and have yet to even set it up.
Using the mini jig , Kwiklamp, , step drill and square drive bits is all the versatility I’ve needed to date .
The rest of the kit is just sitting and collecting dust : (
MDF and Particleboard will require the use of the coarse threaded screws used for softwoods. You will want to set the torque on your driver so as not to strip out the connections in those products.
Enjoy your new Kreg system : )

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
