If you do face frames professionally it’s the fastest way to
go. Castle/Porter Cable and similar machines drill a different
angle for the hole – route the hole actually, so unlike with the
Kreg system you’d have durable carbide router cutters
instead of that that consumable steel drill bit.

We use a Foreman and have it mounted in a bench 204” long. For the price of the machine I’d say it’s a major time saver when compared to the older Kreg pneumatic-clamp/hand-drill setup we used to use. What formerly required 10 minutes now takes about a minute since we’re no longer waiting for a drill to wind down then repositioning a large piece of plywood in a vertical position.

The Foreman is sort of entry level for pocket hole machines from what I’ve seen but we’re not really cabinet makers so we don’t need anything bigger.
