I picked up a Kreg single pocket hole jig a couple of weeks ago for 20 bucks and have fallen in love with the concept. Even “Norm” uses the pocket screws for doing face frames. I saw that Harbor Freight had a 2 hole jig that looked like it worked like the Kreg 2 hole jig for a whole lot less money. I thought I would give it a try. I had a 20 percent off any single item coupon and it cost me 54 bucks instead of 99 bucks for the kreg. The Kit came with the step drill, lock collar, and a bunch of screws that I wont use. The jig is very well made, maybe even better than the kreg, It’s solid AU and no plastic. It works great, but I could not give it 5 stars because of the manual. The Kreg, manual gives you all the mesurmants to set the stop collars for the different size wood. It takes a lot of trial and error to get this jig set up right. Over all Im quite happy with it. It will become a well used tool in the shop.
