We have used a kreg jig for a very long time now. I use the jig for face frames and on a very occassional basis we might need to utilize a pocket hole combined with wood glue. For the most part they are just used for face frames in our shop.

We used to utilize a jig set like the one you displayed. Now we have a small bench top drill press set up with a clamp/table top that holds our work piece at the correct angle and allows us to drill the pocket hole in any face frame material we need to much quicker then using a hand held drill and in doing it this way I have a lot less wear and tear on our shoulder. But we might drill more pocket holes then you plan.

It does look like you have a great buy from a garage sale as those jigs are costly brand new.
